Taipei Metro Sees Rise in Privacy Violation Cases 今年北捷已29起涉嫌偷拍案 近2月案件增

So far this year, Taipei Metro has seen 29 incidents of people secretly filming others. They account for 20 percent of all criminal cases. The Taipei City Police Department's Rapid Transit Division say the stations where incidents most frequently occur are Taipei Main Station, Songjiang Nanjing Station, and Zhongxiao Dunhua Station. The public is also reminded that these incidents frequently take place on escalators.


A man with a phone in his hand follows closely behind a woman and tries to film what's under her skirt. He was caught in the act, and a conflict ensued. However, the suspect managed to escape.

Sung Chun-liang, Captain, Criminal Investigation Div., Rapid Transit Div., TCPD: “The suspect shed his jacket and fled through the gate. We arrested him two weeks later.”

There was also the case of a man in his 50s riding the metro. He had both hands placed on his waist, but the lens of his phone camera was directed at a woman seated across from him. He was investigated for filming her without her knowledge. According to statistics compiled by the Taipei City Police Department's Rapid Transit Division, Taipei Metro has seen 29 cases of offenses against privacy so far this year, which account for 18 percent of all criminal cases. The number of incidents has risen significantly in the past two months, with 12. The public is reminded that these incidents frequently take place on escalators.

Sung Chun-liang, Captain, Criminal Investigation Div., Rapid Transit Div., TCPD: “The main technique used is to take advantage of the height difference on escalators to try and film under women's skirts. If you are a victim of this or sexual harassment, you can call out, ask station personnel for help, or dial 110 to report the incident.”

There have been 49 incidents of people secretly filming others on escalators in the past year and a half. There were also eight incidents that occurred inside metro carriages and six in bathrooms. The stations where incidents most frequently occurred were Taipei Main Station, Songjiang Nanjing Station, and Zhongxiao Dunhua Station. The police say the Stalking and Harassment Prevention Act is not applicable, but perpetrators can be prosecuted for offenses against privacy.

 

 

 

緊貼長裙女子,灰衣男子起色心,手機朝她靠近,企圖偷拍裙底風光,當場被抓包。另外,也有一名50多歲男子,坐在捷運車廂,雙手放腰間,手機卻鏡頭對準,坐在對面的短裙女子,涉嫌偷拍隱私處。

台北市捷運警察隊刑事組長宋俊良說:「該犯嫌情急之下,竟脫下外套,直接衝出閘門逃逸,所以我們是過兩個星期,才查獲這個男子。」

捷運警察統計,今年至今,台北捷運已經發生29起妨害秘密案件,佔全部刑案的18%,甚至近兩個月,案件數還大幅增加,一口氣出現12件。警方提醒,特別是手扶梯,容易成為下手目標。

台北市捷運警察隊刑事組長宋俊良表示:「犯罪手法多是利用手扶梯高低差,偷拍女性裙底風光,遇到偷拍或性騷擾行為,可立即大聲呼喊或請站務人員求助,亦可撥打110報案電話。」

利用捷運手扶梯偷拍,近一年半以來,發生49件,佔整體大宗。再來分別是車廂內和廁所,各有8件和6件。捷運台北車站、松江南京站,以及忠孝敦化站,經常發生類似案件。不過這幾起偷拍,警方表示,新上路的跟騷法無法適用,但依然會構成妨害秘密罪。
