After 34 years, Guyana’s Laws finally updated


Laws[] – Following four failed attempts, the laws of Guyana have finally been revised to December 2010. This is after a 34 year hiatus. At the official ceremony on Friday morning (February 28), Member of the Law Revision Commission, Justice Claudette Singh said that the protracted delay was as a result of the gross underestimation of the subsidiary legislation involved.

Additionally, Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall assured that the government will not allow another 34 years to pass before the laws are updated again.

In this regard, he noted that the law revision commission has been established within the Legal Affairs Ministry and will commence its work soon, as the staff has already undergone training.

That entity will be tasked with continuously revising the laws of Guyana.
