Re: 2016-HC-DEM-CIV-CM-6, Gaytrie Singh also known as Gaytrie Saikar v The Attorney General of Guyana
Reference is made to correspondence dated 25th November 2016 on the above subject matter.
The Central Authority is concerned with the decision of the Hon. Chief Justice (ag), Madame Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards, in light of the Government’s position to award free Core Houses to persons who have been delinquent in occupying the land purchased subject to registered interests. The said decision will affect the Government/Central Authority in proceeding with the repossession policy against allottees who have breached the terms of the registered interests in their transports and Certificates of Title.
In light of the decision made in the Gaytrie Singh also known as Gaytrie Saikar matter and more recently, also in the Linda Persaud v The Attorney General of Guyana, the Central Authority wishes to be advised whether the Attorney General of Guyana has considered appealing the said decisions. The Central Authority is of the view that the decisions ought to be appealed.
C. Mr. Hamilton Green, Chairman
Ms Deborah Edwards, Secretary
Central Housing and Planning Authority
