A dilemma at the Deeds and Commercial Registry with two “Registrars” has been resolved,
the Attorney General Chambers said yesterday.
The registry was faced with an embarrassing situation two weeks ago when Registrar (acting) Nicole Prince, went on study leave to the United Kingdom. A replacement was found in her deputy, Rukmini Bijlall.
However, Prince was too late to start her classes and came back home to take back her job.
The two “Registrars” refused to budge and the matter was sent by Attorney General, Basil Williams, to the Public Service Ministry of advice.
Yesterday, the Attorney General Chambers disclosed that the matter has been resolved and that Prince will remain the Registrar (acting) until September when her classes commence in the United Kingdom.
This decision came after a meeting between the Commercial Registry staff and Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Basil Williams, yesterday, at the Commercial Registry office where “normalcy is restored”, the Chambers said in a statement.
It was explained that earlier in January, Prince, the Registrar (ag), left the shores of Guyana for the United Kingdom to pursue her studies on a two-year program.
Williams subsequently appointed Bijlall as Registrar (ag) on Prince’s recommendation
while Geeta Bijnath was appointed Deputy Registrar (ag).
“On 16th January, 2017 Ms Prince returned to Guyana to inform the Attorney General that her admission had been deferred until September 2017. Minister Williams further sought advice from the Public Service Ministry on the way forward. Today normalcy was restored and all parties involved are happy with the decision that Ms Prince will remain at work until her course is scheduled to start in September 2017.”
The purpose of the Commercial Registry is to efficiently and expeditiously administer the laws enacted by Parliament relating to trade marks, patents, copyrights, trade unions, companies, partnership, business names, powers of attorney, contracts and other deeds; and to take in revenue of the filing and registration of the various documents which are recorded in the Deeds Registry.
Yesterday, the AG Chambers released photos of both Prince and Bijlall hugging and smiling.
Indeed, one photo even showed Prince, Bijlall and Bijnath at ease.
