A civil appeal involving the Government of Guyana and a landowner is scheduled to start today at the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).

The appeal is listed even while the Opposition party, the United National Congress-Alliance (UNC-A), has criticised the wanton waste of money and lack of work for the judges of the CCJ.

The appeal, which is due to start at 10 a.m., is seeking to resolve the issue of whether the Guyanese government can acquire by adverse possession, land compulsory acquired, which has subsequently been declared by the court to be invalid.

One of the main opponents of the CCJ, Sir Fenton Ramsahoye,QC, and Anand Ramlogan are listed to appear for the appellant Toolsie Persaud Limited.

Guyana's Attorney General Doodnauth Singh QC, appears for the Attorney General of Guyana while other Guyanese lawyers appear for the landowner.
