Land Acquired by Government

Investigation | 22 July 2019
Lands & Survey Department (L&S)

The complainant filed a complaint against L&S alleging the government illegally acquired land and that L&S refused to meet with him to discuss the complaint. 

We investigated this matter and discovered that the Grand Court had issued a judgment in relation to the land in question. We also found that the Registrar had in fact met with the complainant. We did not support the complaint because our office does not have jurisdiction to examine the decisions of the courts and we were satisfied that the L&S had met with the complainant, contrary to the complainant's assertions.
