A former chef at tapas bar Jamon Jamon has been accused of setting up a phone camera to film women relieving themselves in the restaurant’s ladies’ toilet.
Arulshandh Balendran, 30, is alleged to have strategically placed his mobile phone on a pipe in the toilets of the eatery in Haverstock Hill, Belsize Park.
The court heard how the phone was only spotted when a woman, who cannot legally be named, went to the toilet and looked up after a piece of toilet paper fell from the ceiling.
Appearing at Highbury Magistrates’ Court today with a Tamil interpreter, Mr Balendran pleaded not guilty to a charge of voyeurism.
The incident is alleged to have taken place on May 31.
