According to the sources the government had concluded investigations into judge Rohini Marasinghe and especially her husband who was operating a legal consultancy that had direct links to the cases that was presided by his wife and her work concerned.
Judge Sarath De Abrew on the other hand who has a history of violent behavior, currently has a case pending against him at the Mount Lavinia Magistrates Courts filed by a woman who was assaulted by him with a pistol. The woman in concern had initially recorded her statement with the Mount Lavinia Police earlier on the 26th of June 2015.
In an earlier related incident Judge De Abrew had gone on to display his violent streak in the Business Lounge of the Bangalore airport where he verbally abused his colleagues when returning from a Judges conference. In that particular incident on the 23rd April 2013, he was reported to be boisterous for over a ten minute period. During that time Judge De Abrew had gone on to hit one of his colleagues with a bottle of water leaving many other onlooking passengers at the Business Class Lounge in awe.
This move comes in the wake as the government is on a drive to bring about discipline and professionalism to the judiciary.
The mop up operation to debar unscrupulous elements especially among the Supreme Court judges themselves, has already commenced with disciplinary inquiries being held for district judges and magistrates who were involved in politics and misconduct.
According to our source, the government has already concluded inquiries regarding many other judges who were in question.
