ON APPEAL FROM THE MAGISTRATE'S COURT


Appellant Colony of Antigua.
No. 1411960


Respondent


JUDGMENT
-Dated 25th January, 1961.
Mr. Phillips, counsel for the appellant, urges
that (a) there was not sufficient evidence of iden-
tification and (b) that there was no evidence of
asportation. He referred to the facts.
This Court is of the opinion and so finds that
there was sufficient evidence on which the Magis-
trate could have come to his decision on the points
raised. It sees no reason for interfering with
the Magistrate's decision.
Appeal dismissed with 3 guineas costs to the
respondent.

Appellant

Respondent


JUDGMENT
Dated 25th January, 1961.

In this case the father is asking for the custody
of the children. The Magistrate decided that
custody should be given to the mother; because of
this decision, there is an appeal. The chief ground
of appeal is that the Magistrate did not take into
account the welfare of the children. That is not
shown by the Magistrate's reasons where he says:-

I was satisfied that if the wife were
given regular and adequate means of
support she would be perfectly capable
of looking after the welfare of the children
and I gave judgment accordingly in her
favour."

In view of this, this Court cannot see how it
can be argued that the Magistrate did not take the
welfare of the children into consideration in arriving
at his decision.

The appeal is dismissed. No Order as to costs.
