The Grenada Bar Association at an extraordinary meeting held on 21 September 2018 met to consider the current crisis situation involving the unavailability of High Courts due to unsuitable court facilities.
The Bar has resolved as follows:
- That the Government of Grenada must provide, at minimum, suitable facilities for temporarily housing one criminal court and one civil court no later than Friday, 28 September 2018;
- Provided suitable facilities are made available by this deadline and are approved by a committee comprising the Bench, the Bar and other relevant stakeholders, the Grenada Bar Association will then advise whether it may be prepared to occupy those facilities and to advise our clients and the public to do the same; and
- The Grenada Bar Association demands that the Government of Grenada must provide suitable accommodations to house all High Courts of Grenada and ancillary offices no later than 31 December 2018.
