On September 2nd, University of Seoul (UOS) ran an inspection and campaign to remove hidden cameras on the campus, specifically in private women’s areas. One hundred female sheriffs and 50 UOS employees took part in this event, which lasted for one hour. The inspectors checked women’s restrooms and shower stalls in every building throughout the campus in teams of three, each consisting of two sheriffs and one employee. During the inspection, they did not find any hidden cameras.

This inspection was held due to concerns about the crime of taking pictures or videos without permission. This concern occurred because of the last year’s incident ? a case related to taking inappropriate pictures. After the search, there was a campaign in front of the Student Hall, with participants handing out folders containing the information that taking pictures without permission is illegal.

This event was held in accordance with the pledge of the Student Council, Siwon. However, the Council expressed disappointment about this event to the officials since the public was notified before the event in the form of a banner. One member of Siwon said that this notification increased the possibility of perpetrators removing their cameras in advance. In response to this criticism, Jong-su Park, the Action Officer for Women’s Policy, answered that there will be more careful consideration regarding advertisement next time the event is held. Park also promised that this kind of inspection and improvement of social awareness will take place more often in the future.
