Renovation works for courtrooms

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

THE Suva courthouse is undergoing minor renovation and this necessitated the closure of magistrates courts five and six.

Court cases scheduled for these courts are being called in other courtrooms at Government Buildings.

The week-long renovation began on Monday and could result in the installation of video cameras in courtrooms to record all proceedings.

So far Magistrates Court one, where Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili presides, is the only magistrates court that has video recording equipment.

All court proceedings for courtroom five are now being heard in the Supreme Court with presiding Magistrate Yohan Liyanage and matters called before Magistrate Sufia Hamza in courtroom six are being heard in courtroom four.

The public notice at the courthouse in Suva does not state any time frame for the completion of the renovation.
