潜逃计划败露 法官禁涉偷拍高材生出国

涉嫌偷拍最少11名少女沐浴视频的22岁高材生,在被发现有意趁着出国留学时潜逃,法官昨日(1月16日)撤销批准高材生到英国大学升学的决定。 据《今日报》报导,法官表示,基于控方展示了被告传送给友人有关其出国寻求庇护计划的手机短讯,成为有力证据,因此同意控方指被告拥有潜逃倾向,即被告有高度潜逃的风险。 被告是于上周申请继续到英国知名大学深造,并且已经获得法院批准。这也并非被告首次申请出国留学。 惟,在上周一名惊觉自己也是受害者之一的女子报警,并出示被告有意在外国寻求庇护的手机短讯,控方即刻于此证据向法庭申请,反对让被告出国。 法庭维持“封口”庭令 另一方面,昨日在法院上,律师也针对是否要撤销禁止公开被告名字庭令,展开辩论。 法庭是基于被告与受害者熟识,为了保护受害者身份而下令有关“封口”庭令,因此除了被告和受害者的名字,被告就读的大学名称也不能够公开。 然而,控方指出,12名受害者中,有10人认为应该公布被告的名字,剩余的两人中有一人未成年,其家人要求不要征询她的意见,而另一人则有所保留。 法官表示,有关庭令必须维持,因为12人中有两名受害者没有明确同意自己的身份有可能曝光,所以不同意公开被告名字。 被告所面对的控状于本月3日增加到18项,受害者也从原本的8名增加至12人,包括一名15岁的未成年少女。 昨日,他被指控曾于2018年偷拍一名女子的裙底照,因此控状增加到20项,而控方也表示将针对20项控状进行抗辩。 被告被指于2018年在阿尔柏王园地铁站出口的电动扶梯处,偷拍了一名女子的裙子照。…

游轮有乘客确诊返航 陈振声称“并非预料之外”

皇家加勒比游轮公司旗下的“海洋量子号”游轮,在前日(7日)启航,进行“无目的地”航行,但因一名83岁乘客,在冠病检测时呈阳性,结果游轮在今日需返航狮城。 乘客上船前都需要检测,上述老翁此前的检测结果为阴性。据新加坡旅游局指出,他因腹泻到船上的医疗中心求医,但却检测到阳性反应。所有曾接触患者的船员和乘客都要隔离。 不过,贸工部长陈振声,却认为游轮会出现冠病病例“并非预料之外”,要有完善的措施更为重要,如此在出现情况时能够迅速反应。 他称,政府当初允许游轮试行复航,就设想可能会出现这种情况。“所以为何要有措施,以确保类似情况发生,能够迅速做追踪、隔离必要的病例,以及让其余活动能继续进行。” 他称,当我国从疫情恢复、经济活动复苏,便采取风险管理的策略(risk management strategy),而不是消除风险的策略,不因为达到零风险而什么都不做,这也不符合我国的整体战略。
