Sex with minor scandal: Ex-teacher Chua Ren Cheng to fight case?

Posted by temasektimes on April 25, 2012

The online vice syndicate case took another twist today with former teacher and grassroots leader Chua Ren Cheng seen in court this morning with a lawyer.

Chua has earlier indicated that he would plead guilty to the charges and the presence of a lawyer by his side suggests that he may have decided to fight the case.

Besides Chua, the former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong is also charged with having sex with the same underage prostitute. Lee has already pleaded guilty to the charges to ‘atone’ for his mistakes.

A high-flying MOE scholar and teacher at River Valley High School before he tendered his resignation, Chua Ren Cheng is also the Chairman of Taman Jurong Youth Executive Committee. He was also the former Head of Scholarship planning and policy at the Ministry of Education in charge of selection and placement of MOE scholar.

Chua was charged with paying $750 to have sex with the underage prostitute on two separate occasions.

When Chua made the appearance in court last week, he was covered from top to bottom to hide his identity. He did not bother to do so today and even smile to pose for the media.

Underage prostitute to testify in court against ex-clients where she will be questioned by defence lawyers

Posted by temasektimes on April 20, 2012

The underage prostitute will be called upon to testify in court soon against her ex-clients, the majority of whom have chosen to claim trial.

Up to 48 men have been charged this week for having commercial sex with her when she was 17 years old. They include 9 civil servants, a senior banker, a company director, a senior vice-president of a private company, lawyers, a senior police officer, the former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong and prominent grassroots leader and high-ranking MOE official Chua Ren Cheng. Their ages range from between 21 to 48 years old.

Only two of them have pleaded guilty to the charges so far – former teachers Lee Lip Hong and Chua Ren Cheng. The third batch of men expected to be charged next week include finance professionals, lawyers and a high-ranking SAF officer.

According to a lawyer who spoke to the media, as a witness for the prosecution, the underage prostitute is expected to be questioned in detail by the defence lawyers which include prominent criminal lawyer Subhas Anandan.

Mr Anandan has earlier condemned her as a ‘hardcore prostitute’ who deserves no protection by the law. The prosecution has obtained a gag order from the Court to prevent the media and members of the public from publishing any information which may expose the identity of the girl.

Under Section 376B (1) of the Penal Code, it is against the law to have commercial sex with a person below 18 years of age which includes oral sex.

Chua Ren Cheng rumored to patronize freelance prostitutes frequently with two other teachers

Posted by temasektimes on April 19, 2012

According to report by a local Chinese tabloid yesterday, prominent grassroots leader and former teacher Chua Ren Cheng used to patronize freelance prostitutes frequently with two other teachers!

The report claimed to have receive the tip-off from an anonymous reader who also alleged that one of the teachers in the gang was among the first batch of 44 men charged on Monday for having commercial sex with an underage prostitute.

The former principal of Pei Chun Public School Lee Lip Hong was charged earlier for having sex with the same prostitute and he has pleaded guilty to the charge.

Chua allegedly had several ‘outings’ with the two teachers patronizing prostitutes at hotels or in their own apartments. One of them would usually foot the bill first which sometimes amounted to more than $2,000!

The third unknown teacher was not implicated in the present scandal as he did not have sex with the underage prostitute.

A former teacher at River Valley High School, Chua was also the Head of Department of Scholarship policy and placement at the Ministry of Education. He was also the Chairman of Taman Jurong Youth Executive Committee.

Disgraced teacher Chua Ren Cheng was a Head of Department in charge of selecting MOE scholars at the Ministry

Posted by temasektimes on April 19, 2012

One of the four men charged for having commercial sex with an underage prostitute on Tuesday is a 33 year old teacher Chua Ren Cheng who once worked as a high-ranking official in the Ministry of Education.

Chua was a MOE scholar who obtained his Masters in ‘Radiation Physics’ from University College in London, United Kingdom after which he was sent to teach in Jurong Junior College.

After leaving Jurong Junior College in 2006, he was  posted to the Ministry of Education as its Head of Placement and Scholarships Policy before joining River Valley High School where he taught Physics and was placed in charge of its ‘leadership development’ department:

Though the Ministry of Education has removed all traces of Chua Ren Cheng from its website and directories, a post left by Chua himself on a website for private tutors remains:

“Relevant Experience / Teaching Style: Taught in a JC since 2006, now posted to MOE HQ as Head, Placement and Scholarships Policy.”

Colleagues of Chua who worked in the same department as him has also confirmed to us that he has been working together with them. The department is in charge of important tasks at the national level such as the drafting of policies for MOE scholarships, selection of scholars and their placements upon graduation.

This effectively means that Chua Ren Sheng has been placed in charge of the selection and ‘nurturing’ of MOE scholars for the last five years before his abrupt resignation this year.

Besides holding such a high and important post in the Ministry of Education, Chua is also a grassroots leader in the People’s Association, holding the position of Chairman of Taman Jurong Youth Executive Committee:

In the last few years, a few MOE scholars have their scholarships or contracts terminated prematurely due to sex-related offences, one of them being Jonathan Wong who was charged for possessing child porn in the United Kingdom last year.

Education Minister Heng Swee Kiat has earlier said it is important not to let “one or two incidents” tarnish the image of the teaching profession, because there are many good teachers around.

He added that there would be a couple of black sheep from time to time in spite of efforts to maintain professional standards.

From the media reports below, it appears that it’s not just ‘one or two incidents’, but a dozen of them at least with Chua being the most senior educator to be charged for sex-related offences.

Will the Ministry of Education please explain why and how Chua Ren Cheng was given such an important post in the ministry at a tender age of only 28?
