Coronavirus (COVID-19)—SCTS announces jury trials now underway across Scotland

The Scottish Courts and Tribunals (SCTS) has announced that jury trials are now underway across Scotland, with the last remote jury centres opened to serve Inverness Sheriff Courts and Aberdeen Courts. The programme for Sheriff Courts got underway in November 2020. In relation to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the SCTS, Chief Executive, Eric McQueen, said: ‘The completion of the programme means we are now back to pre-covid trial court numbers for both High Court and Sheriff Court jury trials which is a real achievement given the challenges of the pandemic lockdown.’
