We’ve heard stories of spy cams installed in bathrooms, but it’s not often we hear about spying on aeroplane bathrooms.
Earlier this year on 5 May, Lee Choon Ping, a Malaysian man was charged for video voyeurism when he allegedly installed a spycam in the bathroom of the aeroplane mid-flight. It was a United Airlines flight 646 from San Diego to Houston, United States.
According to ABC News, a female passenger from the first-class cabin entered the bathroom and “noticed an item with a blinking blue light” that was located “near the cabinet and wall area close to a door hinge”.
She then picked it up using tissue and passed it to the cabin crew on board after leaving the bathroom.
After the flight landed at George Bush International Airport, the cabin crew handed it to the United Airlines Corporate Security where they confirmed it was indeed a video camera.
While viewing the footage that was recorded on the camera, they noticed the man who installed the camera wore a watch on his left wrist and a small bracelet on his right. However, his face was not clearly identifiable. It was only until the FBI San Diego, and the Houston Police Department looked into the airport’s CCTV managed to track down the suspect by matching his clothes.
Apparently, this wasn’t the first flight Lee Choon Ping installed a spy cam on. Deleted footages recovered from device revealed he spied on an Emirates Airlines flight as well.
Lee Choon Ping was revealed to an employee at Halliburton, an American oil company. Halliburton has announced they are cooperating with investigations to get to the bottom of the issue.
Lee could face up to one year in prison if convicted.
