The sex-for-grades corruption trial against law professor Tey Tsun Hang resumes Monday, after an adjournment of about two months.

The associate professor from the National University of Singapore (NUS), who is conducting his own defence, is set to take the stand.

He is expected to give his account of the circumstances under which his statements to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) were made, among other things.

The 41-year old claims that CPIB officers had used heavy-handed tactics to force "confessions" out of him while he was under medication. A trial within a trial was underway before the adjournment, to determine if statements containing those confessions can be admitted as evidence.
