In France, upskirting — taking pictures of girls under their skirts without their knowledge in public places — recognized crime. It is reported by BMFTV.
It became part of the sexual assault bill which was recently submitted to the Senate. Now the guilty will be imprisoned for a period of one year and fines of up to 15 thousand euros. Depending on the seriousness of the crime, the period may be extended up to two years of imprisonment and a fine of up to 30 thousand euros.
In mid-June of this year in the UK, the MP-Tory MP Christopher chope has blocked the adoption of a law prohibiting upskirting.
The Deputy did not publicly commented on its decision. According to the initiator of the law Gina Martin, PSE voted against because the law is not widely discussed. He also told her not really sure what “upskirting”. Martin promised to help him to deal with it.
The adoption of the law on upskirting in Britain supported the Cabinet of Ministers and representatives of public organizations. The Ministry of justice also promised to speed up consideration of the bill. In Scotland a similar law operates since 2010.
In Canada, Belgium and some American States upskirting has long been considered a crime.
