The High Court will remain closed a little while longer, as the government continues to facilitate what they say is the “treatment of courtrooms for allergens”
The court closed last week after staff reported feeling unwell due to the presence of what appeared to be mold.
As a result, a number of cases had to be pushed back, including the high-profile murder trial of Bruce Greenaway
Legal Affairs Minister Steadroy Benjamin said the court would resume duties yesterday, however, the court informed through a statement yesterday that all matters in the Criminal Division are adjourned until Monday, June 5, while all matters in the Civil and Family Division will continue to be heard remotely unless otherwise stated.
Work is still ongoing in the courtroom to ensure that it is safe for those who utilize it.
