Uber driver caught with over 800 upskirt videos

Local | Jane Cheung 8 Mar 2019

Police found over 800 upskirt videos on the phone of an Uber driver who installed hidden cameras to capture upskirt footage, the Sha Tin Magistrates' Court heard yesterday.

Wong Yiu-long, 44, pleaded guilty to one count of driving a motor vehicle for the carriage of passengers for hire or reward and one count of committing an act outraging public decency when he was bought before Acting Chief Magistrate So Wai-tak.

The case came to light when Wong was driving a passenger, X, on September 8.

X, 28, called Wong, who called himself "Chun Kit" on Uber, to drive her from Tsim Sha Tsui to City One in Sha Tin. Soon after getting into Wong's black Toyota seven-seater, she fell asleep.

Wong was stopped by police for a breathalyzer test near Lion Rock Tunnel. He failed the test and was taken to a police vehicle for a more detailed assessment.

Police then discovered two pinhole cameras at the rear of the front seats.

Although Wong passed the breathalyzer, he was arrested for the Uber driving and taking indecent footage. Police found 883 upskirt videos on his phone. Wong, who claimed to be in logistics, is married with a son. He said he was an Uber driver to cover his debts and that he took upskirt videos out of curiosity.

Wong said the videos were for his private collection, but So questioned whether it was feasible to watch live streams and drive at the same time. Wong said he looked at the screen only when he stopped at the lights.

So adjourned sentencing to March 21 while awaiting reports on Wong, who was remanded in custody.
