Four more officers from the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) took the stand on Monday as the sex-for-grades corruption trial of NUS law professor Tey Tsun Hang entered its eighth day.

Unlike the previous witnesses from the bureau, however, Tey had nothing to ask CPIB officers Michael Oh, Raymond Wee, Thomas Cheo and Hasvind Elangovan.

When given the opportunity to cross-examine each of them after their initial examination by the prosecution, Tey, who is conducting his own defence, declined, saying he was unable to remember them.

He claimed that he could not recognise all the officers called in the morning as the events had been "traumatising" and his "memory was sparse".
