The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) today dismissed an appeal in a matter brought by Mrs. Deorani Singh, who claimed that the Attorney General of Guyana and the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited owed her compensation for a commercial property that had been owned by her husband, Mr. Mohan Singh. The dispute arose after the Government had compulsorily acquired the property almost thirty-five years ago.
