Whoever manages the air conditioning system in the courthouse in Philipsburg needs to read up on how to handle these systems and get a grip on what is generally understood by healthy working conditions.

Yesterday our thermometer in the upstairs courtroom registered a temperature of 14 degrees Celsius (57 Fahrenheit). It is not the first time that the arctic conditions in the courtroom have been made a point of discussion, and it seems that there is a clear unwillingness to do something about this situation.

This assumption is simply based on results: nothing is done to create normal temperatures and it seems to be okay for the apparent comfort of a few to let most people suffer during a visit to this courtroom.

With outside temperatures around 27 degrees Celsius and higher on certain days, keeping a courtroom 13 degrees and sometimes more below the outdoor’s conditions is almost criminal.
