NUS Law Professor in sex-for-grades case to go on trial in October
National University of Singapore (NUS) Law professor Tey Tsun Hang, who is at the centre of the sex-for-grades case, will go on trial next month.
Speaking to the media outside the Subordinate Courts this afternoon, Tey said his case is slated to be heard next month from 15th till 25th.
The former district judge faces six corruption charges for allegedly showing favour to his student, Darinne Ko Wen Hui, between May 2010 and July 2010.
Tey allegedly gave Ms Ko better grades in return for sex and gifts.
The 41-year-old said his lawyers are still waiting for medical records from Alexandra Hospital, witness statements, among other things.
Accompanied by his lawyer, Peter Low, Tey told reporters that the prosecution had again pressed for early trial dates.
But Mr Low had told the court that defence cannot be ready if an early trial is fixed.
In a turn of events, Tey said he is taking legal action against his employer NUS and the public prosecutor.
He has filed two criminal motions, which will be heard at the High Court on 24 September.
Tey did not elaborate on this.
NUS said Tey has been suspended from his duties.
A pre-trial conference has been fixed on October 1 before the trial begins.
