S'porean student in China spills all about affair with lecturer

SINGAPORE - A Singaporean post-graduate student at the prestigious Peking University in China has claimed that she fell for her lecturer even after he forced himself on her last year.

But her love turned to disdain when she discovered wedding photos at his house and realised that he was married.

He was an associate professor at the School of International Studies in the university and they dated for more than a year.

After their affair became public, her lover, Professor Yu Wanli, was sacked by the university for his "improper sexual relationship with a female student", according to a release on the Peking University website on Saturday.

The 32-year-old woman, using the pseudonym Wang Jing, has since spoken up about their affair, which she said involved bondage.

She also claimed that Prof Yu was into swinging and one-night stands.

Miss Wang said she was heartbroken after he told her to get an abortion when she said she was pregnant with his child earlier this month.

She told Chinese newspaper Beijing Youth Daily: "I want him to be fired. A person like him could cheat more girls with his position at the university. He is not fit to be a teacher."

Miss Wang came to Singapore from China when she was 12 and studied in a top secondary school, reported Lianhe Wanbao yesterday.

After completing her A levels, she received several scholarship offers and chose to pursue her undergraduate studies at Peking University in 2004.

She began her doctoral programme in international relations last year and first met Prof Yu during a course on US diplomatic studies which he was teaching.

Dinner dates

Miss Wang said she slowly fell for her professor after he started asking her out on dinner dates and constantly texted her to show his affections.

When the course ended in July last year, Prof Yu invited her to a seminar and met her in her dormitory.

He forced himself on her that day, she claimed.

"I was resisting him constantly during the whole process," Miss Wang said in a previous interview.

She also told Chinese newspaper Hua Shang News: "I didn't know he was married because he looked young and was always hanging out with many other girls.

"After we had sex, I was moved by his sweet talk and believed he loved me."
