NUS has demanded that Jeanne removes her post (which she has done) or else they’ll enforce their legal rights against her.
Pls take a moment to read Jeanne’s blog and make a difference to support her.
I’ve known Jeanne from many years ago and she is a trust-worthy person.
Thank you for your kind attention and support. ❤️
A Singaporean who has been embroiled in a dispute over a wrongful denial of her MA degree with National University of Singapore for over 12 years, is calling for support to raise funds to continue her legal battle.
Jeanne Ten is claiming that her MA degree was denied by the university after refusing to bow down to demands to accept the university’s decisions regarding her complaint against her MA supervisor.
In her complaint to NUS, she claims that her supervisor made use of her scholarly work to apply for funding for his own project and did not credit her in the project. This was backed in a finding by a commission of inquiry organised by the NUS.
Ten wrote, “This lawsuit is not just about Dr Wong’s failures as a supervisor or his professional enrichment through using my MA thesis. Most importantly, it is about the wrongful termination of my MA candidature by NUS. The termination of my candidature has affected my life. NUS failed to observe due process in investigating my complaint against Dr Wong, and penalised me for my refusal to accept the NUS’ dubious investigation.”
“Not only has NUS tried to strike out my case a number of times, NUS had also tried to make me a bankrupt by issuing me a “statutory demand” under The Bankruptcy Act (dated 3 May 2016) to pay the cost orders in the interim applications that I had lost to NUS.
I do not want to drop this matter because I believe that justice should be served. And I think Singaporeans will not allow such an injustice to happen. I hope that my 12-year battle with NUS will make it to Court. I’m asking Singaporeans to stand behind a fellow Singaporean, and crowdfund justice. It is truly unfortunate that I have to raise $11,000 just for the Court hearing fees and at such short notice. NUS has used its own power to bully me and is able to use the legal system to its advantage as a result of the unequal access to resources.”
