A senior attache is on trial for crimes committed in the United States. arrested for placing a secret camera in the unisex toilet of it`s embassy in Washington DC. Commodore Alfred Keating has been charged with attempting to make “an intimate visual recording” and is currently on trial in Auckland, local media reported. At the time of the incident the New Zealand Embassy employed 60 people in Washington DC.
The Commodore argued for months that his identity should be kept secret as it would damage his chances of employment in the future as well as sully the reputation of the military branch and the overall men and women in uniform. Clearly his request was denied and his name was published.
These requests were ignored as the camera that was confiscated by authorities was found to have a thick layer of dust on it which means it was placed there and used for months. So it seems the punishment was more severe.
The camera and its equipment had his DNA traces on it and the camera`s driver and his computer all had traces of his DNA as well.
