Court Room Security

Dear colleagues,

In light of recent incidents in two of our District courts all persons in custody in the District Court will henceforth be held in the Custody area in the Courtroom.  All consultations will have to take place in this area or in the custody area downstairs.

The practice of solicitors consulting with clients in custody in the lobby and corridors of the courthouse can no longer be facilitated.

This amendment to practices is for the safety of all court users.
