Psychiatrist Tommy Tan, who was supposed to testify for the defence in the sex-for-grades corruption trial involving former law professor Tey Tsun Hang, will need to appear in court tomorrow or risk being arrested.

This after the consultant psychiatrist at the Novena Psychiatric Clinic had repeatedly failed to show up in court despite having been subpoenaed.

Chief District Judge Tan Siong Thye on Tuesday ordered a warrant of arrest to be issued on Dr Tan if he failed to turn up in court again.

The judge, in giving Dr Tan "one last chance", told the defence to convey to the psychiatrist consequences of the failure to attend Court at 2.30pm on Wednesday.
