Trial dates set for professor in sex-for-grades case

SINGAPORE - Trial dates for the law professor allegedly involved in the sex-for-grades case have been confirmed Thursday, Sept 12.

At the second pre-trial conference, Tey Tsun Hang's lawyer Peter Low said the trial will be from Oct 15-25, reported The Straits Times.

Mr Low said he has filed two criminal motions which will be heard on Sept 24 at the High Court. One is against the National University of Singapore to seek the students' grades, and the other is against the public prosecutor to seek 'critical witness statements'.

Tey faces six counts of corruptly obtaining gratification in 2010 from student Darinne Ko Wen Hu in exchange for good grades.
