PRACTICE DIRECTIONS No. 2/2020

UPSCALING OF COURT OPERATIONS RE: CJ’S DIRECTIVE 8.6.2020

As you are aware, the Hon. Chief Justice has directed that we upscale court operations by reopening Courts on Monday 15th June 2020. As such, this is to advise that hearings will be conducted with 15 minute intervals to allow for cleaning of the Courtroom and evacuation of the attendees. Advocates appearing will only come into the Court premises after complying with the Health Guidelines issued by the Judiciary, wear a mask, be subjected to a temperature test and only attend with one and a maximum of 2 witnesses as directed in my earlier practice directions. There will be designated sitting places in the Court room and etiquette must be observed in all interactions at Court. No physical contact or any handover of documents shall be allowed in Court. Please be advised and strictly follow the Guidelines issued failing which you shall be forcefully removed and barred from the Court premises.
