Regent Street businessman sues for $200M over damaged property
The operator of Guyana Realty Investments Limited has sued Claude Deygoo called Eddie Boyer, Donna Deygoo called Donna Boyer, Sherlon Edmonson and the Town Clerk of the Mayor and City Council for $200M following the damage to a Regent Street business place last week.
Acting Chief Justice, Ian Chang, upon reading an ex-parte application for an interim injunction filed on behalf of Mohamed Ali, Director and Chief Executive Officer of Realty Investments Limited, issued an order restraining the defendants or their servants from dealing with or entering the property of Sub Lot ‘B’ 117 Regent Street.
The judge also barred the defendants from interfering with the quiet enjoyment of Ali or his tenants.
The move to the court by Ali comes in the wake of the partial destruction of the property that is being claimed by Ali, by the defendants and their agents.
Ali is suing the defendants for $100M in damages for trespass committed on December 9 at the Regent Street, Lacytown, business place. He is also seeking $100M for damages done to the said building.
According to his endorsement of claim, Ali is contending that the title of both Eddie Boyer and Donna Boyer as transport owners of the lot with the buildings has been extinguished by his factual possession of the property as owner for more than 12 years by prescriptive rights.
Ali wants the court to declare him the owner of the property by prescription and that he is lawfully entitled to possession.
Ali is being represented by a battery of attorneys from the chambers of Senior Counsel Rex McKay.
This newspaper understands that efforts to serve the writ on Eddie Boyer failed after he reportedly ordered the marshal out of his office.
According to reports, Boyer told the marshal that the writ should be served on him at his home since at the time he was in a private office which was not identified in the writ.
The defendants have until 10 days after the service of the writ to enter an appearance in response.
