THE Durban high court has been closed since December 14 and will re-open on Monday. A notice posted on the wall of the building states that the court was closed due to a fumigation exercise to get rid of bugs. Yesterday after 10 am, an employee who asked not to be named said everyone has been going to a designated office to sign in for duty, although no one did any work. The court building doors and windows were sealed off with black plastic material, while contract workers were seen busy in strategic areas of the building. Justice spokesperson Mthunzi Mhaga could not be reached for comment.
