Prior to the Homagama District Judge Sunil Abesinghe being taken out of the Cinnamon Gardens Police station this evening, goons  purported to be his supporters, threatened journalists present at the station and warned them against taking pictures of the suspect Judge.

One of the goons threatened a photographer stating that he would break the lens of the camera if he takes pictures of the suspect Judge.

The Bribery Commission vehicle in which the judge was transported was also escorted by the goons who followed and gave protection in luxury vehicles.(ISA)

    Obviously these thugs(goons0 can not be judge's supporters. They are real government supporters. This is another drama where a judge who supported the ex CJ is humiliated.

    The judge would have helped the goons with favorable verdicts accepting bribe. They are helping in turn with gratitude. Can judge the status of the judge from this!!!!!! The business should seek police protection.

    Judge would have helped the goons favorably. Showing gratitude in return.

    This is a well orchestrated drama, other wise how can these goons move freely in a police station's premises and giving escorts etc.

    Showing gratitude is a good virtue!

    More likely, he would have adversaries.

    An impartial judge would not have any supporters.
