When you pick up a handphone from a school campus/anywhere, what would you do?
a) bring it to the lost & found counter/police station b) trade it in for a new handphone c) keep it for personal use d) transfer the pictures and videos in the phone to your computer and upload it on the net.
Apparently d) is the option that is gaining in popularity in Singapore these days and it leaves some wondering how potential victims can be better protected from such malicious acts.
Case in point: The most recent case (which has yet to be reported in the mainstream media but which is currently spreading like wild fire in our very own local forums as we speak) of such an incident involves an NYP cheerleader. According to various yet to be verified sources, a rival who was jealous of tammy's popularity stole the latter's handphone which contained private intimate video clips of tammy and her boyfriend. The rival extracted the clips onto her computer and mass mailed it to NYP students and staff. The 10 minute clip ended up in popular local pornographic forums and has reached audiences as far as the UK and US within a day. Some EDMWers (who happen to be students of NYP) have also gone into the school's database and digged up tammy's full name, email address and faculty.
Further sources revealed that this is not the first sex scandal involving NYP. Not too long ago, a NYP lecturer by the name of Susan Chua was implicated in a sex scandal involving a student from the same school. For those interested in the Susan Chua NYP Sex Scandal, you can read more about it here.
It has been rumored that NYP authorities are looking into expelling tammy (Could my readers who are studying in NYP please confirm this?) My question (to NYP authorities) is: Shouldn't the girl who stole tammy's handphone and mass mailed the video clip to the whole of NYP be expelled instead? Also (to my law students/lawyers readers), is there a legal case against this malicious girl? (If there isn't, there should be)
Moral of the story: If you want to take private intimate videos of yourself, don't use your handphone (especially if you are in Singapore, where there are so many cases of people losing their handphones every day).
