Principal who installed ‘hidden camera’ in female teacher’s bathroom is fired

The principal of an elementary school in Anyang, Gyeonggi Province, who was caught installing a hidden camera in the bathroom of a female teacher at her school, was eventually fired.

On the 25th, the Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education held a disciplinary committee meeting on the 17th and announced that this was the case with the principal of Anyang Mo Elementary School. Mr. A has been released from his position, and dismissal is the highest level of disciplinary action against educational officials. Earlier, the provincial office of education conducted an audit of Mr. A immediately after the incident.

The provincial office of education will issue a new principal on the 1st of next month to normalize the elementary school, which had been operated as the principal’s representative.

Person A, who was indicted this month on charges of violating the Act on Special Cases concerning the Punishment of Sexual Violence Crimes, is accused of installing a small camera inside the bathroom of a female teacher at an elementary school where she is the principal. He is also accused of filming a woman’s body with his cell phone.

A small camera installed near the toilet by Mr. A was discovered by a school employee who was trying to use the toilet and reported to the school.

The police were suspicious of Mr. A’s reluctance to report, even though he was a school administrator, and after interviewing him to confirm the crime, he urgently arrested Mr. A on the 28th of last month.

Six videos of victim B’s body and three photos were found on A’s cell phone. At the beginning of the investigation, Mr. A claimed that there was no sexual intention as to the reason for installing the camera in the bathroom, but later overturned his statement, saying, “I committed the crime for sexual purposes.” The trial for Mr. A will be held at Anyang Branch of the Suwon District Court on the 3rd of next month.
