    he approval for a talk by Hong Kong-based academic Cherian George at the National University of Singapore (NUS) last Friday (Mar 9) was delayed due to "an oversight" and he has accepted an invitation to give a talk later this month, the university said on Wednesday.

    In a blog post last Friday, Prof George, who is a Singapore citizen, wrote that he was invited in December last year to deliver a public lecture at NUS but the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences received approval for the event only on the day itself, a development he described as "the punchline to a bad joke".

    He wrote: "It’s Friday 9 March. My calendar tells me I’m supposed to be delivering a lecture today at the National University of Singapore. The view from my window tells me I never left Hong Kong. My host was unable to go ahead with the event because official approval was not forthcoming — until 3pm today."

    A few days prior to the scheduled talk, Prof George said that he "was forced to" decline, since there was no longer time to make travel arrangements and publicise the lecture.

    He was also told that "all visitors to the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences [FASS] are subject to screening", he wrote.

    Lucky he never book or money would have been wasted.

    Who is "approving" his talk?

    Have they not heard of teleconferencing?..they must be one step ahead of these 'animals' by having Plan, A, B, or C....one step ahead of what they already know, the authorities here. Why are people not smart to play the game? no wonder they get screwed all the time...one step ahead!

    He's a Singaporean but what's he doing in Hong Kong and not in Singapore waiting for the approval?

    ......NUS said: "We regret that our internal administrative process took longer than expected due to an oversight, leading to this unfortunate incident."
    Is this included in the university ranking criteria-ability to organise things/event ect2 on time?
