20th May 2022 – (Hong Kong) Under the COVID-19 epidemic, it is difficult for Hong Kong people to travel abroad. Many locals will choose to go to local hotels for staycation.
A couple was filmed performing sexual intercourse in a hotel room at Kowloon Shangri-La, Tsim Sha Tsui by another guest in the room above.
The relevant footage was later circulated on the Internet. It can be seen from the clip that a naked girl in the hotel room raised her hands and leaned against the window sill. A naked man behind her held the woman’s chest lightly with his hands and they started to engage in vigorous sex. The video lasted for around 1 minute.
The video was secretly filmed. Many hotel guests do not put down the curtains to protect their privacy, they can always give other peeping Tom the opportunity to take unlawful video. The person who filmed the video may have committed the crime of “dishonest use of computers” and can be sentenced to 5 years in prison. In addition, under the Crimes Ordinance, any person who, without lawful authority or excuse, indecently exposes any part of his body in a public place or in public view, commits an offence and is liable to a fine of HK$1,000 and imprisonment for 6 months.
