Berlin (dpa) - Federal Minister of Justice Christine Lambrecht wants to make the secret photography under skirts and dresses by law under penalty. "Who photographed women and girls secretly under the skirt, intervenes massively in their privacy and their right to privacy," the SPD politician told the editorial network Germany. So-called upskirting continues to be punishable as a misdemeanor, does not provide effective protection and does not make it clear to perpetrators that their "humiliating and degrading behavior" is absolutely unacceptable.
