SINGAPORE: The National University of Singapore (NUS) law professor linked to a sex—for—grades scandal has applied to the Court of Appeal to have his questions on disclosure of documents heard in the High Court.
This comes after Justice Quentin Loh dismissed Tey Tsun Hang’s motion to obtain information from NUS and the prosecution on September 25.
Tey, 41, faces six charges for corruption — allegedly in showing favour to his student, Ms Darinne Ko Wen Hui, between May 2010 and July 2010.
Tey filed the criminal motion on Friday through his lawyers.
Tey’s lawyer, Mr Peter Low, told reporters after a pre—trial conference that Tey wanted the Court of Appeal to hear four questions of public interest.
He said the questions involved the disclosure of documents by the prosecution, NUS and Alexandra Hospital, where Tey is a patient.
Tey was rushed to the hospital within 12 hours of his arrest in April.
The Court of Appeal is set to consider Tey’s motion in the week starting November 26.
Meanwhile, Mr Low said Tey’s trial dates have been tentatively set between January 9 and 22 next year.
Another pre—trial conference will be held on December 5 this year.
