The woman linked to a sex-for-grades case involving a National University of Singapore (NUS) law professor was arrested in April and is currently out on bail.
According to a report in The New Paper, Darinne Ko Wen Hui, 23, was arrested at about the same time that authorities picked up law professor Tey Tsun Hang for questioning.
When contacted yesterday, Miss Ko's counsel Mr Subhas Anandan, said he was unaware that she had been arrested then, but added that she is currently out on police bail to ensure she does not leave the country. However, lawyers that The New Paper spoke to said bail would have to be post only if a person had been arrested.
Miss Ko, is alleged to have slept with NUS law professor, Tey Tsun Hang, 41, on two occasions and given him gifts such a Mont Blanc pen worth $740, two tailor-made shirts worth $236.20, and an iPod Touch. She also made a bill payment of $1,278.60. Tey was charged last friday (27th July) with six counts of inappropriately obtaining gifts and sex from Miss Ko, his former student in 2010, in exchange for favouring her in her assessment of her academic performance.
