Germany prohibits taking photos under the skirt or splitting women in public places

July 3, 2020

The German Bundestag passed a law on Friday that makes it a crime to take pictures under a woman’s skirt or cleavage in public places and to photograph people who died in an accident.

So far, none of these practices has been considered a criminal offense, as only living victims were protected from taking pictures in the event of an accident. The approved reform now provides fines and fines of up to two years in prison.

German Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht emphasized that photographing certain parts of a woman’s body violates her privacy while at the same time preventing the “additional suffering” that the spread of photos can bring to the families of victims. from their deceased relatives.
