Short Update: German Regional Court of Limburg to conduct criminal proceedings in tent construction to grant wider public access

FT Admin - June 30, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Rule of Law, Court closures

Due to COVID-19-related restrictions and lack of space, the Limburg Regional Court ("Landgericht") is going to use a tent construction made of synthetic material as a courtroom for large-scale criminal proceedings. The tent construction is built on a fenced and monitored area in an industrial zone. It offers seats for up to 8 accused and 28 visitors. This allows to make trials accessible to the wider public again. In contrast, only 13 visitor seats are currently available at the largest courtroom of the Limburg Regional Court. The construction costs and the monthly maintenance costs for the tent are estimated at EUR 15,000 each.
