NUS law prof wants prosecution to give information on ex—students’ results

SINGAPORE: The National University of Singapore (NUS) law professor on trial for corruption in a sex—for—grades case has asked the prosecution to provide information on the results of a few former students.

Tey Tsun Hang, 41, made the request on Friday.

He’s accused of obtaining gratification in the form of gifts and sex from his former student, Darinne Ko Wen Hui, 23, between May and July 2010.

The gifts include tailor—made shirts, an iPod touch and a Montblanc pen.

The prosecution said these were inducements to show favour in his assessment of Ms Ko’s academic performance.

Minutes into the second day of the trial, Tey said he filed a criminal motion in the High Court in August last year to ask for information from NUS on the grades of Ms Ko and four other students.

The four students were called up by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau during investigations.

Tey had requested for information on the students’ grades to support his assertion that false confessions were extracted from him.

Chief District Judge Tan Siong Thye has ordered the prosecution and defence to sort out issue before continuing with the examination of Ms Ko.

Tey, a former district judge, faces six counts of corruption.
