Abstract

The Straits Times reported last Wednesday that in a divorce case currently before the court, the husband alleged that the wife had an improper relationship with one of her students when he was 16 ('Wife had affair with ex-student, claims man'). ... The Straits Times did not name the divorcing couple... Neither did it name the former student. However, his identity was disclosed in news reports on MediaCorp Channel 5 and Channel NewsAsia the previous evening. ... [T]he former student's children deserve as much protection as the couple's. In this respect, the current law appears to be deficient.
