Dutch term or phrase: afg. adj. griffier
appears in 'bijgestaan door...' then is signed afg. adj. griffier. Also signing is the 'alleenzetelende rechter' - what is the best translation of this?
Lucy Simpson
Assistant Registrar or Clerk
Explanation:
Afg. = abbreviation for AFGEVAARDIGD(E) (= Representative or Deputy)
Adj. = abbreviation for ADJUNCT (= Assistant, deputy or adjunct)
Griffier = Clerk (of a court, which is the case here)

I'd translate it as follows: Assisted by the Deputy or Assistant Clerk (who has been fully authorized (by e.g. the (head) clerk) to do so)

Alleenzetelend(e) Rechter = is a judge entitled to pronounce sentences on his own; therefore, 'sole-chairing or sole-presiding or sole-seating judge' wouldn't be wrong

Delegate assistant clerk (of the court)


Explanation:
afg. = afgevaardigde = delegate, representative
adj. = adjunct = assistant, deputy
griffier = clerk of the court; I wouldn't use registrar, since that is more like the head of clerks.

alleenzetelende rechter = autocratic judge, he can solely sentence.
