Ex-race officer's secret sex film

Jazz Iheanacho secretly filmed himself having sex with his lover
A former race equality official has admitted secretly filming himself having sex with his mistress.

Jazz Inheanacho, 44, the former director of south Wales-based Race Equality First, rigged up a spy camera in the bedroom of his Cardiff house.

A married man, he was caught after police found tapes at his work while investigating a different complaint.

At Cardiff magistrates' court he admitted two counts of voyeurism, and will be sentenced next month.

The court heard how Iheanacho took the woman to his home in the Splott area of the city

Detectives found the tapes when they raided the headquarters of Race Equality First, where Iheanacho had worked for six years.

Prosecutor Lee Reynolds told the court: "The woman was found and saw the videos of herself, but insisted she had never consented to being filmed.

"When Iheanacho was later questioned he admitted he had secretly filmed the sex.

"He told police he made the recordings for his own sexual gratification and that he would get excited when watching them later on."

The court heard that the woman, a young widow, was "appalled" at being filmed by Iheanacho.

District judge John Charles said: "It must have been humiliating and degrading for your victim to realise she had been filmed.

"It was not dignified behaviour - these were seriously depraved actions.

"These are two particularly serious offences and I keep all options open, including custody."

Race Equality First won a top award in 1999 for its Schools United Against Racism campaign. Iheanacho was suspended from his job when he was first arrested and has since been sacked.
