High Court Reopening Delayed Due to Foul Smell and Mould Concerns

Court Building

The reopening of the High Court on Monday was delayed due to a foul smell in the building. Concerns over mould and its impact on human health had led to the court’s closure for about two weeks.

The Bruce Greenaway murder trial and other cases were put on hold. Around 40 staff were sent home on union advice, despite a meeting between Attorney General Steadroy Benjamin and the workers.

Both court staff and jurors had reported feeling ill due to the presence of mould.

The court building was cleaned and sanitised, and criminal cases were postponed until June 5.

The Attorney General will meet with staff again, and arrangements are being made to fully restore court operations.
