designating a power of attorney
i am the sole survivor of my mother who resided, and was consequently killed in the small west african nation of sierra leone three years ago. Yesterday, i received a call from a relative of mine who also resides in that country, and he explained that my mother had owned land, but since no one ever claimed the land, others acquired it illegally- a common practice in that country. Anyway, i want to designate the power of attorney, to this relative, who will act on my behalf, since i am abled to travel at this time. how do i go about doing this? will a simple notorized letter do?
