The Musina magistrate's court has been closed after the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development was served with a notice prohibiting the building from being used as the structure was in danger of collapsing.

The Law Society of SA informed its members on Tuesday that as a result, all cases will be postponed in the interim.

The notice issued by the department of employment & labour, dated July 26, stated that the cash hall, Court A District Court and Court B Regional Court posed an immediate danger of collapse that may cause fatal injuries.

The notice also said electrical distribution boards that do not have covers and with exposed bare wires posed a danger of electrocution.

The justice department was not immediately available for comment.
