SINGAPORE: Education Minister Heng Swee Keat has described the behaviour of sex blogger Alvin Tan as "reprehensible and unbecoming of a scholar".

He was responding to questions in Parliament on Monday from MPs concerned about how Asean scholarships are awarded. Mr Tan is an Asean scholarship holder studying at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Law School.

Last week, the school announced that it had decided on the punishment for Mr Tan but it could not reveal details as disciplinary proceedings were private.

That privacy drew much scrutiny in Parliament as four MPs stood to ask if the Education Ministry would be asking the school to make public the punishment that it has decided on. ANN/The Straits Times
