Voyeurism offences report published

January 8, 2021

The Security Bureau today published the public consultation report on the proposed introduction of offences of voyeurism, intimate prying and non-consensual photography of intimate parts and related offences.


The Government earlier proposed to introduce six new criminal offences and consulted the public's views.


During the three-month public consultation that concluded on October 7 last year, the Government received about 200 submissions, including those from major stakeholders such as the Law Society of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Bar Association, the Equal Opportunities Commission and the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data.


The bureau said the majority of the submissions received expressed strong support for the legislative proposals and some of them also offered constructive views on specific proposals.


It will brief the Legislative Council Panel on Security members on the consultation's outcome and the detailed legislative proposals on January 15.


The Government is working on the drafting of the proposed amendment bill. Its target is to submit the amendment bill to LegCo in the second half of this legislative year.
