Glass ceiling escapade could end in jail

Two Dutch bloggers who claim they filmed up women's skirts from a Heerhugowaard underground carpark to "warn the public of the intimate views afforded by see-through stairs" will appear in court in October, Reuters reports.

The outrage was facilitated by a glass ceiling atop the carpark's stairwell, "allowing people to look up at shoppers passing above". The pair were nabbed after someone complained, and subsequently charged with filming people without their permission.

For their part, the subterranean voyeurs say on Geen Stijl that the female subjects knew they were being recorded, and further claim the exercise was simply to "see whether the local council had done anything about the transparent ceiling after the issue was brought to their attention several months before".

According to Dutch news agency ANP, the maximum penalty for unauthorised upskirt vigilante blogging is two months' chokey. ®
