Mohamed Zaahid Pandie, 44, who is originally from Bo-Kaap, has been suspended without pay from the Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane, following his arrest on seven counts of “observations or recordings in breach of privacy”.
He’s accused of using his cellphone to film up women’s skirts on escalators and inside clothing stores.
When asked about the allegations by Australia’s 9News, the father-of-four said he did not want to answer any questions.
It is not clear how his alleged actions were discovered.
Pandie is named as the director of the children’s emergency department at Queensland’s largest cardiothoracic hospital and allegedly made recordings of women at Westfield mall.
He was released on bail from the Brisbane Magistrate's Court last week.
Dr Pandie’s online profiles say he began his career in medicine in South Africa, before moving to Brisbane with his young family in 2001.
He is due to appear in court again at the end of the month.
He has been suspended from the hospital and, pending the outcome of his charges, could be struck off the medical register.
