The sewerage system at the recently refurbished Georgetown Magistrates Courts is now overflowing and according to workers there, the system has been defective from the time the courts reopened.
At approximately 2pm the effluent rose beyond its boundaries and an hour later, it had covered the route to the prisoner’s chute leading to Courts One and Two. Prisoners and police officers had no choice but to walk through the water, and attorneys too could be seen picking their way through the effluvium.
An elderly woman said she avoided the sewage by walking behind the south-western end of the building, while another woman shouted, “This place stink, stink, stink!” Police officers
who had no option had to sit and endure the stench.
