The following is issued on behalf of the Judiciary:
Attention duty announcers, radio and TV stations:
Please broadcast the following as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:
     The Judiciary has announced that because of the anticipation of the issuing of the Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8, all hearings of the courts/tribunals, including any admission proceedings, are adjourned today (Saturday). 
     Those who were due to attend court hearings today but were affected by the issuing of  the Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 should do so at 9.30am on the next working day (October 11) unless otherwise notified.
     As for those who were due to attend admission proceedings in the High Court this morning are not required to attend court until further notice in writing.
     Court/tribunal registries and offices will open as usual on the next working day (October 11).

     It is anticipated that there will be a significant number of people going to the courts.  In particular, for the High Court, given the need for security screening, court users are advised to arrive at the court building earlier to allow time for screening, particularly during the peak hours in the morning.
