Professor in sex-for-grades case files 2 more motions

Published on Sep 24, 2012 6:00 AM

THE law professor in a sex-for- grades case has requested more information to build his defence, even as his case is heard in court on Monday.

Tey Tsun Hang, 41, has filed two more criminal motions - one more against the public prosecutor and one against Alexandra Hospital. His lawyer Peter Low told The Straits Times these were filed on Sept 17, a few weeks after the first two motions were filed.

Those two motions were to request information from the National University of Singapore (NUS), where Tey is employed, and the public prosecutor.

Mr Low declined to specify what the motions are about, but said they are with regard to documents requested by the defence, but which they have not received. Criminal motions enable accused persons with complaints to have their arguments heard in court. Tey's motions will be heard at the Supreme Court today.
