Former law professor Tey Tsun Hang has been ordered to pay the Attorney-General’s Chambers S$14,000. This is to cover costs for legal fees and related expenses incurred in his failed bid to retain his permanent residency status.
Mr Tey, a Malaysian, lost his PR status after he left Singapore in October 2013 without a valid re-entry permit.
The former National University of Singapore lecturer had been charged with having sex with a student and accepting gifts from her in exchange for better grades. In February last year, he was acquitted of the corruption charges after an appeal.
