KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 11 — Clothing company H&M Malaysia has conducted an inspection on fitting rooms in all of it stores in the country.
This is in response to Twitter users’ concerns that footage from concealed cameras in fitting rooms at a Kuala Lumpur store was being sold online.
“In response to recent concerns about hidden cameras in H&M fitting rooms, we have conducted an inspection of the fitting rooms in all H&M stores in Malaysia and are working to ensure that there are no security breaches that will compromise the privacy of our customers.
“Our customers’ safety is of utmost importance to us. All findings about the recent concerns about hidden cameras in H&M fitting rooms to date have been reported to the police, and investigations are currently ongoing,” the company said in a statement posted on its official H&M Malaysia Twitter page.
In a report by The Star today, it is alleged that the videos are being sold online, with sellers claiming to have recordings of couples and individuals in the fitting rooms.
The matter was first highlighted by user @meleisgw on January 8, but she has since deleted her tweet.
She later posted an update in which an alleged victim claimed to have recognised herself in one of the videos, and that the video may have been taken in October last year.
The Star had also reported that in another post, a user claimed that she spotted her friend in one of the videos.
According to @meleisgw, she received a DM (direct message) saying that a police report has been filed on the matter.
