AGC: No ‘link’ between Prof Tey’s charges and his academic writings critical of Singapore’s legal system

Posted by temasektimes on July 28, 2012

The Attorney-General Chambers has strenuously denied any links between the corruption charges slapped on NUS Law Professor Tey Tsun Hang (pic left).

The 41 year old faces six corruption charges for allegedly showing favour to his student, Darinne Ko Wen Hui in exchange for sex between May 2010 and July 2010.

Speaking to the media outside the Subordinate Courts yesterday, Tey declared that he would defend himself against the charges “fearlessly and vigorously.”

He also tried to portray himself as a ‘critic’ of the Singapore legal system though he is hardly as well known as M Ravi, Singapore’s foremost prominent human rights lawyer:

“I am known to speak up, amongst other things on the Singapore legal system. My academic writings are in good faith with no ill intent,” he said.

Tey published several books on the Singapore legal system, the latest being “Legal Consensus: Supreme Executive, Supine Jurisprudence, Suppliant Profession of Singapore” that was published in September by the University of Hong Kong’s Centre for Comparative and Public Law.

In response to queries by Bloomberg, the AGC said:

“There is no link between these charges and Mr. Tey’s academic publications and writing.”

    How silly for AGC to reply. Would a criminal or offender admits upfront?
    If they were not guilty why the need to defend?

    The news have gone international if Bloomberg starts making enquiries.

    “There is no link between these charges and Mr. Tey’s academic publications and writing.”

    At this juncture, it is absolutely unnecessary for AGC to clarify and reply to Prof Tey’s allegations.
    Let justice take its course and hard truths will prevail.
