Singapore: A student of the University of Singapore (NUS), who photographed children in the bathroom in 2015, was indicted.

In a statement on Tuesday (April 30), police in the Singapore police said the man had been tried first, but these charges were overturned under the guidance of the State Prosecutor's Office.

In an earlier story, CNA reported on a document detailing offenses by the University Disciplinary Board, including a case of a student who received a 24-month conditional warning after "having children in the next cell on many occasions."

According to the documents, the incidents took place during the academic year of 2015/6, but did not specify explicitly where the offenses were committed.

Police announced on Tuesday that the offenses occurred at the Mall Services and not on the premises NUS.

"The defendant was charged in court for four counts of abuse and modesty of one woman and a count of criminal trespassing," the police said.

"The attorney general finally ordered the police to cancel the charges, and the defendants received treatment from the mental health center (IMH).

The Penal Code specifies a woman as a female of any age.

"His doctors reported his condition, and they estimated among other things that he needed psychological treatment and that he should continue his treatment, and that his imprisonment would not help," the police added.

"The fact that the defendant had no prejudicial history in advance was also considered."

Some of the cases discovered in the documents – first published on Facebook after they were received through a student portal – were involved in pictures and photographs of students and students in shower and sex videos. In other incidents, lesions touched the hips or buttocks of students.

Under the spotlight

NUS's treatment of sexual misconduct is under the spotlight after a graduate student took Monica Bay to Vietnam to call for tougher action against a student who took her in the shower.

Her offender, a 23-year-old man, received a 12-month conditional notice by the police.

After a disciplinary proceeding by NUS, her offender was suspended from university for one semester and was banned from entering any campus housing discounts. He was also ordered to attend compulsory consultation sessions, to perform 30 hours of community service and to write a letter of apology.

But Ms. Bay called for "real action" against him, explaining that she was "seriously troubled" and that her mental health had suffered badly.

Shortly after the incident, Education Minister Ong Ye Kung said the penalties set by NUS were "manifestly inappropriate."

NUS president Tan Anqing apologized last week to university graduates for handling the case and said the school was sorry that Bay had to disclose its concern about social media so that the university would pay attention to it. He also said NUS "fell short" in giving her support in the first place.

The University also convened a committee to examine its current disciplinary and support frameworks.
