According to lawyer of four of the accused judges, Egbert Faibille Jnr, screening the video will be prejudicial.

“We went to watch the movie… From what I have seen, certain considerations ought to be recognized in portions of what took place behind or around them which had been taken off. The video should not be a conclusive basis for finding anybody guilty until due process is followed. There are certain sensibilities… At least I saw one child in the video. Are you going to show a child to the world because a parent was engaged in some discussions with somebody? We are talking about permanent records and I think that the frenzy should come down,” he told Starr News.
