Stacey Dooley Confronts Sex Criminal Over Hidden Camera Snaps Of Women

Stacey Dooley Confronts Sex Criminal Over Hidden Camera Snaps Of Women

Stacey Dooley is known for her hard hitting, no bullsh*t approach, having interviewed everyone from paedophiles to arms dealers.

So, it should come as no surprise that she didn't hold back in her new BBC Three interview, entitled Spycam Sex Criminals.

As the name suggests, the film explores molka - an illegal practice in South Korea whereby criminals hide cameras to obtain pornographic pictures and footage of women without their consent.

And as well as talking to victims, Stacey sought to speak to those perpetrating the crimes.

During a conversation with one man, who revealed he'd taken 8,000 unsolicited pictures in the last year, Stacey sought to delve into how his crimes sat with his conscience.

"I just collect them," the man says. "I don't do anything else with them. I've always been lonely and alone. Taking pictures and making them part of my collection, that's what gave me satisfaction."

Stacey responds: "I get the impression you don't think it's wrong... I'm not trying to catch you out, I'm just trying to truly understand what you're thinking."

To which the man cagily replies: "Society and the law think it's wrong and I'm aware of what they're saying so I don't really want to deny them".

"But do you think it's wrong? Tell me honestly from your heart, do you think it's wrong or do you think it's okay?," she pushes.

"With those pictures, I never uploaded them to the internet or put them on websites or tried to make money from them or shared them to humiliate the person," he says. "None of that happened."

But, seeming justifiably frustrated, Stacey interjects: "I accept that you may not have shared the images but I think you're missing the point entirely.

"It's her body. You never had that right in the first place and I feel like you don't recongise that."

"I feel there's no direct harm in what I did, but indirectly, from their point of view, there could be psychological damage," he reluctantly concedes.

The interview isn't the only deeply affecting moment in the film. Stacey also interviews a woman whose boyfriend sold a sex tape of her, and a family who tragically lost their daughter to suicide after she because a victim of molka.

The perpetrator was a clinical pathologist at a hospital, who had drilled a hole in a bookshelf opposite a women's locker room so that he could film them with a secret camera.

The victim's father says: "One time she called at dawn [after having] the same nightmare where the perpetrator's face would appear. She kept dreaming it.

"At first my daughter took antidepressants but she continued to have a hard time.

"The fear that someone she knows could have seen it... she was tortured by that thought."

Stacey Dooley's Spycam Sex Criminals is on BBC iPlayer as of today.
