The Safety of Ladies Toilet

Recently, the Police arrested a man who filmed actress Feby Febiola while she was urinating at the ladies toilet of an upscale shopping mall in down town Jakarta.
 
Please find the story (below) that I have quoted from The Jakarta Globe.

Police Issue Warning After Pervert Films Actress Urinating


Jakarta Police have recommended that an upscale mall in the central city installs closed-circuit television after a man allegedly followed an Indonesian celebrity into a female toilet and filmed her urinating.

“The door to the ladies room must be equipped with CCTV to prevent perverts or peeping toms and a female janitor should always be around,” police spokesman Snr. Comr. Boy Rafli Amar told The Jakarta Globe on Monday.

He added that security officers should be placed near toilets.

Boy was commenting after a Peeping Tom followed soap opera actress Feby Febiola into the toilets at FX Mall in Senayan, Central Jakarta, at 10 p.m. on June 30.

Feby told Metro TV that when she was using the toilet she saw a cellphone being held over the cubicle wall.

She screamed and banged on the toilet’s door but when the person occupying the toilet refused to open it, she called security officers.

“A cleaner said she had scolded the man earlier for entering the ladies’ room to which he replied that he entered the ladies’ room by mistake,” said M Ilham, head of security at the mall.

He said he believed the incident was the first of its kind at the mall and that he believed the offender was drunk.

“His breath smelled like alcohol and he grinned when we questioned him. He didn’t say anything, he just smiled,” Ilham said.

Security guards escorted Feby and the alleged pervert, a university student named Yogi, to Tanah Abang Police where she filed a police report.

Police confiscated the man’s Blackberry and found another five videos of the perpetrator’s victims, including Feby’s.

She returned to Tanah Abang Police on July 8 to complete the police investigation report.

The police are still investigating.

No breaking news. But gee, it is an amazing little and juicy item among the miscellaneous news. A weird one really.

Being curious is okay for a student of course. But peeping is probably not one of the methods lectures at the University to satisfy that.

Since the guy obviously is pretty clumsy, I guess he must have been been desperate.

Now it takes all sorts to make a world, however we could do without this weird one. So after the police has dealt with him he maybe should consult a good psychologist.

Hi Colson,
I agree that this is not a breaking news. I posted it because the police are taking very fast and serious reaction, maybe because the victim is a celebrity.
I hope that similar reaction would be taken if the victim is a common person.

That's why I drink moderately, several times I caught myself doing stupid stuff when hang over kicks-in during the morning starts.

Admittedly there is selective and double standard in dealing with investigation.

@DownloadFreeStuff,
That means that ladies should be very careful with you ... lol.
Thank you for dropping by.

@Umihoney,
That's the point, especially in cases like this.

I thought about posting this "news" over at my place. But figured, nah.

I am pretty sure that this is not something that is unique to Indonesia. Being drunk is no excuse for what was done.

It should not make any difference who the victim was / is. Although, you would be forgiven for thinking that it does having read the article.

The thing I remember about malls in Indonesia, particularly places like eX, fX, and Grand Indonesia, was that no matter which toilet you used there was always security and janitors close by. So, I am a little mystified as to how seemingly easy it was for this clown to get into the ladies room and climb up and peer over a stall.

I guess it is time to let the law take its course. A complaint has been lodged and the process is to be followed.

Hi Rob,
Being drunk is really no excuse for doing nasty things like you've said.
I am also surprised that this thing can happen at FX mall, that's why I have posted it here.
I hope that the laws will treat other victims similarly.

This is disgusting. i can't believe someone would do something like this, as if violating the actress's privacy was a good thing. Sick.

CherylT,
What the man did has been very disgusting indeed.
