Germany's Bundestag has criminalized 'upskirting' - taking photos or videos of the area under a person's skirt or bustline, DW reported.

"To photograph a woman under her skirt or her bustline, is a shameless violation of her privacy," Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht said noting that such photos/videos also violate rights to sexual self-determination.

"That is why we are closing a major criminal liability gap," said legal policy spokesman for German government coalition Jan-Marco Luczak.

"We, as legislators, are taking decisive action against it," Luczak added.
