Straits Times cover MRT suicide videos

The leaked videos of the two men committing suicide on MRT tracks have received coverage on Straits Times today. From AsiaOne:
An SMRT spokesman confirmed that the footage is of the actual incident but added it is an 'unauthorised copy' of the original.

This means that someone who had access to the footage might have used their own camera to record the actual CCTV footage during playback.

SMRT explained that while the clip does match the original, it covers a much narrower scope.

Also the clip looks like it was taken by a shaky camera. CCTVs are mounted and original footage should be stable.

SMRT said that besides themselves, the Land Transport Authority and the police also have access to the footage.

The spokesman added that SMRT is now investigating how the leak happened and will be taking disciplinary action if the clip was lifted by its staff.
