Queries on ongoing Court matters

Early Resolution | 01 November 2021
Judicial Administration

Following an earlier complaint along the same vein, a local attorney stated again in June 2021 that Judicial Administration staff members failed to respond to queries regarding ongoing court matters. The attorney sent an email to the Clerk of the Court seeking information and was told there would be no further engagement with him regarding this matter.

Upon receiving the complaint, we attempted to resolve the issue informally. Following some negotiations on the matter, the Chief Justice responded directly to the Ombudsman concerning the complaint in September 2021. We encouraged judicial administration officials to respond directly to the attorney, which they did by forwarding the Chief Justice’s response to the Ombudsman directly to the complainant. Following this communication, we considered the matter closed as the complainant had received his response.
