Attorney General commits to implement amendments to Title by Registration Act

first_img Tweet Share 40 Views   no discussions Attorney General, Levi Peter.Attorney General (AG) Levi Peter has committed to ensure that some reforms which the late Justice Albert Matthew proposed are implemented before he vacates his post, in a bid to honour his work.The High Court of Justice held a special sitting of the Court on Thursday afternoon to pay respect to Justice Matthew who died last week at the age of seventy-eight.The Attorney General described Justice Matthew at that sitting as one who was “quite committed to ensuring that the legal process and the judicial system functioned to its capacity”.Peter lamented the fact that Justice Matthew died before his proposals for reform of the Title by Registration Act could come to fruition.“Something that I know was dear to his heart which was some reforms which he had at various quarters and I think over an extended period of time spoken to various officials, various people in positions perhaps some in the position that I hold now, but a matter that he was keen to see; an amendment in respect to the Title by Registration Act. Though I was in agreement with him, those amendments have not yet been brought into effect and so he was not able to see them”.He therefore committed to working towards the implementation of these reforms as he believes they would “positively impact upon our judicial system”.“If I can manage to do that then I believe that I would have in some small way contributed and made a mark to respect the respect that is due to this man who has served with distinction in this jurisdiction and really deserves to have his views, his imputes, his impact even further embedded in our judicial system”.Justice Albert Matthew.

He was also known for his erudite decisions particularly in the area of land law I think it was. He was not a man of very many words from the bench but he always had a ready smile, he was always willing to assist us”.Justice Stephenson-Brooks told one of his children, Michelle Matthew who is an attorney that “your father has left you quite a trail to follow and I hope that trail will lead you to the bench too”.She also urged the rest of the family members to cast their burdens on the Lord for “comfort” as “in troubles and in trials, and in suffering and in sorrow he will turn your sorrows to smiles”. Justice Matthew will be laid to rest this afternoon at the Roseau Methodist Church, the funeral service will commence at 3pm.He will be buried at his home in Fond Canie on Saturday.Dominica Vibes News Sharecenter_img LocalNews Attorney General commits to implement amendments to Title by Registration Act by: – June 1, 2012 Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more
