All jury trials for the Hilary Term of the Circuit Courts have been suspended with immediate effect due to the surge in COVID-19 cases.

The Court Administration Division said that all persons who were summoned or bound over for jury duty are being advised that they are discharged without risk of penalty and are no longer required to attend court.

Cases that qualify for bench trials and matters in which the Crown and the Defence agree to a bench trial will proceed during the Hilary Term.
