Ex­perts di­vided over move to force pa­tient to tes­tify

Metro Canada (Toronto) - - Toronto -

On­tario’s med­i­cal reg­u­la­tor wants to force a for­mer pa­tient in a Toronto doc­tor’s on­go­ing sex­ual abuse dis­ci­pline hear­ing to tes­tify by hav­ing her ar­rested by the po­lice. The Col­lege of Physi­cians and Sur­geons of On­tario has sought a bench war­rant from a judge in or­der to com­pel a re­luc­tant wit­ness to give ev­i­dence. The re­fusal by the wit­ness to ap­pear at the col­lege has put the mat­ter of Dr. Su­gan­than Kay­i­lasanathan in jeop­ardy. With­out her, there is likely no case against the doc­tor, who is fac­ing al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual abuse of a pa­tient, which he de­nies.
