Tey 'may petition for reinstatement'

Following Mr Tey Tsun Hang's acquittal, a National University of Singapore (NUS) spokesman said he "may choose to petition for reinstatement", but would "remain liable for any acts contrary to the NUS Staff Code of Conduct".

After being suspended on full pay for 10 months since June 2012, the former law professor was sacked after being convicted of six corruption charges last June.

"In the event that he does seek to return to NUS, the university would first appoint its own Committee of Inquiry to determine whether Mr Tey is guilty of any misconduct and, if so, what sanctions are warranted," the NUS spokesman added.
