众筹两万元担保金 田柳金诉讼入禀上诉庭

曾卷入与国大诉讼持久战的田柳金(Jeanne-Marie Ten 译音),近期有意再入禀上诉庭,上诉此前高庭对其诉讼的判决。但首先她必须先支付高达两万元的担保金(security for costs)。 她目前正在网络平台发起众筹,向网民解释其诉讼来龙去脉,并吁请网民支持。她说,她必须在本月22日筹到两万元,并在26日提呈上诉通知,否则诉讼将不受理。 “据我所知,不论是英国还是马来西亚法庭,都没有所谓提成担保金的要求,但遗憾的是,这就是新加坡当前的处境。”她也非议如果在上诉陈情前还有先支付一笔费用,那么法律中保障国人有上诉的权益之意义何在? 2018年7月,高庭驳回田柳金起诉国大疏忽、违反合约、滥用职权及威胁的官司,指田没足够凭据证明指控。 但田柳金坚信,她有理由再把高庭裁决入禀到上诉庭,“在去年的书面判决,其实高庭也指国大也有不当之处”,但她认为尽管有大量文件证据,惟高庭并没有为她被开除和职涯被毁掉,要国大负起责任。 田柳金过去曾是国大设计与环境学院的硕士生,2002年入学。不过她指其导师于2004年利用她的学术研究成果,为一项个人学术作业申请津贴,尔后获教育部八万元津贴。但是之后导师拒绝在该报告中加入田的名字。 担心学术职涯受影响,当时田柳金也曾要求换导师,不过她指责校方站在导师一方,几经投诉都不得要领,她投诉到副教务长后,校方才召开调查委员会调查此事。 田柳金在2005年2月完成论文,但她表示数月后国大开出让田毕业的新条件:必须接受大学对于导师的处置。而田柳金的准硕士资格在2006年9月被剥夺。…
