NUS Law Prof charged with obtaining sexual favors from student Darinne Ko Wen Hui
Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012
National University of Singapore (NUS) associate professor from the Law Faculty Tey Tsun Hang has been charged in court over the sex-for-grades case this morning.
The 41 year old faces six corruption charges for allegedly showing favour to his student, Darinne Ko Wen Hui (pic below), between May 2010 and July 2010.
According to court documents obtained by the media, Tey reportedly gave Darinne better grades in return for sex on two occasions.
Tey also received a Mont Blanc pen worth S$740 and tailor-made shirts from Darinne who paid one of Tey’s bills amounting to almost S$1,300.
Despite Darinne being the one who approached Tey to offer sex in exchange for better grades, she has not been charged for any offences yet.
The 23 year old is currently working as a pupil in an established local law firm, thanks to the ‘A’ grade she obtained in her final year elective in exchange for the sexual services she provided to her law professor who now faces the unsavory prospect of being thrown into jail.
In an email sent out to the media on Friday morning, Tey said he stands by his academic principles and that he has always pursued his academic writing in good faith, with no ill intent.
