Supreme Court ‘a sick building’
THE MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR Halls of Justice, which was opened in 2009, has been condemned by the Bar Association as a sick building.
Tariq Khan, the president of the association, called the court complex at Whitepark Road a health hazard during a news conference yesterday. He said that people attending the court have suffered coughing fits, watering eyes and other ailments.
Speaking at the association’s Perry Gap, Roebuck Street office, Khan revealed that when the building was opened, “it was not properly cleaned”.
“I am not sure if members of the public are aware of that,” he said, “But it is our responsibility to tell the public that this building has a host of health challenges, to the extent that some members who work within that building are unable to function throughout the day, without falling into a seizure of coughing, watering eyes and so on.”
