The Attorney General informed the Supreme Court today that Mount Lavinia Chief Magistrate Mohamed Sahabdeen has acted in a biased manner when granting bail to Supreme Court Judge Sarath Abrew. 

Judge Sarath Abrew surrendered to court after he was charged for assaulting his domestic aid.

Solicitor General Yasantha Kodagoda who appeared for the Attorney General requested the Supreme Court to bring down, and inspect the original document in connection with this case.

The fundamental rights case filed by Supreme Court Judge Sarath Abrew was taken up for hearing before a bench of two Supreme Court judges including Upali Abeyrathna and Anil Gunarathne. 

The judges later decided to bring down the original case document to be checked.

Police stated that Judge Abrew refused to give a statement when police visited him at his residence to record a statement following the complaint made by his housemaid on June 27th.

However, Mt.Lavinia Magistrate Mohammad Sahabdeen released judge Abrew on a Rs. 500,000 personal bail, after he surrendered to court yesterday.

   

When the fundamental rights cased filed by judge Abrew was taken for hearing today, lawyer appeared for the victim, J.C. Weli Amuna informed court that his client was sexually assaulted by judge Abrew.

He also said that the suspect has intimidated in the respective investigations. 

At the same time, Sri Lanka Bar Association informed the Supreme Court today that it would intervene in this case as it has drawn public attention.

At this juncture, the bench of two Supreme Court Judges stated that they would draw the attention of the Chief Justice to hear the judge Abrew’s fundamental rights case before a bench comprising more that 5 Supreme Court judges.

Meanwhile, police media spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekera said that the CID is recording a statement from Judge Sarath Abrew inside the Mt. Lavinia court premises.
