Court dates reduced for duration of Commonwealth Games
Scotland's two busiest courts are to be affected by the Commonwealth Games later this month.
After the Games begin on 23 July, there will be no summary trials and a limited number of jury courts running at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
The High Court will also be closed on 31 July due to the cycling time trial, leaving from the nearby Glasgow Green.
The Glasgow Bar Association say the reduced business will slow down an already clogged system.
Solicitor Martin Hughes, the president of the Glasgow Bar Association, said: "There are delays enough already in the courts without factoring in the Commonwealth Games period."
The Scottish Court Service said that they have have been working to minimise any delays.
A spokesperson said: "The Scottish Court Service has been working collaboratively with justice organisations to put in place suitable court programming arrangements during the Commonwealth Games.
"Impact on court programming is minimal however collaboration includes reducing wherever possible the requirement for police witnesses to attend court during the duration of the games.
"Specifically Glasgow High Court business will be re-scheduled on 31 July by one day."
