法官郭偉健臨陣被撤換

區院法官郭偉健上周五(24日)處理將軍澳「連儂牆」行人隧道的判刑時,痛斥示威者影響民生,指他們的行為與文革式極端主義及恐怖主義無異,認為若非社會有這種不尋常情況,該案被告不會犯案,該番言論引起部分人士不滿和批評。郭偉健今早(27日)如常在區院開庭處理案件,他原定要在今午處理一宗涉及反修例的案件,但司法機構突然把他換走,把案件交由另一名法官高勁修處理,而控辯雙方要到於今早才得悉此事。

該宗反修例案件於去年發生,警方在大埔露輝路截查一輛的士及一輛七人車,檢獲一批武器並拘捕2人,其中被捕的士司機現被控一項串謀縱火罪及一項管有物品意圖摧毀或損壞他人財產的交替控罪。案件今在區院提訊,原定由郭偉健處理。
