A witness in a matter at the High Court on Tuesday fell through the floor of the public restroom of the historic building in Kingstown.
The witness, a former police officer, showed the media the smudges on his trousers as a result of the incident.
He was also very grateful that he was not injured.
The restroom is located in a section of the building where the Search Room of the Registry used to be before it was relocated to another rebuilding in Kingstown.
The floor of the restroom is in urgent need or repair.
Pieces of board have been placed across a gap in the floor to make it possible for persons to safely use the toilet facilities there.
