THE administration of justice was disrupted yesterday when a section of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) offices in Central was forced to shut down as it posed a health risk to employees.
Staff at the NPA's No1 Trinder Square office have been suffering from various ailments, including skin and eye irritations and respiratory problems.
The office, which is regarded as the "heartbeat" for advocates and other administration staff, is infested with mould and this forced the Labour Department to shut it down immediately.
NPA and department officials have accused the landlord of dragging his feet after they had complained for some time about the stench and generally unhygienic conditions.
