The registry of the Courts of Justice has re-opened as from today, Monday 4th May 2020, pursuant to legal notice 177 of 2020 which amends the Closure of the Courts of Justice Order. This effectively means that ALL court acts and judicial proceedings may from now onwards start to be filed again, irrespective of whether such are of an urgent nature or not. This legal notice does not repeal or lift the order which suspends legal and judicial time limits, which for now remain suspended. Measures will be taken to ensure social distancing rules and the safety of anyone requiring use of the courts' registry.
