Sex-for-grades trial: Tey to call 16 witnesses for defence
Law professor Tey Tsun Hang has been allowed to call 16 witnesses for his defence when the sex-for-grades corruption trial resumes next month.
Tey, who is conducting his own defence, had initially drawn up a list of 22 people.
Still, the final number is unusually high for such criminal cases, legal experts told The Straits Times yesterday. It includes his doctors, National University of Singapore (NUS) law faculty colleagues and former students, among others.
Tey, 41, faces six charges of corruptly obtaining gifts and sex from his ex-student Darinne Ko Wen Hui, 23, in exchange for improving her grades.
