Violent and destructive acts in Ooth
Grand Bay area and Roseau, directed
against the owner of Geneva Estate Mr.
as Nassief, resulted in the burning of
i ;. gentleman's Town store before dawn
; Tuesday, while simultaneously his es-
tate house at Geneva was burnt down. Pre
viously it had been ransacked and pilfered,
while he also lost animals, crops and coco
1t3 trees. 124 employees are jobless.

The "Grand Bay Unrest" .differs ex- g
tremely from the 10.astl'.Bruce Affair" i
in many ways but, irrespective of the w
difference in manner of approach, -the T
objective is nonetheless the "a;mo a A
drive for docio-oconomioal reforms .and a
land. Therefore. before the outn ider q
draws his own "biased" conclusion it
s. both wian and'-vitally important that t
he should survey, view and weigh the
facts. ....... .
Deluded by the. fantasies of a philo- m
sophy :which seems to be th16 most prac- t
tical system of' revolution, the mainly
young people, wish-to "regi'n"-unutil- c
ized lands in the Geneva Estate area I
which they. feel had boon""robbedl" by
the estate's. owner. They. are convinced
that, due to their elders 'and predeces- ]
soroc ignorance, Mr. Nassief, from time
to time, had encroached oh bordering
small holdings, lands and/or gardens
and tactfully claimed such properties.
Mislod or not, irrespective 'of the con-
sequences, they are determined to re-
-azfiacate their "rightful possessions"
for proper and fruitful use, '
The validity of this possibly, just
cause will definitely be'ignodred or
negatiVed' due to the daimnable approach
to appropriation, since the protagonist
have chosen such violent methods towards
the fulfilment of their aspirations~
It 'is obvious that potnAtial sympathi--
sora will turn their bac1ta on the fight-
ers. But there are gruesome realities
which we must face. For instance, vil-
lagers of Grand Bay who deplore such
acts of violence fully know that over
75o 6f the area's populace (the most
dons in the State) approve the youths
and support their claim; and not through
fear.
The offensive agitators see in Phiatip
Francis the dynamic qualities of a dar-
ing loader; such as the qualities the
Germans-.found in Hitler. And, although
Phillip's radical means' id so faulty,
the result of his arrest"may be very
catastrophic for the people of Dominica.
As is the case in Jamaica so it is in
G.B. There are more legbl guns and sticks
of dynamite in the hand of illegal
people than we could dream of. In addi-
tion, the defensible. topographical ad-
vantage of Grand Bay's terrain'- Lika it
inpenetrable for both police ,(nt oo.)

THE DANIEL CAdTDEIRO APPEAL
A"Ju'a i wefe "isn Justice Denied". So states the -Public Service Board of
Appeal in regretting the unreasonable delay in the Appeal by Daniel Caudeiron
against the decision of the Public Service Com-issio- made on the 5th day of
June, 1975, with regard to his terms and conditions of service.
This Appeal, the first of several Appeals arising o'7'jt of the Radio Domin-
ica Affair was entered on the 14th day of June, 1973 9 months before it came
up for hearing and 10 months before a decision was f :rlty handed down.
The reluctance of the duly appointed Chairman to lo'jr the several Appeals
before the Board necessitated the aApcdatment of a temporary Chairman in Sept-
ember 1973 to hear the Appeals of Symes and Imaximea against the decision of
the Public Service Commission to retire them in the public Interest. The
Chairman eventually resigned without hearing any of the other Appeals and a
new Chairman was appointed with effect from the 1st of January 1974.
After stating that it has been unable to discover any legitimate reason
for this delay the Board proceeds to dismiss the Appeal on grounds which some
will find difficult to follow. .
Thea Board first sets out the grounds of Appeal and then proceeds: "It would
be as well at the outset to emphasise that the functions of this Board of
Appeal which is vested with jurisdiction by Section 65 of the Dominica Const-
itution Order, 1967 and Regulation 26 of the Public Sprvice Regualtions
(S.R,&O. 24 of 19733 are limited in scope to the grievances outlined in the
notice of Appeal dated the 14th day of June, 19735, The said grounds. of appeal
were supplemented by an additional ground (ground 5. 'dated the 25th day of
September, 1973). This new ground raised a legal objection by contending that
Section 110(7) of the Constitution of Dominica had beep contravened. The
entire substance of this appeal is, accordingly, limited to allegations of
events inimical to the Appelant which had supervened before the date of the
appeal, the 14th day of June, 1973."
Wh-ile.thu-.l-iting its compleence to events which had supervened before
the date of appeal 14th June 1973 the Board's conclusion appears to be contra-
dictory: "In our view, this transfer of the Appellant to the Technical Col-
lege, and at very short notice, may well have imporIted a scintilla of dis-
ciplinary control. But, notwithstanding, the AiElilap. was secured 1n his
emoluments, and his movement did not rest there, because on the 1bth June,
his appointment to act in a higher post at greater emQluments supervened.
He later assumed his new duties without complaint at the material time. His
-grounds of appeal* indeed, make no submission about this post even though he
did later on complain about his treatment in general terms to Mr. Shaw, Chief
Establishment Officer, who also gave evidence that the Aa0i1ant had proved
efficient and reliable in his present .post. Furthermore, the Appellant
,remains the substantive holder of the post of Progranrme Assistant.
In all circumstances, we find that the Appellant is not now the object of
any removal or disciplinary or punitive act by the 'uthorties and that con-
sequently, the circumstances of his transfer or secondment to the Technical
College can no longer become a subject for our delibeirations. It follows,
therefore, that all five grounds of appeal must fail.'"
If a scintilla of disciplinary control was evide4t:,it is, one would have
thought, proof of disciplinary control and thus it 's difficult to see why
the jurisdiction of the Board was not thereby let i4 whereupon the Board was
empowered under sec.85(3) of the Constitution to confirm or set aside any
decision or make any other decision which the Public ?rvice Commission or
any other person might have made..
The Board observed that no provision appeared to exist permitting the free
transfer by the administration of Civil Servants with or without their consent:
"o provision has been brought to our attention other than General Order 66.

THE DANTIEL CAUDEIROT Al .L (from p.5) "It is of course obvious that where by the
terms of his ointment- an officer is liable to transfer, the issue will not arson, o
but in the case of the Apel lalt We have been unable to discover that any such pro..
vision was made at the t Qm of his appointmeng L--h-Ce Board note.thnat the Appellant
remained the substantive holder of the *ost of Progranme Assistant,, What action an
officer or his Assooiatiphn might take if the Public Service Commission or the Admin-
istration order his illegal transfer is thus wide open as an area of conflict.
Of particular interest to the Civil Servant is the advice volunteered by the
Board to the Establishment Division: "To avoid future misunderstanding, the Establish-
ment Division in consultation with the Civil Service -Asociation should clearly set
out the classification of the'Civil Service within the headihgs Administrative,, Pro-
fossional, Technical, Excutive and Clerical or where any posts combine those func-
tions they should be designated accordingly. On appointment to any. post an officer
should then be informed 'in writing about the conditions bcotrolling his transferab-
ility. This may well entail an amendment of. General Orders.'
,rte mist-also stress 'that when any civil servant', below the rank of Permanent
Secretary, is to be.move4 or disciplined, no Minister or ParliamentarySe.cretary
should himself intervene save and oeoept in so far as he may have-properly made rep-
resentations to the CiviT Service Head of the Ministry involved to that end. 'The
Civil Head should consider, advise upon and guide the- course of events and the pro-
oedure applicable throughout and to finality. If he fails in his duty, he should, ..
himself become the object of discipline. In this way, the Civil Service will,,. in so
f'ar as ia, possible, be insulated from grievances deriving from alleged political'
intervention in the career aid prospects of its members; aid the frequency of ref-
erences to this Board Wil,' commehnsUrately, be reduced. Above'all, more cordial re-
lations between the Administration and its Civil Service, will,, thus, be nourished+.'
The full text of the Judgment will follow in a special C,- S. A, publication.

We consider that the lain points may be summarized like this:-
The authorities failed, to take early action to investigate and' nip the affair in
the b d. e a t o t i..... ..
The discontented must realise that they cannot achieve "their aims by terrorist
methods.
Fifteen months agoU. Mr Elias..N1assief offered 64 .acres of Geneva Estate land to
Government for village tensionn purposes, yet Government has not acted to take
up his offer and negotiate terms despite reminders." t t ..
:b application has evei bpen made to Mr. Nassief for purchase of farmland by Grand
Bay people: they would .have been given the same .consideration as the farmers of
VPchelin, who made a r quest for agricultural land., o
The State of Emergency, although declared late, was unfortunately necessary: it is
regrettable that,, desp te reinior cement of the Police, vandalism still continues.
The use of Hi hands S64hool for billeting the Defence Force, thereby causing chil-
dren to have their education interrupted, shows lack of forethought.

comodation at the Grdnd Bay Sqhool.
This caused the number of schqpl atten-
dants to be'limited. Ther.e was no voca,-
tional training for boys-. :
2) There are large aieas of unworked
land on "Geneva Estate which' should
be made available tb the vSllagers

happy., Also, police brutality of ac-
cused when ciught'should bq stopped.
It was stated that they were in no
way connected with the bottLe-throwing

Dear Madam4. 1TIIE-Ag q O ?
eaw =_-ARE IE GOING?*
This week I heard .-two gentlemen talking,
they said one .o the'honourable members
(Labour Party) who represents people in
the State went to Bath Estate, met .a
government gang -iorking there and. he (the
Honourable Member) told the foreman he
will drink some coconut. The foreman sent
a carpenter to pick the coconut. The car-
penter saw that the tree was wet; he could
not climb the tree, therefore he cut it
down, When' that was made known, they de-
ducted some $40o00 from the carpenter's -
money. I say the. authority should make "
that Honourable Nember .pay back the $40.00
to the carpenter, and that coconut 'tree
must be assessed from now until twenty (20)
years. The assessment means th0 amith",'f
coconuts that will be on that 'erg-.aS&ng
Aub. tree from now till twenty years at .so
much per coconut, so that Honourable Meme-
ber should'pay for all these coconuts, in'
my opinion.. E... LOt_,ACK

The destructive fire which took'- place
on Tuesday mborhing last at th6. store of
Elias Nassief might have been more dica s-
trous if it had occurred at midnight. At
9.am when T Vicited the area, I was sur-
prised to see -that only one building was
destroyed. 4When. you- look at the other
buildings which are attached to it, yt "
escaped the fire due to the quick handling
of our energetic aid skillful firemen 'along
.ith our fire volunteers, I must say they
deserve some praise and 'a handsome gift.,

ON THE EVE OF-DESTRUCTION (fr.col.l)-They
were free to patrol the streets in order
to maintain law and"order.
S) An individual now"wanted by police was.
'Wrongfully sentenced in his absence
since no summons had been served on? him~
so that "e was unable to defend himself

7) It was claimed that most of the land
called GeneVa Estate belongs to the people.
" Mr.Nassief had' contributed nothing bo
the development of the villagers. during
his long tenure.i. ;n their, midst. He was
being forced to leave. "
