Reference Number: PR200475en, Press Release Issue Date: Mar 13, 2020
 
​Local tribunals will be temporarily closed as means of prevention against the spread of the coronavirus
 
Following discussions between the Minister for Home Affairs, National Security and Law Enforcement Byron Camilleri and the Minister for Justice, Equality and Governance Edward Zammit Lewis, it was decided that the local tribunals will be closing with immediate effect until further notice.
 
Pending cases will be deferred and scheduled for another date which will be communicated in due course.
 
This decision, like other decisions the Government is taking during these times, is being taken as a means of prevention, so as to ensure that both the workers of the local tribunals and even the clients, are protected from the spread of the coronavirus.
