The public can hardly be blamed
for its suspicion of Secret Police.
Those who read,lirten or have hiad
near-at-hand experience of the sig-
ister activities of these anonyrmoUs
men, often co-opted not so much to
serve the Police Force but to prop
up the rulers of States, feel a
"natural horror. Events in Grenada
have deepened this mistrust,bring-
ing it closer home than rumours
from Spain, recent Portugal, the
USSR and Ireland.

Special Police, men who respond
to the call of duty when their own
countryfolk are in trouble or dan-
ger, and who give their time free,
(and much of their private lives).-
hav- -'T zt %- -.' ,- i- ---- ..,
dreaded Secret Police save anony-
mity,-and in a small island no-onq
is anonymous for long. The men who
cane forward here after the pill-
age and burning of property and
consequent unrest did so from hig1;
motives, They have helped to pro-
tect citizens' belongings, dimin-.
ish crime and restore order in
co-operation vrith the Police Forcq.
We should cormmend them for this.
Let us not regard them as perman-
ent vigilaxnten or fellows playing
at cops and robbers,,but TH.AhK THME.

The Kubuli Dance Company led by Raymond
Lawrence will be celebrating its third Anniver.
sary from Saturday May 25th to June 2nd this
The programme of activities of the Company
includes a show called "Kubuli Mania" to be
held at the St. Gerard a Hall on Thursday May
3oth at 9.30 p.m. At, this show the Company
hopes to perform thirteen of its best dances frovr
its repertoire. The show will also feature The
Siffleur Montagne Chorale, La Jeune Etoille Cho
rale and Liquid Ice.
Other activities of the Company are a special
mass at the Roseau Cathedral at 7 p.m. on Satur
day May 25th, a panel discussion on the topic
"Our culture and bow it can be developed",
along with some solo dance performances at the
Pominica Grammar School on Monday May
1th at 8 p.m.

A report on the future of th.o.ld
market Square in Rosoau has boon pre-
sented to the Rosead Town Council by.
the Dominica Conservation Association.
The report was compiled by Lehnox
Hoiychurch and includes a brief hisbo-
ri4Sal and environmental study of the
old market square as well as recommend-
ations towards the development of the
In the 10-page reporter' EHonychurch
points out that the square is an impcft-
ant open space in the centto of our
capital and should be developed as a
public area for the behe'fit of its citij
zens. Recalling the important part that
the' aket has played in the history of:'
3Waa*U,he report goes on to show how
the square can be de bloped ihto a hand-
some and colourful Annxent in the heart
of fhe town.
It presents plans for a hand traft
centre and a sidewalk "br in ti'e-large
covered area. The report states
"There is no permanent place-for the
growing number of young craftsmen to
work. Because of rising unemployment
they have been thrown on their own re-
sources. Some purse their handcrafts

situation especially in crowded homes.
With :a little alteration, part 6f the
marketI pavilion could 'be utilised as a
centre for these young craftsmen'
Whe report suggests" land&caping the
square and the erection'of a performance
platform for free shows, public meetings
and other activities.. This' week, copies
of the report are being.distributed to
individuals, orgahisatiohs and members
of the. business sector in a drive to
motivate and inform the co6mmuhity. In
his forewArd to the-'report, Lenhox
Honychurch notes thkt this project can
either be a perpetual tribute to' our
cooperation and interest or a 16sson in
our lack of concern, .and civic pride.
"The greatest cities in the world
have such public centres,' it concludes,
"and it is our duty to'make sure that
our capital too can develop such. a place
and that the future of tLa Place' will
be ensured." .

NAIROBI: the Commonri
wealth magistrates' con-!
rerencefjdisciissed various
Tegaaanid political aspects
of the, administration of
justice.. a subject of great'
social and political signif-
icance to Africa.
The third Commonwealth
magistrates conference, which;
was officially opened by'
Kenya's Attorney*General,
Mr. Charles Njonjo. brought!
together more than 1.000 lead-i
ing personalities in the admi-;
nistration of Justice in Corn-:
monwealth countries. and for.
six' days. they have exchanged
experiences and views, which.
if implemented, Will form the,
basis of a strong magistracy in
the Commonwealth.
Welcoming the distinguished
participants. President Mzeev
Jomo Kenyatta. who is himself
a strong believer in the
independence of the judiciary..
said Kenya. like other Com-
monwealth countries, was well
aware ot tnea-mportance 6 a
strong and independent magis-
tracy as one' of the corner-
stones of an effective system of
justice, and of the maintenancei
of law and order.
The participants. who
included magistrates. justices
of appeal. chief justices and
judges from all over the Com-.
monwealth heard the attorney-i
general of the host country:
relate attempts being made byi
Kenya to Africanise the judi-,
clar, balic')y as. possible

ing that ktandrds '"are noti

Mr Njonjo told his learned'
friends:, "When the subject'
concerns the vitally important,
one of administration of jus-
tice, we cannot afford to take
risks, and therefore the train-;
ing of kenyan advocates to.
take up appointments on the:
magisterial bench is. a subjecti
which is of the greatest con-
cern to me rersonallv..."

Mr Njonjothen recalled Thi
background of all the Com-
monwealth countries, which,i
he said. share many interests
and have a common legal
background. although the ways
of approach may differ from'
one country to another. He
welcomed the exchange of'
views and experience gained,
through the association and" its
conferences as being of parti-I
cular benefit to lawyers and'
those concerned with the admi-.
nistration of juice.
;' The delegates were
honoured to have with them
the man whose judgments have.
been studied, discussed, criti-
vised. admired and even:
praised by the judiciary as well
as members of the Bar
:throughout the Common-'
wealth. whose wealth of;
experience was of special sig-
nificance to the conference.
Lord -Denning. then Master of
the. Rolls in England,was des-
cribed as "a hero to all law

Addressing his colleagues.
Lord Dennipg stressed the fun-'
damental principle of an.
,independent judiciary and also!
- spoke of the extraordinarily
difficult nositidn. And great'
responsibilityy of judges' 'in
Africa. particularly in revolu-
tionary times. In a majoi
address to the delegates. Lorc
Denning warned: "We must
not regard political conse
quences when dispensing jus.
tice. Let justice be done, and
be seen to be done even if it
costs heaven...."

Speaking from his own per-
sonal experience. Lord Den-
ning said the role of judges
and lawyers may bring them in
conflict with those in authority
ili the ~tate "'and that is why it
is of the highest importance
that judges should be indepen-
.dent and impartial."

Turning to the role of judges
in African c untries that have
experienced revolutions. either
by peaceful mi-ans, by force of
arms or by co.ip d'etat -where,

He went on: "Judges stand
between the individual and the
state, protecting the individual
from any interference with his
'freedom which is not justified
by law. For the judges to be
independent and impartial.
they must be secure in their
offices and not liable to be
removed at the pleasure of the
government. Judges must also

"bee4, however. It would seem that
the pasel discussion on the very
important topic "Class in the Dom-

thus far. Panelists included Pa-

Aicholas and Julius 'SagsoZ., A
fourth panelist, Mr.. Belgrave Rob-

The panel, for the most part,
failed to come to grips with the
topic under discussion; and only
Mr, Sampson seemed to make arq
pointed references to the local

local class situation. Mr. Nich-
la-apeared too benat on goi '
through anx academic and theoret-
ical exercise, and failed to come
to grips with the local dilemma.
Ia fact, Mr. icholas sparked off
a heated exchange, when he was
understood to suggest that the,
Dominican society was a classless
society. Oddly enough,he insisted
on defending that posit ion, ignor-
ing the very real consequences of
