6 Feb 2019

In the case of Chandra Ramotar Singh v Bhagwantlall Mossai and Alvin Alves, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) today held that two land titles obtained by Mr. Bhagwantlall Mossai and Mr. Alvin Alves should be cancelled because they were obtained by fraud. The appeal concerned land at Lot 14 Mortice, Mahaicony River in Guyana. Although Mr. 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 Mr. Singh, Mr. Alves, Mr. Bhagwantlall Mossai and his brother, Mr. Ramrattan Mossai, had conspired to defraud him.
