Sex blogger Alvin Tan apologises to NUS
By YEE XIANG YUN
SINGAPORE: Sex blogger Alvin Tan apologised to the National University of Singapore (NUS) for bringing "disrepute" to the university.
The Straits Times quoted him as telling the NUS disciplinary board that while he was sorry for bringing disrepute to the institution, what he did was done in his “own personal time as a private individual and not an NUS student.”
“What I did was a victimless crime,” the Straits Times website quoted him as saying. “Nobody was really harmed or hurt in the process.”
Tan, 24, emerged from the NUS' University Hall at about 3.50pm on Wednesday after a 90-minute disciplinary hearing.
He looked calm and openly spoke to the media who greeted him.
Tan said that there was no outcome yet from the hearing, which was conducted by five members of the university's board.
"They told me I will hear from them within seven days. The atmosphere at the hearing was serious," he said.
Earlier, the law student arrived at NUS at about 2.20pm without his girlfriend, Vivian Lee, 23.
Tan, an Asean scholarship holder, was casually clad in a red shirt, jeans and a colourful beanie which he wore in one of his videos.
