The sex scandal involving a NUS Law Professor Tey Tsun Hang and his former law student Darinne Ko Wen Hui set many thinking on how the case got exposed after two long years.
Tey allegedly had sex twice with Darinne Ko in July 2010 and he was only arrested this Thursday.
According to a tip-off we received from an informant claiming to be ‘close’ to Darinne, she took her final year elective under Prof Tey and was part of the student team who helped prepare his book for publication.
Prof Tey was known to be a friendly, nice and approachable tutor and was often seen having meals together with his students, including Darinne at NUS, but nobody suspected there is any ‘hanky-panky’ going on between the duo.
Darinne apparently confided in a ‘good’ friend about the underground relationship she was having with Prof Tey as she felt uneasy about it.
Somehow the news got ‘leaked’ and CPIB came knocking on her doors before she graduated this year which led to her postponing her plans to take the Part ‘B’ of her Bar examinations.
It is believed that the same ‘friend’ has been sending anonymous emails to the media to further tarnish her reputation such as telling Yahoo News about her ‘flirtatious nature’ and the Chinese tabloids her ‘B’ grade after sleeping with Prof Tey.
Meanwhile, Darinne Ko has strenuously denied any corrupt intention or wrong-doing via her lawyer Subhas Anandan, saying that she would reveal the truth in due course.
