SINGAPORE: The National University of Singapore on Monday (Jun 29) terminated the appointment of Sundram Peter Soosay, the assistant law professor who was sentenced to four months jail last Friday for punching and causing hurt to a taxi driver.

NUS said 43-year-old Soosay, who has been teaching at the law faculty since 2008, was at first suspended without pay following his conviction on May 29.

“The university expects all members of its community to conduct themselves in accordance with the law. Dr Soosay has been convicted of a serious offence,” said an NUS spokesperson in response to Channel NewsAsia’s query.
Soosay's academic profile – which has been removed from NUS website – stated that he had graduated from Strathclyde University in Glasgow before going on to spend an extended period at Edinburgh University where he obtained his master’s degree and PHD.

On Christmas Day in 2013, an intoxicated Soosay had vomited in 69-year-old Sun Chuan Hua's taxi before leaving without paying the fare. Soosay then handed a S$50 note after Mr Sun chased after him and threatened to call the police.

As he was walking back to his taxi to get change, Mr Sun said Soosay struck from the back before straddling and punching him.

Mr Sun had suffered injuries to his forehead area, elbows, forearms and knees. He had to be hospitalized and needed 17 days of medical leave.

For his offence, the 43-year-old was also ordered to pay Mr Sun S$1,500 as compensation.

Soosay, who is appealing against his sentence, is currently out on S$25,000 bail.

This is not the first time that NUS has sacked one of its professors over brushes with the law. In 2013, the university dismissed former law don Tey Tsun Hang after he was found guilty of corruption. He was later cleared on appeal.
