September 13, 2021 | 3 Comments

Noting they are “aware of videos and images being circulated on social media showing intimate encounters,” the police have reminded the public that the “non-consensual sharing of intimate images is an offence.”

A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service [BPS] is aware of videos and images being circulated on social media showing intimate encounters between locals and advises members of the public that the non-consensual sharing of intimate images is an offence.

“Residents are reminded that the Criminal Code Amendment [Non-Consensual Sharing of Intimate Images] Act 2021 became law on 15th June this year and under the Act, persons convicted of relevant offences can receive up to five years in prison.

“Therefore, should any member of the public receive such content, it is strongly recommended that they delete it and not share it.

“It should also be noted that circulating such content could additionally constitute an offence under the Telecommunications Act 1986 – with the punishment, on summary conviction, listed as one year in prison or a fine of $2,000 – or both.”

    It boggles my mind that anyone would film such stuff in the first place with the intention of forwarding it and then pass it on to someone who is so untrustworthy and has no shame that then sends it on again.
    There must be a whole lot of very embarrassed people out there .

    Sad. We are so worth more than this gutter behavior.

    I honestly feel sorry for people who do this kind of thing to people. They obviously have some serious unresolved issues they should be working through. But then not everyone feels remorse, do they? Or any feelings at all apart from the basic lower functioning lizard emotions.
