Law Court Ceiling Collapses

The law-court staff in Granada had a nasty surprise shortly after opening on Wednesday morning, when the ceiling in one of the offices fell in.

GRA Court Room Ceiling CollapseIt was 08.30h when a crash surprised the clerks in the Juzgado de Primera Instancia 9 building on Plaza Nueva, Granada. A part of the ceiling in one of the court rooms gave way.

Four people had been paper shuffling in the room next door at the time, but fortunately nobody was injured.

The first thing that the union representative did was send off a stiff email to the Committee for the Preventional of Work Hazards in the city: “we demand an urgent and viable solution, both for checking for the possible existence of structural damage and for the relocation of the four staff members.”

Taking into account the extraordinary work load that this law court is dealing with, working their way through thousands of cases each year, the union, CSIF, wants something done and quickly – which is the complete opposite to how the Spanish legal system works, as we all know.
