Jurors who were summoned to appear before the High Court of Justice on 18th January are being advised that this date has been adjourned to 21st January, 2022.
This decision applies only to jury trials as the Court has indicated that judge only trials will proceed as scheduled on 18th January.
The notice was issued by the High Court this week to jurors who have been asked to serve during the upcoming Criminal Assizes.
According to a statement from the court on Tuesday, the decision was taken “due to the recent outbreak in COVID-19 cases and the difficulties associated with preventing the spread of the very contagious Omicron variant.”
The statement continued, “The situation will be assessed during this time and new directives will be issued advising of any further changes to be made.”
