Sex-for-grades case: Prof's application for answers dismissed by Appeals Court
Published on Nov 28, 2012 12:27 PM
The Court of Appeal on Wednesday dismissed the application of law professor Tey Tsun Hang, who had wanted four questions of law heard before the sex-for-grades case goes to trial.
The court also ordered Tey to pay $1,500 to Alexandra Hospital, for the latter's presence in the day's proceedings.
The hospital's lawyer argued that their client had already released all necessary documents prior to the session today, and their presence was therefore 'unjustified'.
Tey, 41, faces six charges of obtaining sex and gifts in 2010 from his former student Darinne Ko Wen Hui, now 23, in exchange for better grades.
The questions of law have to do with his requests for documents from the public prosecutor, the National University of Singapore and Alexandra Hospital.
Tey had earlier made similar requests for documents - from the prosecutor and NUS - to the High Court, but these were dismissed by Justice Quentin Loh in late September.
