TWO and a half years after a building was leased for close to $1.5 million, three new magistrates’ courts were officially opened by Chief Justice Ivor Archie.

The new building, which will house the Traffic, Petty Civil and Domestic Violence courts, has been outfitted with digital audio recording systems. Archie said the judiciary will embark on a major refurbishment exercise targeting all magistrates’ courts.

Work on the Point Fortin Magistrates’ Court is expected to be completed this month, while contracts were awarded last month for the refurbishment of Rio Claro Courts, he said.

Archie said the Chaguanas Magistrates Court will be upgraded over the next nine months and a site has already been found for the construction of a “modern” court for Arima.

The Chief Justice recently embarked on a tour of courts in Central and South Trinidad and said yesterday the general conditions of magistrates’ courts throughout TT were not conducive for work.

“The present environment is generally not conducive to allow the magistrates, court staff, court support agencies, and those who seek justice before the courts, to conduct their business with the appropriate access to modern facilities, in safety and relative comfort, without undue delay and hardship,” he said.

Archie said the new technology to be implemented in the courts, will lead to the speedier hearing of cases.
