All Saints Court Ready to Reopen

All Saints Court Ready to ReopenAntigua St. John's - The All Saints Magistrate's Court will reopen its doors after being closed for over a year.

The court has been closed since former senior magistrate Asquith Riviere vacated the bench in November 2012.

Magistrate Conliffe Clarke took up the post, but operated from a courtroom at the St John's Magistrate's Court, adjudicating District B Bolans and All Saints matters.

Clarke was expected to sit in All Saints from Monday after the court underwent minor renovations.

The court is located in the All Saints Police Station, and officers would have access to the courtroom when no sittings are in session.

Sources said a number of the chairs previously used by attorneys were misused when court was not in session.

Reports said Public Works was instructed to change the locks to prevent the destruction of the new furniture.

The All Saints Magistrate's Court serves communities including All Saints, Liberta, English Harbour, Willikies, Parham, Pares, and Coolidge.
