Cape Coast Court complex shuts down over structural defects

The Cape Coast Court complex in the Central region will be closed down from today, February 8.

The facility will be shut for public use for two days for assessment by building experts after cracks were detected in the structure.

 

A statement signed by the Judicial secretary, Justice Alex B.Poku-Acheampong, said the closure has become necessary due to a report received by the Chief Justice on the condition of the building, especially the concrete slab which requires immediate attention.

 

The statement said management has invited architects from AESL to evaluate the state of the building.

 

The court complex which was constructed in 1976 houses nine(9) courts; comprising the court of Appeal, three(3)High courts, two(2) Commercial courts, two(2)Circuit Court and a District Court.
