TWO men who secretly filmed a woman in the shower have lost appeals against their convictions.
The defendants hid a mobile phone on the shelf of a bathroom they shared with the 50-year-old Indian victim.
They managed to make several recordings of her taking a shower in July 2016 before she discovered the phone and told her husband.
The defendants, also from India, were previously convicted of molestation by the High Criminal Court, which sentenced each of them to a year in jail. They appealed against the decision, but the Supreme Criminal Appeals Court upheld the verdict yesterday.
“Despite the defendants denying the charge, the evidence submitted by prosecutors is sufficient to find them guilty,” stated the appeal court ruling.
“Video footage taken from the mobile phone hidden by the defendants showed they filmed her (the victim) while she was taking a shower.
“The defendants will be deported after completing their sentences.”
The defendants, aged 24 and 43, did not appear in court for the ruling. They filmed the victim at an apartment they shared in Ghufool with the woman and her husband, hiding the phone behind bars of soap in the bathroom.
During an earlier hearing the victim, who was present to give evidence, burst into tears as she came face to face with the defendants.
