Bomb threats halt proceedings at the St Catherine Parish Court
A bomb threat received through an email has forced the postponement of several matters at the St Cathrine Parish Court Friday.
All present were made to exit the building.
Ancillary staff quickly placed desks and chairs in the park at Emancipation Square, where cases which were down for Friday were called up and formally postponed.
One relative of a man who was to be sentenced in the circuit court called the situation a sign.
"Him in a custody fi three years and when him fi get sentence a pure problem," Darina Belnavis said.
Meanwhile, security personnel combed the area with dogs but nothing was detected.
An investigation is underway into the matter.
