Dr Wee Teong Boo, who is on trial for molesting and later raping his young patient, told a court “it was general knowledge” that saliva has "antibacterial properties".

On the 10th day of Wee’s trail, the Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) contended Wee's entire account of carrying out a digital examination to rule out pelvic inflammatory disease was a lie.
