Former law professor Tey Tsun Hang is a free man.
The 42-year-old reported to the Selarang Park Community Supervision Centre on Saturday morning to have his electronic tag removed. This after serving the last few weeks of a five-month jail term on home detention.
He did not speak to the media that was camped outside the centre but later told The Straits Times as he was leaving in a taxi that he was still not allowed to comment because he "was told (by the prison authorities) that if I did, I may get re-arrested".
Mr Tey's personal fight for his innocence is not over yet. His appeal against his conviction for six counts of corruptly obtaining gifts and sex from former student Darinne Ko will be heard in about two weeks time.
