Dating Website (Photo : YouTube)

Naked photos posted online often become viral, especially in social media sites, like what happened to the pictures of a Chinese woman who walked inside IKEA China without underwear. It was the woman’s friend who posted the photo which authorities ordered deleted.

Since the friend complied with the order, it appears there would be no problem for the poster of the naked image. However, such was not the case in Singapore involving a Chinese woman, 29-year-old Yeo Hui Qi, a freelance copywriter.

A Singapore court gave her, also known as Yeo Min Ping, a one-month jail term for publishing 48 naked photos of the former girlfriend of Yeo Hui Qi’s current boyfriend. The images were taken from her boyfriend’s laptop which angered her because he kept the photos even if he had separated from the former girlfriend.

The jealous copywriter uploaded a folder of the ex-girlfriend’s photo in a thumb drive and then published in on an image-storage site after five months. Yeo Min Ping titled the folder “Naughtiness,” reported Straits Times.

While Yeo Min Ping created a fake profile to hide her identity, she used the former girlfriend’s real name and published the woman’s topless and naked images. Not content with that, the jealous copywriter made more fake profiles of the victim on two websites, one of which was a dating website and the other a porn website.

Before she was granted a $10,000 bail by District Judge Lee Poh Choo, Yeo Min Ping pleaded guilty to only one of three charges of transmitting an obscene object by electronic means from her Yishun Street house on Feb. 10, 2014.

The victim and Yeo Min Ping’s 32-year-old boyfriend met in a university abroad, and she sent him the nude photos beginning in 2011 while they were still on a relationship. Although he graduated in December that year, they kept a long-distance relationship until 2013. Middle of that year, the man and Yeo Min Ping entered into a relationship, and after three months, she discovered the images on his laptop.

In 2012, Singapore passed a Personal Data Protection Act which excludes public authorities, and the purpose of which was not to protect privacy although it could be invoked, according to an address by Lord Neuberger on Sept. 21, 2015, at the Singapore Academy of Law Annual Lecture 2015.
