Mystery over court closure
A cloud of mystery hangs over the lockdown of the St Matthias Court complex two days ago.
Workers, eventually joined on the outside by lawyers, accused persons and the public, were barred from entering the premises without any explanation on Wednesday.
But a source told the SATURDAY SUN that the drastic action might have something to do with reports of money going missing from the compound.
Several thousands of dollars reportedly disappeared prompting the shutdown order in an attempt to safeguard the compound while a preliminary internal investigation was conducted. But sources said that the move, with instructions given only to the security, was so sudden and secret that it caught many off guard including some in authorities.
