Sex-for-grades case: Trial against law professor to start on Jan 10


The sex-for-grades corruption trial against law professor Tey Tsun Hang will begin on Jan 10 next year.

His lawyer, Mr Peter Low, told The Straits Times on Wednesday after a pre-trial conference, that the prosecution has lined up 10 witnesses who will testify in the hearing.

They include Tey's former student Darinne Ko Wen Hui, various retailers who sold Ms Ko the gifts she allegedly gave to Tey to boost her grades while she was a law student at the National University of Singapore, as well as officers from the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) who were part of the probe.

Tey, 41, faces six charges of having corruptly obtained gifts and sex from Ms Ko, now 23, in exchange for better grades.
