Courts to become more accessible
Physical and technical enhancements should soon be coming to both the Magistrates’ Courts and High Court in an effort to make them user-friendly for people with disabilities.
Registrar of the Supreme Court Barbara Cooke-Alleyne said yesterday that all of the courts were in line for an upgrade.
Her disclosure came just days after Dario Hollingsworth, who is unable to walk, had to be lifted in and out of the District “A” Magistrates’ Court by policemen while appearing on a burglary charge.
Cooke-Alleyne said she was aware some of the courts provided little to no accessibility for disabled persons. (RB)
