PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad — In the case of Chandra Ramotar Singh v Bhagwantlall Mossai and Alvin Alves, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Wednesday held that two land titles obtained by Bhagwantlall Mossai and Alvin Alves should be cancelled because they were obtained by fraud.

The appeal concerned land at Lot 14 Mortice, Mahaicony River in Guyana. Although Singh did not have official title, he was in occupation of the land in 1989 when he agreed to buy the land from some of the heirs of the previous owner.

Unknown to Singh, Alves, Bhagwantlall Mossai and his brother, Ramrattan Mossai, had conspired to defraud him….

Roxanne George-Wiltshire

NEW YORK, Feb 2, CMC – The New York-based Caribbean Guyana Institute for Democracy (CGID) says it disagrees with the ruling of acting Chief Justice, Roxanne George-Wiltshire, in upholding the constitutionality of the December 21, 2018 motion of no confidence that brought down the coalition government in Guyana.

The CGID said that after careful deliberation of the ruling by its legal counsels and attorneys it has concluded that Justice George-Wilshire erred in her interpretation of Article 156.3 (a) and (b) of the Guyana Constitution by ignoring the intent of the framers in its construction.

“We believe the ruling is ‘activist’ in nature, as, rather than interpret the intent of the provision, which is the role of the court, the acting Chief Justice…

Letter: Guyana Private Sector Commission has endorsed the attempted PPP coup

Dear Sir:

On January 16, 2019, the Guyana Private Sector Commission officially endorsed the position of the PPP, Guyana’s political opposition. It called for the democratically elected government of Guyana to resign and call elections following an attempted coup by the PPP. The PSC interjected itself into this political firestorm after the chief justice announced that she will in two weeks rule on the legality of the no confidence vote, which, if deemed lawful, could precipitate elections in 2019.

The PSC is cognizant that Article 106 (7) of the constitution mandates that, pursuant to the successful passage of a no confidence vote, the government shall only resign after an election is held and a new president is sworn it. Article 106 (7) cannot be invoked because a…

Coalition in Guyana backs Granger for President

President David Granger seems to have the backing of the members of the coalition A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) as it prepares for a possible regional and general election in March this year.

The Granger coalition collapsed last month after then government backbencher, Charrandass Persaud, on December 21, backed a motion of no confidence filed by the general secretary of the main opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Bharrat Jagdeo.

The decision by Persaud, a former member of the Alliance for Change (AFC), the second biggest member in the coalition, meant that regional and general elections are likely by March this year in keeping with the Guyana Constitution. The coalition had enjoyed a one seat majority in the 65-member National Assembly.

The High Court…
