NUS Student Nicholas Lim Allegedly Apologized For Sexual Misconduct, Prepared To Face Consequences

A contact of Nicholas Lim had posted a statement on behalf of him regarding the NUS saga. Lim was slammed by Singaporeans for being let off easily by NUS after filming a female student in the shower. The statement wrote that he was sorry for causing distress and will face the consequences. He is ashamed of himself but hoped that Monica will find closure. He was also thick-skinned enough to encourage victims of sexual harassment to speak up. What do you think? Will you forgive him?

Education Minister Ong Ye Kung Told NUS To Take Tougher Stand, No More 2nd Chance For Students With Sexual Misconduct

Education Minister Ong Ye Kung has spoken up about the NUS controversy. He told the NUS President and Board Chairman to take a tough stand on issues that threaten students' safety. Its existing two strikes and you are gone method is too lenient when it comes to dealing with people who are charged with sexual misconduct. Other tertiary institutions will be reviewing their framework to put a stop to this unacceptable behaviour. Why does it have to take so much and so long for some justice to come to light?

NUS Allegedly Told Student To Keep Quiet About Pervert Who Filmed Her Shower

NUS is under fire after an undergrad accused it of letting a perverted man off leniently. The man was caught for recording her in the school's shower but let off after a 12 month conditional warning. From her social media post, the school told her to keep quiet after getting the man to write her an apology letter. She is disgraced that NUS wanted to keep things hush hush and is rallying support for people to voice out against these injustices. If these perverts are let off so easily, who can say for sure that they will not commit the same offence again?

LGBT NETWORK: SG UNIVERSITIES NOT LGBT FRIENDLY ENOUGH

Singapore's universities have become more Lesbian Gay Bi and Transgender (LGBT) friendly, but they are still far from ideal, says a commentator on LGBT rights in Singapore. With the failure of LGBT groups to abolish Section 377A of the Penal Code, which criminalizes sexual intercourse between men and government restrictions on foreign corporate funding for Pink Dot, LGBT activists face an uphill battle.
