NUS takes disciplinary action against sex blogger (but puts a gag on what that action is... if there's one to be believed in the first place!)
Tan Jye Ee (left), now has every reason to smile, knowing that he has paid his dues to NUS, whatever or "whatnever" that due may be.
The National University of Singapore (NUS) has meted out disciplinary action against a law student who posted offensive material online.
Alvin Tan Jye Yee posted explicit videos and pictures of himself and his girlfriend on his blog in October, which eventually found its way into local news headlines.
The NUS Board of Discipline had "concluded that Alvin’s inappropriate conduct was detrimental to the reputation and dignity of the university".
He has been notified of the decision.
NUS did not specify the nature of the action, when contacted by Channel NewsAsia.
A spokesperson said all matters relating to NUS disciplinary proceedings are confidential.
So why the gag? Afraid to let everyone know that the disciplinary action falls way below what the crime calls for?
This does not bode well for NUS. It could well be an open invitation to more such scholars who think they can get off lightly doing what Tan did. Shouldn't NUS be transparent?
