Light particles in coincidence with evaporation residues and heavy fragments have been measured by a 4π charged-particle detector at the INFN Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (Padua) for the 240 MeV 32S + 100Mo reaction leading to the 132Ce composite system at 152 MeV of excitation energy. Energy spectra of the alpha-particles in coincidence with fission fragments were extracted for many correlation angles both in plane and out of plane. A prominent out-of-plane emission was observed, consistent with the pattern for the near-scission emission. From the fit to the spectra, the pre-scission alpha-particle multiplicity of 0.040±0.006 was obtained. This value is reproduced by the code PACE2 without the inclusion of a delay time for fission. The presence of fast fission, which could be responsible for this result, is discussed.
