SINGAPORE: The NUS law professor defending himself in the sex—for—grades corruption trial kept saying "it’s so shameful" on the day he was picked up by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) last year.

CPIB officer, Mr Michael Oh, told the court on Monday that Tey Tsun Hang, with his head hung low, was sobbing in the interview room on 2 April 2012.

Mr Oh, the prosecution’s 9th witness, also gave an account of the events leading to Tey’s hospitalisation the same day.

When it was Tey’s turn to cross—examine the witness, Tey said he had no questions.

He told the court that 2nd of April was too traumatising and that he did not recognise the witness.

He did the same thing for the prosecution’s 10th witness, Mr Raymond Wee, who is also a CPIB officer.

The prosecution’s 11th witness, CPIB investigator Thomas Cheo, also gave his account of his interaction with Tey during the investigation.

The prosecution’s 12th witness was Hasvind Elangovan of the anti—graft bureau.

The bureau’s deputy director, Teng Khee Fatt, will be testifying in the afternoon.

Tey, 41, faces allegations of obtaining gratification in the form of gifts and sex from former student Darinne Ko, in return for giving her better grades between May and July 2010.
