A Supreme Court Judge has declined to give a statement to the police in connection with accusations of assaulting a female servant in his employment.

A woman who had served as a domestic worker at the residence of the judge in question on Friday (June 26) lodged a complaint with Mt. Lavinia Police claiming that she had been assaulted.

Based on this complaint, a team of police officers had visited the judge’s residence last evening in order to record a statement regarding the matter, police spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said.

However, the judge had declined to give a statement, he said.
