Tey 'depraved' and had 'ulterior motive'

He was untruthful, two-faced, and his conduct was depraved.

That was how Chief District Judge Tan Siong Thye described National University of Singapore (NUS) law professor Tey Tsun Hang, 42, before convicting him on six counts of corruption.

In a strongly-worded judgment which took 31/2 hours to deliver, the judge said that there was "overwhelming evidence" that Tey had taken undue advantage of his former student, Ms Darrine Ko, 23.

Tey had been charged last July with six counts of corruptly obtaining gifts and sex from Ms Ko in exchange for better grades.

In the judgment spanning more than 100 pages, the judge noted that Tey had illustrious achievements that overwhelmed Ms Ko, who was "impressionable".
