Trial date for NUS professor at centre of sex-for-grades scandal pushed back
The trial date for the law lecturer at the centre of a sex-for-grades scandal, has been pushed back by at least two months.
This follows a criminal motion filed by Tey Tsun Hang's lawyers who said they needed time for preparation.
Tey, a National University of Singapore lecturer, faces six corruption charges for allegedly showing favour to his former student, Darinne Ko Wen Hui, between May and July 2010.
Today, the court ordered that Tey's trial will now take place after mid-December.
But the judge dismissed two other criminal motions filed by Tey's lawyers - which are to obtain information from NUS, and the prosecution.
