NUS Law Prof Tey Hsun Hang involved in sex scandal with law student was married to a Japanese woman
Posted by temasektimes on July 26, 2012
According to media reports, Prof Tey is married to a Japanese woman and they have a teenage daughter.
Faculty members said Prof Tey has not been suspended and he will be on sabbatical when the academic year starts next month, stressing that it is not a result of the ongoing investigation by CPIB.
Prof Tey was arrested in April this year and is currently out on bail. It is understood that it was the law student who offered her body to him so that she could obtain an ‘A’ for her final year elective. She is currently a pupil at a local law firm.
Though it was the girl who initiated the ‘deal’, her identity is kept under wraps by the media while the Professor was publicly shamed as if the fault lies with him alone.
An NUS spokesman said the university has a code of conduct that its staff must adhere to; the consequences of violating it range from a warning to dismissal.
