Apostille Convention: simple, much more effective means of certifying public documents – Hague Conference…

first_imgThe Hague Convention of October 5, 1961, abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents (Apostille Convention), proposes a more efficient and effective means of certifying public documents that have to be sent overseas.This is according to Secretary General, Hague Conference on Private International Law Dr Christophe Bernasconi, whilst presenting the provisions of the Apostille Convention and e-App Programme to participants of the Hague Conference at the Pegasus hotel. The three-day, Hague Convention Conference on International Family Law, Legal Co-operation and Commerce ended on Friday.Dr Bernasconi added that the Apostille Convention is not widely utilised in the Caribbean region as such the focus of efforts should be on ensuring that it becomes a reality.“The idea is that the competent authority either gets it in electronic form or scans the paper and issue electronically, and then the public document can easily be sent abroad…If you have an electronic document, you want to be in a position to issue electronic Apostille for scanned documents,” Dr. Bernasconi explained.Public documents, according to the Convention, are those which emanate from an authority or official connected with a court or tribunal of the State and includes documents issued by an administrative, constitutional or ecclesiastical Court of tribunal (a public prosecutor, a clerk or a process-server). The main examples of public documents for which Apostilles are issued in practice include birth, marriage and death certificates; extracts from commercial and other registers; patents; court rulings; notarial acts and notarial attestations of signatures; and academic diplomas issued by public intuitions.Dr Bernasconi believes that it’s just a matter of time before Apostilles are issued in electronic form due to the significant convenience that they offer. Columbia for example, he cited, issues approximately 6000 electronic Apostilles per day. He therefore urged countries which were not yet parties to the Convention to sign onto it in order to access the benefits.Asked whether a significant legislative agenda has to be put in place to get to the point of electronic Apostilles, Dr Bernasconi said that States would first have to ask the basic questions then based on the response, make positive steps to remedy shortcomings.“States would have to ask the basic question, if electronic documents are recognised as valid documents…that’s the basics all jurisdictions go through before electronic Apostilles are in place…the next level deals with the question whether scanned documents are treated as original documents…where the response is no, amendments must be made to necessary legislations to ensure scanned documents are treated as originals,” Dr. Bernasconi explained.He added that under the Convention an Apostille issued by one contracting state has to be recognised in the other. According to the Convention, the only effect of an Apostille is to certify the authenticity of the signature, the capacity in which the person signing the document has acted and where appropriate, the identity of the seal or stamp which the document bears. The Apostille does not relate to the content of the underlying document itself.To monitor the Convention’s practical operation, Special Commission meetings are convened by the Permanent Bureau of the Hague Conference.last_img read more

Father of 2 jailed for stealing phone

first_imgA father of two will now spend the next 18 months away from his children after he entered a car and made off with a cellphone.Twenty-two-year-old Kevin Christopher, of Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara (WCD), admitted to Magistrate Judy Latchman that he committed the offence.Christopher stole the Samsung Galaxy cellular phone valued $75,000 from Alan Campbell’s car on June 21, 2018.He told the Court that he stole the phone and was going to sell it to buy food and milk for his children.He further relayed that he, however, gave the phone to a cousin at Houston, East Bank Demerara (EBD), where it was found by the Police. He was later arrested and slapped with the simple larceny charge.The young father of two apologised and asked for the Court for leniency as the phone was returned.However, Magistrate Latchman slapped him with an 18-month sentence and warned him not to steal but to “work hard for what you want the honest way – teach your children right”.last_img read more

Only on Silicon Valley would an intellectual pro

first_imgOnly on “Silicon Valley” would an intellectual property case hinge on lawyers figuring out that when Richard is talking about his “girlfriend” in e-mails, he’s referring to his laptop.In a conveniently timed twist, Richard—who’s always maintained he never worked on Pied Piper at Hooli—realizes that for a three-day period while his “girlfriend” was in the shop, he ran one test on the Pied Piper algorithm on a Hooli computer. This revelation happens to come the night before he’s set to testify in a binding arbitration hearing to settle the intellectual property case once and for all.(Last week on “Silicon Valley”: A hack attack from within)This episode was the first time since early in the season the show truly dissected the lawsuit at the core of season two. It takes a new character in disbarred lawyer Pete Monahan (Matt McCoy), a mountain of discovery documents, and a stray Nucleus beta phone to finally address the case hanging over “Silicon Valley’s” sophomore slump. Monahan—fresh out of an 11-month jail stint after a drug-fueled bender worthy of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”—is working the case pro bono because technically a disbarred lawyer can still litigate an arbitration hearing.Since Hooli never cracked Richard’s middle-out compression algorithm, the mobile beta of Nucleus is a disastrous joke. Big Head finds a Nucleus beta phone left in a bar by the depressed Hooli brogrammers pulling their hair out over the project, and he decides his buddy Richard needs a win. Out of funding and on the brink of a failed startup, Richard and his lawyer blackmail Gavin Belson and Hooli’s lawyers into the binding arbitration. Otherwise “The tech blogs and journalists would tear Nucleus apart,” Richard meekly threatens.At the trial, Hooli’s lawyers invoke their weak argument about Big Head’s meteoric rise within the company proving how crucial he was to the inception of Pied Piper. Monahan counters by cross-examining Erlich about his poor business judgment and failed incubator to show just how little Big Head really brings to the table, frazzling Erlich enough for him to let slip about Richard’s “girlfriend” spending a few days in the shop.Finally confronting the question of intellectual property head-on, Richard doesn’t lie on the stand because “If his company was built on lies, it would make it just like Hooli.”last_img read more
