POLICE LYING ?

At the Magistrato's Court in the west-coast town of Gouyavo,

thispwouk, Magistrate Irvin Duncan accused the Police of 'trying

to make trouble for him'".


Before the Magistrate was the case of three members of the New

Jewel Movement who had been arrested on Friday 10th and charged

with using a loudspeaker without permission, and using a noisy

instrument on a motor vehicle.



Those three Jewel members, Simon Daniel, Dion Joseph and

Alison ThumEs ware represented in Court by Mr Maurice Bishop,

'-r i.tor (and Joint Organising Secretary of Jewel), and he told

the Hagistrate that the Police had told Mr Jerome Ford (another

Barrister) and himself, that bail for these men must be provided

in cash, according to instructions issued by Magistrate Duncan,

personally.



"I never said cash"', said Mr Duncan. "I said '500.00 and one

surety. If the Police say I said cash, they will be lying.

All they trying to do is make trouble for ma".


On application for a reduction of the amount of bail, Mr Duncan

reduced the sum of .,500.00, originally fixed, to o450.00, which

drew from Mr Bishop the comment that this was similar to the

commercial practice where merchants offer goods at 42.99.

WARD NOT FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL

Mr Erskine Ward, well known Barbadian Barrister, has denied recent

Press and Radio reports that he was duo to take up tha appointment

of Attorney General in Grenada.



i1r Ward was in Grenada recently at the request of the Government

to define the duties of the Attorney General and those of the

Solicitor General, and this, coupled with the fact that he has

recently relinquished certain positions he held in Barbados, may

have given rise to the belief that he was leaving that country

to take up residence in Grenada.
