A Singaporean started a protest at the Singapore Embassy in the USA about Lily Kong’s alleged Perjury. She uploaded a picture of it onto Facebook.
What is this about?
Jeanne Ten has apparently been in a legal battle with NUS since 2005. She has a blog detailing the whole journey. She was admitted to a Master of Arts (“MA”) degree programme in Architecture at NUS in 2002.
However, her supervisor Dr Wong Yunn Chii used Jeanne’s thesis to generate a project and passed it off as his own. When she tried to complain to NUS, she was expelled in 2006.
“In September 2006, NUS expelled me from the university after refusing to confer me my Master of Arts Degree in retaliation for my whistle-blowing about misconduct by a professor at NUS, and my whistle-blowing about the subsequent cover-up. As a result of this expulsion by NUS, I had to leave a PhD course that I had already started in the United States”.Jeanne Ten
According to The Independent SG, she sued NUS and made 4 legal claims against them. They were tort of misfeasance in public office, breach of contract, tort of intimidation and negligence.
Lily Kong’s Involvement
At that time, Lily Kong was NUS’ Vice Provost. Jeanne believes that Lily Kong misled her about Committee of Inquiry (COI) investigation findings regarding the supervisor Dr Wong.
“Vice Provost Lily Kong misled me (lied to me) to believe that the COI had exonerated him, when in fact the COI had recommended that NUS censure him”Jeanne Ten
Jeanne also made a police report naming Ang Siau Gek and Lily Kong. She alleged that they lied about threatening to expel her unless she dropped the complain against Dr Wong.
It has been a 17-year battle for Jeanne, hopefully the truth will prevail!
