The Ministry of Justice is warning the public to be on the lookout for scammers claiming to inform persons that they have been selected for jury duty.

The Ministry says information has been circulating by way of email and social media platforms about jury selection.

The email appears to originate from a legitimate government domain, advising about jury duty and requesting that the communication be kept confidential.

The justice ministry says the system of jury selection has not been changed and so potential jurors would only be served with summonses by the police.
