The owner of one of Internet Cafes in Malaysia installed a mini camera in the ladies’ room – not in the room itself, but right in the w.c. pan. One of the visitors found the cam incidentally and called the police. Police officers asked questions to the owner of the cafe, but he rejected everything, claiming he heard about the cam for the first time. The police then examined, how the cam was connected, and it turned out that the unique view could be seen on the computer screen of the owner of the cafe. There were several tapes found in the office, which were filmed by that camera. Thirty-year-old “cameraman” was found guilty on several articles of the criminal code: he will most likely spend up to five years in prison.
