Date: 04 March 2013 SINGAPORE: A former teacher has pleaded guilty to having consensual sex with her former student. The 32-year-old woman, who cannot be named, admitted that she had consensual sex with the boy twice, when he was 13 years old. The first offence was committed in Sembawang Park in May 2011, while the second was committed at her home in July 2011. At the time of the offences, the woman was 31 years old. Court documents showed that the two met when she was teaching in Primary 6. The boy, a repeat student, would tell the teacher about his schoolmates who were smoking outside of school. She bought him a bottle of perfume as a reward. They grew closer and started dating. This continued until the accused turned herself in after the school principal asked her to write a report defining her relationship with the boy. The ex-teacher faces a jail term of up to 10 years and a fine for having sex with a minor.- CNA

A SINGAPOREAN undergraduate was gang-raped last month while on an exchange programme in Hong Kong, Hong Kong newspaper Sing Tao Daily reported on Sunday.
The Hong Kong police have arrested a man in connection with the crime, and are looking for two others who are believed to have been involved.
The woman, 22, had gone alone to a bar in Lan Kwai Fong, an area in the Central district with many bars and restaurants, and had become drunk.
Three Nepalese men who worked in the bar - two of whom are believed to be brothers - approached her and invited her to a party on a yacht.
She accepted their invitation, and they took her to a yacht in the Causeway Bay area, where they took turns to rape her, for a total of six times. The men had left by the time she woke up the following morning. She made a police report, and was taken to hospital for an examination.
Police in Hong Kong have classified the case as rape, the newspaper said. Police identified the three men, after visiting the bar and the yacht and reviewing the bar's closed-circuit television footage, and arrested one of the men near Lan Kwai Fong. -- MY PAPER - July 6, 2010

BRUSSELS - THE company that oversees Web addresses is expected to give the go-ahead on Friday for the creation of a .xxx suffix for websites with pornographic content, company officials indicated on Thursday.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which oversees the Internet on behalf of the US government, has in the past resisted creating a .xxx generic domain name system akin to those for .com and .net.
It has in recent years repeatedly rejected a request by US company ICM Registry Inc. to sign off on the .xxx domain.
But members of ICANN's board have argued that in order to maintain neutrality in dealing with domain name assignations, it should create .xxx and allow websites with sexually explicit content to start using the suffix on a voluntary basis.
'If expedited due diligence results are successful, then staff will proceed into contract negotiations with ICM (over .xxx),' ICANN's general counsel John Jeffrey told delegates at a week-long ICANN meeting in Brussels on Thursday.
Online pornography is a vast industry. Figures collated by Internet Pornography Statistics suggest more than US$3,000 (S$4,175) is spent on Internet pornography every second, with 'sex' the number one search term in the world, accounting for 25 per cent of all Internet searches. -- REUTERS
