Judge Warawewa harassed for judgment: Ranil .


High Court Judge W. T. M. P. B. Warawewa who acquitted former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka of all charges in the white flag case has already been subjected to harassment, Opposition UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe alleged today.
Mr. Wickremesinghe who was addressing a public meeting at Dematagoda said the computer which the High Court Judge was using at his chambers at courts has been damaged after this verdict.

The opposition leader said his party would raise the issue with regard to the judgment in Parliament.

Mr. Wickremesinghe referring to the dissenting judgment said the Honourable High Court judge was not allowed to read out his verdict in Court on Friday. He explained that the usual tradition followed in court was to read out all verdicts when the bench is divided. However he said this tradition was not followed in the Colombo High Court on Friday.
