Do I need to attend jury service today? (for current jurors)

Kia ora koutou katoa,

All jurors summoned for the week commencing Monday the 15th day of December 2014 do not need to attend at the Wellington District Court for the rest of the week.

There will be no more Jury Trials for the rest of the 2014.

We thank you for your service and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
