Justice Minister, Naomi Long has issued the following statement regarding upcoming court proceedings and Covid-19:

“The wider justice family is working together to mitigate any risks and ensure the continued delivery of justice in Northern Ireland; not least on important matters pertaining to public safety and personal liberty, which are dealt with by the Courts.

“We will continue to follow Public Health Agency (PHA) guidance and members of the public may wish to consider whether they need to attend court sittings if they do not have a role to play in proceedings.

“Anyone attending courts, as with any other public building, should follow common sense guidelines: Do not attend if you are unwell yourself. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before, during and after visiting.

“If you, or anyone attending a court or tribunal with you, have a confirmed or possible Coronavirus (Covid-19) infection, you should contact the court or tribunal in which the hearing is due to take place or your legal representative. You can find the links with relevant contact details for each service and venue on the Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunals Service webpage.”
