SINGAPORE: An ASEAN scholar at the National University of Singapore (NUS) said the university had summoned him to a disciplinary hearing on October 31.
Mr Alvin Tan, who is from Malaysia, reportedly told this to the media.
The NUS had earlier served a notice of Board of Discipline (BOD) inquiry to Mr Tan for posting sexually explicit videos and photos of himself and his girlfriend on their blog.
While the blog has been deactivated, Mr Tan and his girlfriend have released a new video on YouTube on October 17, maintaining their stance.
"What do we have to apologise for? For hurting your soft sensitive feelings? For what? For I don’t know, breaching some moral code that you hold dearly to yourself but I don’t necessarily hold them myself? So we will not make a public apology," he said.
Meanwhile, Malaysian authorities are still deciding on whether or not to take action against Mr Tan.
News of his blog has now been circulating in Malaysia.
Mr Rais Yatim, Malaysia’s Minister for Information, Communication and Culture, said: "Jurisdictionally, this case originates from Singapore, therefore we would rather wait for the proper authorities in Singapore to pursue it. As far as we are concerned, the website has not been accessible of late, and therefore there is no real commotion or real problem arising from legal premise or other premises."
