Korean Government injects 5 billion won to stop secret filming in toilets
The South Korean government will inject 5 billion won to stop secret filming, known as “molka” in Korea.
The Ministry of Public Administration and Security, the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family and the National Police Agency will check 50,000 public washrooms around the nation in hopes of eradicating filming of women which ends up on porn sites.
Local government buildings, police stations, education offices, public agencies, and women’s organizations will be subject to the inspection.
Private businesses will be inspected when requested by the building manager as well as large private buildings such as department stores, shopping malls, and convention centers.
The inspection is done by checking the hidden area of the camera with a radio detection device and checking the reflection light of the camera lens with the lens detection type device and confirming the position of the secret camera.
Toilets which have passed inspection will have a special sticker attached to the restroom door.
