Department of Justice and Constitutional Development announced that the provision of justice services is temporarily suspended at the Protea Magistrates’ Court from Monday, 14 June 2021 until further notice. The suspension is occasioned by problems of water supply due to damaged and aging piping infrastructure.
“All matters that were scheduled at the court will be postponed, members of the public who are supposed to appear before the court are advised to visit the court to secure new court appearance dates.”
Justice services will in the interim, be offered at Lenasia, Kliptown, Orlando as well as Meadowlands Magistrates’ Courts.
The department said it is working around the clock with the Department of Public Works to ensure speedy restoration of services and apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
