By Breaking Belize News Staff: The European Union has deployed a team to conduct structural assessments at one of the major buildings of the judiciary this week after the ceiling in several places collapsed.

The four-person assessment team were on-site on Tuesday, looking at the damage done to the building, which houses most of the courtrooms of the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, the Chief Justice’s Courtroom and office, and the General Registry.

The team is reportedly tasked to determine the needs of the building in terms of repairs and make a determination whether or not operations in unaffected areas can continue.

The ceiling in courtroom #4 fell on Monday, and the ceiling above the stairs to the Supreme Court fell on Tuesday. By noon Tuesday, the building had been evacuated, the power turned off and inmates from the Belize Central Prison were brought on-site to assist with the cleanup.

Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser explained that the assessment team will help to guide what comes next for the building in terms of its use. Meanwhile, some Supreme Court matters are being heard at the National Bank of Belize building on Regent Street, while the Magistrate’s Court is reportedly being relocated to the Center Point building on North Front Street which housed courtroom #8 where civil matters are dealt with.
