Sex blogger Alvin Tan told of university's disciplinary actions


The National University of Singapore has decided on the disciplinary actions to be taken against law scholar Alvin Tan Jye Yee, 24, who stirred controversy for posting sexually explicit photos and videos of himself and his girlfriend on his private blog.

An NUS spokesman said in its statement that the university's board of discipline had concluded that Mr Tan's "inappropriate conduct was detrimental to the reputation and dignity of the university".

The university has informed Mr Tan of the board's decision. Matters relating to the school's disciplinary proceedings are confidential, said its spokesman.

Mr Tan met the university's disciplinary inquiry board on Oct 31. The Malaysian told the media after the meeting that he had apologised "for bringing disrepute to the school", though he maintained that he had created the sex blog during "his own personal time as a private individual and not an NUS student".
