268 THE ANTIGUA, MONTSERRAT & VIRGIN ISLANDS GAZETTE. [December 8, 1960
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE WINDWARD ISLANDS AND LEEWARD ISLANDS
ON APPEAL FROM THE MAGISTRATE'S COURT DISTRICT "A"


Appeal No. 4/1958.
Between:-



Before LEWIS J.


ANTIGUA CIRCUIT.

JYME FABARA
and
EDMUND JOSEPH BLAIZE
( Ag. Supt. of Police)


)efendant/Appella nt

Complainant/Respondent


C. E. FRANCIS for appellant
Legal Assistant (C. O. PHILLIPS) for respondent.
JUDGMENT
(February 4, 1959.)


The appellant was convicted by the Magis-
trate for District A on the 25th day of
September, 1958 of driving a motor vehicle on
Market Street without due care and attention,
contrary to section 53 of the Vehicles and Road
Traffic Ordinance, No. 5 of 1946. and fined $20.
He appealed against his conviction on October
2nd 1-958 and in his notice of appeal the appellant
gave as his sole ground of appeal that the con-
viction is against the weight of evidence."
I am satisfied that there is evidence on which
the magistrate could have come to the conclusion
to which he did, and I would have dismissed the
appeal immediately after I had heard the argu-
ments of counsel but for the fact that I wished
to make certain observations on the wording of
the appellant's ground of appeal and as to the
duties of this Court sitting as a Court of appeal
from the decisions of magistrates in criminal mat-
ters, as there appears to be some misapprehension
as to the exact function of this Court in such
appeals.
Section 175 (1) of The Magistrates Code of
Procedure Act, Chapter 61 (referred to hereinafter
as "the Act" ) provides that where an appeal is
by motion the appellant shall serve a notice of
appeal on the magistrate and the other party of
his intention to appeal, and that the notice shall
contain his reasons for appeal. Subsection (2)
provides that the notice may set forth as grounds
of appeal the several reasons mentioned therein,
and no other. Among the reasons listed in this
subsection as a ground of appeal is that set forth
in paragraph (i) which reads that the decision
is unreasonable or cannot be supported having
regard to the evidence."
Counsel for ihe appellant admitted that he
was challenging the magistrate's decision on the
ground that there was no evidence to justify the
verdict. He also said he was questioning the
magistrate's findings of fact on the ground that
they were unreasonable and therefore the decision
ought not to be allowed to stand. If this was his
intention, then it was his duty to allege and show,
if he could, in the words of the Act, that the
verdict is unreasonable or cannot be supported
having regard to the evidence."


In Aladesuru and the Queen (1956) A. C. 49,
the West African Court of Appeal in a criminal
appeal in Nigeria struck out one of an appellant's
grounds of appeal ihich alleged that the
" judgment is against the weight of evidence."
The section of the Nigerian law under which the
appellant brought his appeal follows the language
of the English Criminal Appeal Act 1907 which
is that The Court of appeal on any such appeal
(from the Supreme Court) against conviction
shall allow the appeal if they think that the ver-
dict should be set aside on the ground that it is
unreasonable or cannot be supported having re-
gard to the evidence." It will be observed that
the reason for ap! eal mentioned in section 175
(2) (i) of the Act is in language similar to that
of the English Criminal Appeal Act and it follows
that the decision of the Privy Council in the
West African case quoted above is absolutely
binding on this court as it is a decision on a section
of an enactment which corresponds exactly to a
provision of the local law.
In Aladesuru's case the West African Court
of Appeal had in that case granted the appellant
leave to appeal on grounds which included the
ground of appeal it subsequently struck out. The
application for leave to appeal was treated as a
notice of appeal and when the appeal came on for
hearing the Court struck out the ground of ap-
peal which alleged that the judgment is against
the weight of evidence."
On appeal to the Privy Council, it was con-
tended for the appellants, inter alia, (1) that the
action of the \West African Court of Appeal in
striking out this ground of appeal amounted to a
denial of justice, and that in any event the
appellants should have granted leave to amend
this ground, and (2) that the words of the English
Statute riz. that the verdict should be set aside
on the ground that it is unreasonable or cannot
be supported having regard to the evidence "
have been interpreted in England as meaning
" against the weight of evidence."
Lord Tucker, who delivered the opinion of
the Board, referred to the action of the West
African Court of Appeal in striking out the
ground of appeal in question and said: "in their









December 8, 1960 THE ANTIGUA MONTSERRAT & VIRGIN ISLANDS GAZETTE. 269


judgment they (i.e. the West African Court of
Appeal) referred to the difference between civil
and criminal appeals in this respect ", and quoted
the following remarks made by that court-" This
difference has been pointed out by this court times
without number and so we have no sympathy
for any appellant who still puts up a wrong
ground of appeal. Even if we had granted an
amendment of the ground of appeal we would not
have been disposed to hear argument on the
facts'." In commenting on the action of the
West African Court of Appeal in thus striking
out the offending ground of appeal Lord Tucker
said "The court was entitled to require strict
observance of the provisions of the statute so as
to put a stop to attempts, which had evidently
become prevalent, to review the findings of facts
by the Supreme Court."
With regard to the second submission made
on behalf of the appellants in Aladesuru's case,
Lord Tucker said It will be observed that the
language of the West African Court of Appeal
Ordinance follows that of the English Criminal
Appeal Act, 1907, under which it has long been
established that the appeal is not by way of re-
hearing as in civil cases on appeals from a Judge
sitting alone but is a limited appeal which
precludes the Court from reviewing the evidence
and making its own valuation thereof. The
position is correctly stated at page 346 of the 33rd
Edition of Archbold's Criminal Pleading Evidence
and Practice as follows: In order to succeed an
appellant must show in the words of the statute
" that the verdict is unreasonable and cannot be
supported having regard to the evidence." It is
not a sufficient ground of appeal to allege that
the verdict is against the weight of evidence'."
The Board in rejecting the argument that the
words the verdict should be set aside on the
ground that it is unreasonable or cannot be sup-
ported having regard to the evidence" were
treated in England as synonymous with against
the weight of evidence ', made these remarks:
"A number of cases, most of them from the
early English Criminal Appeal Reports, were
cited by counsel for the appellants in the hea !nott(s
of which the phrase "against the weight of
evidence occurs with reference to applications
to the Court of Criminal Appeal. It was sub-
mitted that this phrase had thus been treated as
synonymous with unreasonable or which cannot
be supported having regard to the evidence."
There can be no doubt that this phrlse is
inaccurate and is one which cannot properly be
substituted for the words of the statute, although
it has in one or two cases found its way into the
judgments, though always with qualifying lan-
guage ", and speaking with ,prtictul:r reference
to the position in Nigeria Lord Tucker said: It
should by now be appreciated that the Nigerian
Ordinance gives no appeal on such ground."
In view of the similarity of the language of
section 175 (2) (1) of the Act to that of the West,
African Court of Appeal Ordinance and the


English Criminal Appeal Act 1907 the opinion
of the Board in Aladesuru's case constitutes an
authoritative interpretation of the section of
the Act in question and is binding in this Court.
This being so, this Court will not in future enter-
tain as a ground of appeal in criminal matters
the inaccurate expression "that the decision is
against the weight of evidence where the ground
of appeal intended to be alleged is that specified
in section 175 (2) (i) of the Act.
Now as to the jurisdiction of this court,
sitting as a court of appeal from the decision of
magistrates, the position is I think, well estab-
lished by authority. A court of appeal will not
interfere with the findings of fact of a trial Judge
or magistrate unless there is no evidence to
support his conclusion, or unless his conclusion
from the facts are such that no court could rea-
sonably have found as he (lid, in other words
unless his decision was a perverse one in the
light of the evidence. See Brace Girdle r Oxley
(1947) 1 All E. R. 126, and also the remarks of
Denning L. J. in Driscoll v Church Commissioners
for England (1956) 3 W. L. R 990 at 1002.
In Watt v Thomas (1947) 1 All E. 1i. 583,
Viscount Simon made certain observations as to
the circumstances in which an appellate Court
may be justified in taking a different view on
facts from that of a trial Judge. He said:
"Apart from the classes of cases in which the
powers of the Court of Appeal are limited to
deciding a question of law (e.g. on a case stated or
on an appeal under the County Courts Acts) an
appellate Court has, of course, jurisdiction to
review the record of the evidence in order to
determine whether the conclusion reached on that
evidence should stand, but this jurisdiction has to
be exercised with caution. If there is no evidence
to support a particular conclusion (and this is
really a question of law) the appellate court will
not hesitate so to decide, but if the evidence as a
whole can reasonably he regarded as justifying
the conclusion arrived at the trial, and especially
if that conclusion had been arrived at one con-
flictini testimony by a tribunal which saw and
heard the witnesses, the appellate court will bear
in mind that it has not enjoyed this opportunity
and that the view of the trial Judge as to where
credibility lies is entitled to great weight. This
is not to say that the Judge of first instance can
l)e treated as infallible in determining which side
is telling the truth or is refraining from exaggera-
tion. Like other tribunals, he may go wrong on
a question of fact, but it is a cogent circumstance
that a Judge of first instance, when estimating
the value of verbal testimony, has the advantage
(which is denied to courts of appeal) of hearing
the witnesses before him and observing the man-
ner in which their evidence is given." Then he
went on to say that this opinion reproduced in
effect, the view previously expressed in the House
of Lords by Viscount Sankey in Powell and wife v
heliealham Manor v Nursing /lmne (1935) A. C.
250, and he referred with approval to the judgment
of Lord Green M. R. in Yuill v Yuill (1945) 1 All









270 THE ANTIGUA MONTSERRAT & VIRGIN ISLANDS GAZETTE. December 8, 1960


E. R. 185. Finally on this question, Viscount
Simon said that he agreed with Lord President
Inglis when he expounded the view in Kinnell v
Peebles 17 R (Court of Sessions) 416 that the true
rule is that a court of appeal should attach the
greatest weight to the opinion of the Judge who
saw the witnesses and heard their evidence', and,
consequently should not disturb a judgment of fact
unless they are satisfied that it is unsound."
Applying the principles laid down by Viscount
Simon in Watt v Thomas (supra) it would be a
misuse of language to say in this case that there
was no evidence on which the magistrate could
arrive at his decision, or that his decision was a per-
verse one in the circumstances. There was evidence
that the appellant did not halt at the stop sign, but
this the appellant denied. The witness James said in
examination in chief: When I saw him (appel-
lant) he was by the Stop sign driving slowly. When
I saw him he was a little in front of the stop sign
and he increased his speed and Shadrach tried to
steer off on the left side and defendant (appellant)
struck him." He. also said in cross-examination:
" When I saw defendant (appellant) he was moving
away from the stop sign. When he was increasing
his speed we had not quite reached the intersec-


tion." On the other hand the appellant said he
stopped at the stop sign and looked up and down
High Street and as he saw no traffic he proceeded
across Market Street. He first saw the vehicle with
which he came into contact when he was about three
quarters of the way across High Street when this
vehicle just shot right in front of him. The
appellant admitted in cross-examination that he did
not know if the van came from down High Street"
or if it was parked in that street-a statement to.
which the magistrate said he attached great signifi-
cance.
The testimony in this case was conflicting and
it was for the magistrate to decide after seeing and
hearing the witnesses where in his opinion the truth
lay. He came to a conclusion adverse to the ap-
pellant and found the charge against him proved.
This decision can reasonably be justified on the
evidence which was before the magistrate and
accordingly there is no ground for disturbing his
findings.
The appeal is dismissed with four guineas costs.

Puisne Judge.
