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.
