Authorities in South Korea’s capital Seoul have pledged to undertake daily checks of public toilets across the city to ensure cameras have not been hidden in them. This intense monitoring comes as a trend for spy cam porn – known as “molka” – has had activists up in arms. Videos are often uploaded online without the victims knowing. Over 6,000 cases were reported last year – around a threefold increase from 2012.

Experts have commented that the real number is likely to be far higher.

The announcement comes after tens of thousands of women took to the streets of Seoul in early August with placards reading “South Korea the nation of spycam” and “My life is not your porn”.

Around 80 per cent of spy camera porn victims are women.

According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, the city only currently employs 50 workers to check over 20,000 public toilets.
