9 May ’07: Everyone was left in the dark as the entire court complex was plunged into darkness due to a powercut.
23 May ’07: The Court started to drown under the weight of its problems as a water pipe bursts and floods the cafeteria found in the basement level of the court complex.
25 May ’07: The sum of all these problems really raised a stink as sewer overflowed out of a manhole due to a blockage. Court files which were placed directly over the manhole were damaged.
26 May ’07: A possible reason to this catalogue of problems? The Court complex does not have a Certificate of Fitness.
26 May ’07: We also find out that the shuttle van service ferrying court staff, lawyers and members of the public to the Court complex did not have a permit to operate such a service.
I anticipate that I will be updating this list quite regularly.
