National University of Singapore (NUS) law professor Tey Tsun Hang was on Friday charged with six counts of corruptly obtaining gratification from former student, Darinne Ko Wen Hui.
These came in the form of two charges of sexual gratification, and items in the form of a Mont Blanc pen worth $740, two tailor made shirts worth $236.20, an iPod touch and a bill payment worth $1,278.60.
In court papers, these were said to be an inducement for showing favour in his assessment of Miss Ko's academic performance.
The Straits Times understands that he was arrested in April this year by officers from the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB), who were acting on a tip-off. The former student, believed to be interning at a law firm overseas, was questioned by CPIB officers but was not arrested.
The former student was said to have approached him for help in scoring a better grade for an elective course he taught, and supposedly struck a deal to have sex with him.
Speaking outside the court, Tey told reporters that the charges against him were very serious. 'At stake is my liberty, integrity and livelihood. My reputation has been tarnished, and my family suffers as a result,' he said.
