Princes Town court temporarily moved to Rio Claro Magistrates' Court
Created : 10 September 2018
The Judiciary is seeking to advise members of the public that the Princes Town Magistrate’s Court has been temporarily relocated as a result of structural damage which the building suffered following the 6.9 earthquake that struck Trinidad and Tobago on August 21.
The court’s operations have been moved to the Rio Claro Magistrates’ Court from September 10 and the following schedule will be implemented:
- The Rio Claro Magistrates’ Court will operate from 8 am to 11 am. Court will continue to sit from 9 am as usual.
- The Princes Town Magistrates’ Court will operate from 11:15 am to 4:15 pm.
The First Court will sit from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.
The Second Court will sit from 1:45 to 3:45 pm.
The Judiciary said it apologises for any inconvenience but that the move has become necessary in the interest of access to justice and to ensure the safety of all stakeholders.
