High Court reopens tomorrow after extended closure

Operations at the High Court are expected to resume on Wednesday but with reduced hours. Residents will be allowed to conduct business there between 9 am and 1 pm until Friday.

Regular hours will resume on Monday, June 12.

The planned reopening of the High Court on Monday this week was delayed with workers staying off the job due to a foul smell inside the building.

For about two weeks now, the court has been closed amid concerns over mold and its possible impact on human health.

Several cases had to be placed on hold, including the high-profile Bruce Greenaway trial

On Tuesday, around 40 staff were sent home on union advice. Both court staff and jurors have complained about the presence of mold in the building, saying it was making them ill.

A meeting was held today and a decision was taken to recommence services.

The building is still being sanitized according to sources.

The entire Parliament Drive court building was closed in the last week of May while it was cleaned and sanitized.
