Chief only for curfew cases


Share post:

The only magistrate with islandwide jurisdiction will be hearing all the COVID-19 breach of curfew cases from now on.

Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes revealed today he has been directed by Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson to adjudicate all the curfew charges. The disclosure was made as the only two new charges he dealt with were breach of curfew cases from the District C jurisdiction.

“Your humble servant has been mandated to do all of these matters involving this COVID order. I will be doing all COVID matters going forward,” Weekes said, as he presided in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.

“So, as of today, I am the only magistrate doing all of the curfew cases,” he added. (HLE)
