SINGAPORE - President Halimah Yacob on Tuesday (June 22) officiated the swearing-in and reappointment of Justice Tan Siong Thye as a High Court judge for a further period of two years.

Said Madam Halimah: "I am confident that Justice Tan will continue to discharge his judicial duties fairly and with integrity, to uphold Singapore's Constitution."

Justice Tan graduated with a Bachelor of Law (Honours) degree from the National University of Singapore in 1979 and obtained his Master of Laws (Merit) degree from University College London under the legal service postgraduate scholarship in 1992.
