MOE refused to take action against Northland Secondary School principal Leonard Koh
Posted by temasektimes on June 23, 2012
Despite the massive public outcry at the conduct of Northland Secondary School principal Leonard Koh who was accused of ‘stalking’ his ex-students on Facebook, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has refused to even investigate the matter, let alone take action against him.
Koh was noted to have posted comments on the photos of his ex-students praising them as ‘nice’, ‘pretty’, and ‘womanly’ as well as asking to meet some of them in person.
The Temasek Times has received a snapshot of his ‘interaction’ with more than 100 girls on Facebook:
Speaking to queries from the media, a MOE spokesperson said that as Koh did not behave ‘inappropriately’ towards his ex-students, no action will be taken against him.
The latest controversy comes in the aftermath of the shocking underage prostitute sex scandal which saw a former principal Lee Lip Hong and former senior MOE official Chua Ren Cheng being charged for having paid sex with a 17 year old girl.
Lee Lip Hong was convicted and sentenced to 9 weeks’ imprisonment while Chua is still awaiting trial.
