Members of staff at the Supreme Court are expressing fear that with the current outbreak of dengue fever, they too may be affected if their offices are not sprayed to get rid of the mosquitoes which are everywhere on the building.
The staffers said they have to be wasting a lot of time fanning away the mosquitoes.
Yesterday, witnesses sitting outside the courtrooms at the Gun Court section of the Supreme Court were seen using newspapers to fan away swarms of mosquitoes which were attacking them.
In addition to the mosquito problem, the air-conditioning units in some of the offices, including the judges' chambers, have not been working since last week.
According to one member of staff, they have outlined their concerns but were informed by a court official that resources were limited.
They said they had asked for fans as a temporary measure to assist in addressing the heat and to blow away the mosquitoes, but their requests have not been met.
"So we now have to be battling with the heat and the mosquitoes and that is a real injustice to us," one employee remarked.
The Court Management Services is responsible for the maintenance of the courthouses.
