Instead of star witness Darinne Ko returning to the witness stand to give evidence, the first hours of the sex-for-grades trial on Friday were spent dealing with an application by law professor Tey Tsun Hang.

Tey, who is facing six charges of corruptly obtaining gifts and sex from Ms Ko in exchange for better grades, had asked the court for access to documents he had previously sought for last year.

These include documents containing the academic grades of former National University of Singapore (NUS) students, including that of Ms Ko and statements by NUS staff who are involved in the ongoing trial.

Tey, 41, had made a request for information from the university in court last August, but was told by the judge then that it was a premature application.
