JUDGMENT.

rj1iHIS is an appeal from the conviction, sentence
I and crder of the Magistrate of the Eastern
District for an offence of driving a Motor Vehicle
.at La Sagesse road on 31st August, 1956, without
due care and attention. The defenaant, Neville
Abraham, was fined 15.00 and in default of pay-
ment sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment : he was
also disqualified front holding a driving permit for
one month.
The evidence for the prosecution save for that
of a police constable who arrived on the scene
after the accident and took measurements, was
that the defendant was driving T15-15 on the La
Sagesse Road towards Grenville when another
truck T1298 was approaching from the opposite
direction. The defendant slowed down his vehicle,
was on his correct side of the road and pulled to
his left in order to le out of the w\av of the oncom-
ing truck. The truck which vwa driving at a
faster rate than defendant's truck and which was
occupying more than half ot the main road also
swerved to his correct side. The two engines
cleared each other according to the testimony of
one of the witnesses for the prosecution; the on-
coming truck swerved back to the main road and
thus came into contact with the rear of the defen-
dant's truck. The policeman who gave evidence
for the prosecution said the point of impact was
pointed out to him by the defendant and that he
measured brake marks from that point of impact
to where defendant's truck stopped and found the
distance to be 87 feet 10 inches.
The Magistrate in his reasons stated :-"The
witnesses for prosecution established that the
approaching truck was travelling very quickly and
much faster than defendant's vehicle and was
occupying more than half of road. The defendant
states that he first saw the approaching truck
some 60 yards away coming fast. He noticed
that truck was dead centre of the road and would
not go to its side. However, he continued to ap-
proach T1298. keeping more to his left And near
to a drain. He slowed down to about 15 miles
per hour. A collision took place as a result of
which some of the load from defendant's truck fell
on the road, a bag of rice falling beneath the truck.
It was strongly suggested by the prosecution that
this was the real cause for defendant's truck finally
coming to rest. On facts as given in evidence, I
am of opinion that the defendant who states he


was driving then at 15 miles per hour-the brake
impression of 87 feet 10 inches is most significarit
-took no effective means to avoid an accident
which must have been obvious to him from the
manner in which the approaching truck was being
driven, but continued on his way attempting to pass
the said truck. It is also significant that after 'the
collision the defendant's truck proceeded for a dis-
Itance of 99 feet 5 inches before coming to a halt."
It is clear that if the Magistrate accepts the
facts which he states have been established it is
difficult to see how he could reach with reasonable
certainty merely upon the evidence of measure-
ment of the policeman the conclusion that the de-
fendant was guilty of the offence. It may well be
true that there is some significance in the brake
marks htit I am not satisfied that the brake marks
alone could in the circumstances of the case lead
to the conclusion at which the learned Magistrate
arrived. The evidence of all the eye witnesses led
by the prosecution is overwhelmingly in favour
ot the defendant.
The appeal is allowed, the conviction squashed,
and the sentence and order set aside.

REPORT


L-INTRODUCTORY.

PURSUANT to Section 2 of the Commission of Enquiry Ordinance Chapter 46 I was appointed Sole
Commissioner by His Excellency The Governor under the said Ordinance to make diligent enquiries
into and report upon all facts relating to the circumstances surrounding the negotiations which took
place in and after the month of April, 1956, between the Government of Grenada and Dr. James Ernest
Ross with a view to the acquisition by the Government of a plot of land at the angle between Scott
Street and Tryne Alley in the Town of St. George and the property of the said Dr. Ross with particular
reference to the imputations in respect of this transaction contained in a speech made by the Honourable
Alister Norris Hughes in the Grenada Legislative Council on Wednesday the 20th June, 1956, speaking
on the motion for the adjournment.

Il.-VENUE AND SITTINGS.

The Enquiry was held at York House, St. George, Grenada and members of the public were not
excluded.
The Commission sat on the 1st and 2nd days in the month of October, 1956, for the purpose of
taking evidence when a large number of persons were present and followed the proceedings with a keen
and intelligent interest.

III.-WITNESSES.

The following witnesses attended the Enquiry and testified on oath :
1. Miss PALME BUXO, Civil Servant-Stenographer Legislative Council (Acting).
2. Hon. R. O. WILLIAMS, Elected Member and Minister for Social Services.
3. JOHN GORDON ST. BERNARD,Civil Servant, Principal Assistant Secretary to the Minister
for Social Services.
4. CLARENCE RENWICK, Retired Civil Servant and Constructional Supervisor.
5. Dr. JAMES ERNEST Ross, Registered Medical Practitioner and Retired Government Officer.
6. Hon. ALISTER NORRIS HUGHES, Nominated Member of the Legislative Council.
7. CHARLES MCINTYRE, Director of McIntyre Bros. Limited.
8. GEORGE ALEXANDER BAIN, Company Director.
9 Hon. ERIC MATTHEW GAIRY, Elected Member Legislative Council and Minister for Trade
and Production.
10. WALTER KNIGHT, Retired Commissioner and Magistrate of Carriacou.
11. AUDLEY COUSINS, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Grenada.
Dr. James Ernest Ross was recalled as a witness.
The testimony of the aforementioned persons together with the documentary exhibits are appended
hereto. *
IV.-ANALYSIS OF EVIDENCE.

(a) The evidence of Miss Buxo was formal but very important as it laid the foundation
for the Enquiry. This witness put in evidence two (2) speeches made by the Honourable
Hughes in the Legislative Council of Grenada on the 20th and 27th June 1956 respectively.
The Honourable Hughes admitted the accuracy of the report on the speeches made by him.
In the speech of the 20th June, 1956 the Honourable Hugies stated inter alia that
the Honourable Williams. Minister for Social Services, approached him and enquired who
was the owner of a certain piece of land, :he Hono-:rablc -"ghc; supplied the required
information. Sometime after, the Honourable Hughes received .a..tain information and as a
consequence approached Dr. James Ernest Ross. Whilst conversing with him Dr. Ross
revealed that Honourable Gairy had approached him and made certain suggestion with
reference to the sale by him to Government of a portion of land at Scott Street and Tryne
Alley. Briefly the suggestion was that Dr. Ross should ask Government to pay the sum of
$5.000 over and above the price at which Dr. Ross was willing to sell. The said sum of
$5,000 was to be given by Dr. Ross to Honourable Gairy as his "cut" or share in the deal.
Honourable Hughes further stated that it was quite plain that Mr. Gairy was a man
totally unfit to be a Minister and requested the President of the Council to lay what he had
spoken before the G9vernor for investigation.
There can be no doubt that the Honourable Hughes accused Honourable Gairy of being
concerned in some dishonest transaction involving public money and expenditure and that
such conduct was most unbecoming of a Member of the Legislative Council and Minister
of Government. Vide Exhibit P. B. 1.
At the Meeting of the Legislative Council on 27th June the Honourable Hughes sought leave and
obtained the permission of the President of the Council to read a speech. A copy of this speech is
reported in Exhibit P.'B: 2. Mr Hughe, therein states inter alia "that in the light of positive knowledge











" which he possessed with regard to the Minister of Trade and Produc ion in connection with the
"purchase of land by Government from Dr. J. E. Ross involving a sum of $5.000-colour was lent to
" the rumour and that if the truth of his statement could be established then the present holder of this
"office was not a fit and proper person to be a Minister of Government ". Vile Exhibit P.B. 2.
By this speech Mr. Hughes again pressed his charge against the Minister for Trade and Production
and urged Government to investigate the matter which he considered to be of some public importance.
(b) The evidence of Ralph Orlando Williams-Elected Member of Legislative Council
and Minister for Social Services established-
(1) the various stages of the negotiations between Government and Dr. Ross for the
purchase of the land in question as defined on the sketch or plan put in evidence and
marked Exhibit J. E. R. 1.
(2) the reason for the intended acquisition of the land.
(3) the purchase price of $20,000 as confirmed in writing by Dr. Ross.
(4) the request by the Minister for a reduction in the selling price.
(5) the refusal of Dr. Ross to a reduction in the selling price.
(6) the failure to agiee on a selling piice and breaking off of negotiations re : Sale and
purchase of land in question.
Vide Exhibits R. O. W. I.. R. O. W. 2., R. O. W. 3., R. O. W. 4., R. O. W. 5., R. O. W. 6.
The Minister for Social Services admitted a conversation with Honourable Hughes who was or is
the Chairman of the Distiict Board. St. George, Grenada, in order to ascertain the owner of the land
in question. (Refer to the evidence of Mr. Hughes on this point. )
This witness denies saying to anyone that the matter of the purchase of the land in question did not
fall within Mr. Gairy's Ministry.
Vide evidence of Charles Mclntyre.
(c) The evidence of Gordon St. Bernard. Principal Assistant Secretary to the Minister for
Social Services confirms the testimony of Ralph Orlando Williams as to correspondence
passing between the said Minister and Dr. Ross-Exhibit R. O. W. 1.-R. O. W. 6. It
appears that this witness had private talks with Dr. Ross at his office on 28-29 April 1956
when he was told by Dr. Ross that he wanted $24,000 for the land. The Honourable
Williams was not present at any of these private talks and knows nothing at all of the mention
of the sum of $24,000 by Dr. Ross.
(d) Mr. Clarence Rcnwick, Retired Civil Servant and Constructional Supervisor, resiified
as to an incident which took place on or about May 1956, touchir;g the patients of Dr. Ross
and a conversation with DI. Ross.
Mr. Renwick 'rated that he spoke to the doctor about the incident and the doctor gave
as .nd by way of explanation that he was our with Mr. Gairy to look at 'he spot of land
which Governmeht wanted to buy from him and that when he mentioned the figure he wanted
for his land, Mr. Gairy told him to ask for more.
The evidence of this witness is vague and standing by itself can be of no assistance to
-riake any findings thereon u t takien in conjunction with the rest of the evidence as deposed
.o by several witnesses, it may throw some Ight oin he matter and ihe credibility of the
witness Dr. J. E. Ross.
In assessing the truthfulness of this witness it mut be borne in mind that Dr. Ross had the
opportunity of questioning the witness as to the evidence given by him. 1 have to record that Dr. Ross
declined to test the accuracy of evidence given by the witness.
(e) Dr. James Ernest Rosy,Registered Medical Practitioner, and Retiied Government
Officer was a most important witness and his testimony must be care Fully sifted.
Dr Ross is the owner of the land in question and admits the correspondence passing
between him and the Minister for Social Seivices-Exhibits R. O. W. 1 to R. O. W. 6
inclusive.
Di. Ross recollected the incident as related by mle witness Clarence Renwick that one
day in May about 7 to 8 persons stood waiting outside the Doctor's office for a cons ilerable
time. The explanation however given to the Commission by Ross of this inclent differed
from that stated on oath by Claience Renwick. Ross stated that on the day in question he
had gone to the land to await Messrs St. Bernard ani cne Mr. Rae an officer attached to the
Public Works Department who never turned up ; while Renwick stated that Ross told him
that he had gone to the land with Mr. Gairy-Vide Renwick's evidence.
Now Di. Ross remembers speaking to the witness Renwick who he knows and who was
his patient, but what they spoke about he has not the faintest recollection.
When asked if Renwick's evidence was untrue, Dr. Ross stated I will not say that the
"evidence by Renwick is untrue, but he made a remark at the end of hi- evidence which I
do not accept as saying that is "you know now".
Dr. Ross admitted going to Mr. Gairy's yard and speaking to him on the subject matter
of the sale of his land to Government and the price of it. He stated "I spoke to Mr. Gairy
"concerning the land in question. I told him that I was selling my land and wanted $25,000.
He said "Is the land worth it ? If it is worth it, ask for $25,000". That was all the
conversation.
Assuming that the foregoing was all the conversation between Dr. Ross and Mr. Gairy the question
must here be asked-Why should Dr. Ross go to Mr. Gairy and inform him that he was selling his land
to Government and wanted $25,000 ?










Dr. Ross has given no reason or any satisfactory explanation in his evidence as to what prompted
him to make this early morning visit to the home of Mr. Gairy to discuss a matter which was certainly
not private bu of a public nature as far as Mr. Gairy was concerned. The evidence does not establish
that Mr. Gairy and Dr. Ross were visiting friends but merely acquaintances.
If Mr. Gairy was to be consulted or informed about the business transaction with Government
why did not Dr. Ross go to the Office of the Minister, Mr. Gairy ?
The question as to the meeting and conversation between Dr. Ross and the Honourable Gairy
are important factors in the enquiry as will more fully appear when the evidence of Mr. Hughes is
being considered.
Let us continue to examine the evidence of Dr. Ross namely "a couple of days afier (this was
early May) walking up Scott Street Mr. NornisHughes saw me, He called me I stopped. He came to
me. He said that the Minister for Social Services asked him to whom the portion of land at Scott
Street belonged and he told him that it was my property and they should write me. We had some
conversation about the land as regards the price. I told him Yes. I sold the land for $25,000.
Hughes lifted up his hand showing live fingers, and asked me, "What you got man, five ?" I said
"Yes".
The aforementioned statement by Dr. Ross to Mr. Hughes is incorrect and cannot be supported
by the documentary evidence Exhibits R. O. W. 1-R. O. W. 6 which may be considered as silent and
constant witnesses.
The evidence does not disclose that Dr. Ross sold the land in question to the Government of
Grenada or to anyone else, for that matter, for the sum of $25,000 as the doctor well knew at the time
or ought to have known.
The letters Exhibits R. O. W. 4 and R. O. W. 6 show that Dr. Ross was willing to sell at
at $20,000.
Why did Dr. Ross tell Mr. Hughes :
(1) that he sold the land for $25,000.00 ?
(2) in answer to Hughes to say that he got "5" meaning $5,000 ?
The doctor then narrated an incident which took place at the St. George's Club on that said night
where he had gone to have a game of Snooker. Whilst playing he heard remarks being made about
"cuts". It must be noted that Dr. Ross does not place anyone speaking to him or addressing the
remark to him ; but he replied "not me man, you ever hear me giving any cut to anybody".
When the doctor was asked what he understood by the word "cut". He said that it conveyed
to him that he was getting a bigger amount on the offer submitted for the land and that somebody was
to get $5,000.
The witness G. A. Bain gave evidence as to what tcok place at the St. George's Club on the night
in question and what was said by Dr. Ross.
The two versions of the incident differ materially and aie diametrically opposed to each oIhc:.
It is important to note that Dr. Ross did not challenge the statement or the evidence given by Mr. Bain.
Dr. Ross as a witness gave a remarkable story which wa, consistent only with its inconsistencies.
It may well be true as stated by the doctor himself that he was mentally d sturbed at the time over
the illness of his wife who was then in th:e United States of America-and :hat his recollection was not
too good at the time.
The witness Dr. Ross had .to be recalled to make clear some point of evidence given by the witness
Audley Cousins, Assistant Supei intendent of Police. In the course of examination, Dr. Ross made
the surprising admission that he wanted to convey to the officer that there was a "cut" of S5,000 on the
sale of his property ; and again in answer to a question put to him by Mr. Gairy-the witness admitted
that he did tell Mr. Hughes about the cut of $5,000, but that he spoke sarcastically.
On review of the evidence of the witness the Commission is of the opinion that the witness was
weak, vacillating, talkative and unreliable.
(f) Next in importance is the evidence of the witness Alister Norris Hughes Nominated
Member of the Legislative Council and his testimony mist be subjected to the same scrutiny
and glare of searchlignt as that of Dr. Ross.
The witness admitted ,he accuracy of his reported speeches in the Legislative Council
on the 20th June and 27th June 1956 as contained in Exhibits P. B. 1 and P. B. 2.
Mr. Hughes narrated that he had a conversation with the Honourable Williams
-Minister of Social Services-in the month of April. (This statement was corroborated
by Mr. Williams).
Continuing Mr. Hughes stated that early May he spoke to Dr. Ross touching the land in
question as follows : "Ernest, the Government is interested in buying a bit of your land".
Ross replied, Yes man, Gairy came to me" (note it is Gairy going to Ross not Ross going
to Gairy) and asked how much I want for the land", Ross said "I know the land is worth
$20,000 but since Government want to buy it I tell him $25,000".
Dr. Ross said that Gairy said to him. "How about asking $30,000 and shut your
mouth", putting his hand to his mouth as much as to say keep your mouth shut.
In other words the witness is saying that Ross told him that Mr. Gairy suggested that he
(Ross) should increase the selling price by $5,000 and say nothing about it to anyone.
There can be no suggestion that there was never a meeting or conversation between Dr. Ross and
the witness Hughes re : the sale of the land to Government and the price of it nor can it be said that the
introduction of Gairy's name into the conversation was an invention or a mere figment of the brain on











the part of Hughes for the simple reason that Dr. Ross admitted the meeting, the conversation about
the sale of his land, the price asked for the land and the mention of the name of Mr. Gairy (Vide Ross'
evidence). What is disputed-is what was said and the gesture (if any) by the parties respectively
at the time.
It is therefore necessary to put the two versions side by side and examine them carefully.
On review there appears a conflict of evidence on certain material particulars and which cannot be
reconciled by any process of human ingenuity. Let us give a few examples :-
(1) Dr. Ross in his evidence stated, he went to Mr. Gairy's premises and there spoke to
him about his willingness to sell his land to Government and the price he wanted.
Hughes stated that Ross told him that Gairy went to him and asked how much he
wanted for the land, that he (Ross) knew the land was only worth $20,000 but as
Government wanted it, he told him $25,000.
(2) Dr. Ross stated Gairy said to him after he had told him the price of the land. "Is it
worth it, if it is worth it, then ask for $25,000."
Hughes stated Dr. Ross told him that Mr. Gairy had told him to ask for $30,000 (an
increase of $5,000) and shut his mouth.
(3) Dr. Ross stated that it was Hughes who put his hand showing five fingers and asked,
What you got man "5" and I said "Yes".
Hughes stated that Dr. Ross told him, Gairy said "Shut your mouth" and that he Dr.
Ross put his hand to his mouth as much as to say, keep your mouth shut ............
and that he was waiting for Gairy to come back".
The version of the conversation as related by these two (2) witnesses differ so much and so vitally
that in the quest for reasonableness and truth I must perforce look to the evidence of the remaining
witnesses for assistance and guidance.
(g) Charles McIntyre a Director of McIntyre Bros. Limited, Grenada, and brother-in-law
of Dr. Ross came forward to give evidence, was examined and then questioned. He deposed
that in the presence of his brother Colin, his brother-in-law discussed the sale of the land in
question to Government and told him that Gairy had suggested to him to ask for a sum of
money in excess of the amount that he was asking for his land and that such excess sum was
to be Gairy's cut on the deal. The witness further stated that Ross informed him that the
Minister for Social Services had expressed annoyance because Gairy had interfered with a
matter which was not within the scope of his Ministry.
The witness on being questioned by Mr. Gairy to name the figure the doctor told him,
expressed great caution but said that as best he recollected the figures mentioned were
$20,000 and $25,000. The sum of $5,000 was to be the "cut".
It may be of interest to note that Dr. Ross questioned this witness but did not challenge or attempt
to dispute the veracity of the witness on the alleged statement of Mr. Gairy and the "cut".
This witness impressed me as being candid and gave his evidence in a convincing and straight-
forward manner. His credibility was not shaken.
I accepted his evidence.
(h) George Alexander Bain, a Company Director, gave evidence as to the conversation
with Dr. Ross at the St. George's Club after a game of "Snooker" with Dr. Ross.
He stated that Dr. Ross told him there was some possibility of Government purchasing
some land from him and that he had spoken to Gairy about the matter and that he wanted
$25,000 but Gairy told him "don't be silly, ask for S30,000 and he (Gairy) would fix matters
for him.
This witness was open to be questioned and his evidence tested by anyone who would avail himself
of this right.
I called upon Dr. Ross to question if he was disputing th: evidence of the witness. In reply
Dr. Ross said, that he had no questions to ask the witness.
The evidence of this witness touching the conversation with Dr. Ross stands unchallenged and
therefore must be accepted as true. This witness also impressed me that be was a witness of truth.
(i) Eric Matthew Gairy, Elected Member of Legislative Council and Minister for Trade
and Production deposed that one morning in the month of May 1956 Dr. Ross called on him
at his home about 9 o'clock. The doctor apologised for not attending a Social function
held by him and then proceeded to inform him that he (the doctor) wanted to sell Government
a piece of land and would like his help.
Asstmning the above statement to be true, the conduct of Dr. Ross becomes increasingly difficu It
to comprehend.
On a perusal of the letters Exhibits R. O. W. 1 to R. O. W. 4 inclusive it would appear that matters
between Dr. Ross and the Minister for Social Services were moving smoothly and to the satisfaction of
the doctor as far as the price to be paid for the land.
The sum of $20,000 was the figure fixed by Dr. Ross and the Minister for Social Services requested
him to confirm the price in writing, which the doctor did Vide Exhibit R. O. W. 4. -
The question te be answered is, what was worrying or causing Dr. Ross anxiety (if any) early in
month of May as to cause him to go to Mr. Gairy's house to seek his assistance ?
Dr. Ross in his evidence touching the admitted visit to Mr. Gairy stated that "I told him I was
selling my land and wanted $25,000."











It now follows that the evidence given by Mr. Gairy and the evidence: given by Dr. Ross on this
point cannot be reconciled and is open to conjecture as to the leal intent and purpose of the visit by
Dr. Ross to Mr. Gairy and what was spoken.
The remaining portion of Mr. Gairy's evidence was to the effect that he had no time to listen to or
spend with Dr. Ross and dismissed him rather summarily with the assurance that the Government of
Grenada would not rob him.
Mr. Gaily stated that he considered the remarks made by Mr. Hughts in his speech in the Legis-
lative Council or1 the 20th June, 1956 to be offenmve an.- defamatory as he was a Minister of Govern-
ment. He denied having spoken or suggested at any time to Dr. Ross to ask for more money for his
land so that he could get a "cut" of $5,000.
This witness was asked if he could give any reason why Dr. Ross should seek his help or assistance
re : the sale of his property to Government. Mr. Gairy replied-that h" was the Senior Elected Member
of Government and Leader of the Party in power..................... and as the leader of the
Party in power he had certain qualified influence in Government. When asked if his Ministers voted
as he directed them Mr. Gairy replied he did not direct Ministers how to vote.
Mr. Gairy declared that he would not be surprised if Dr. Ross fabricated something which is not
true. He considered the doctor to be a loquacious man.
The evidence of this witness was plausible.
(j) Walter Knight, Retired Civil Servant and ex-Commissioner and Magistrate of
Carriacou deposed as to a conversation with Dr. Ross re : the sale of the land in question.
He stated that about 5-6 months ago Dr. Ross told him that Government wanted to purchase
a lot of land from him and that if Government wanted t--Government will have to pay him
his price.
It may here be useful to note that Dr. Ross in letter Exhibit R. O. W. 3 expressed himself in the like
words "I am quite agreeable to its sale to Government at my price .....................
Proceeding, Dr. Ross said he wanted $20,000 that he needed money as his wife was ill
in the U.S.A.
The witness told Dr. Ross that his price was a stiff one. Ross replied that Mr. Gairy
had told him to raise the price to $25,000 and that $5,000 was for Gairy for having put through
the deal; but that he did not want to do such a thing.
The witness stated that he told Dr. Ross that it was a simple matter, that "you are selling
and the person is buying ; whatever you get that is the price for the land and you do not have
to give anybody anything" and witness concluded with this advice to the doctor "Good Luck,
get your money, but don't pay out any before you get it".
It must be mentioned that Dr. Ross did not question this witness on his evidence. The evidence
of this witness on the main issue was unchallenged and uncontradicted.
This witness gave his evidence in an impressive manner and by his demeanour convinced me as to
the quality of his evidence.
I accepted his evidence as true.
(k) Audley Cousins-Assistant Superintendent of Police, Grenada-deposed as to the
refusal of Dr. Ross to give him a statement in writing. He visited Dr. Ross at his office
on two occasions on 10th July 1956 the first time at 10 a.m. not by appointment and again a
1 p.m. by appointment.
In the course of a conversation with the doctor at 1 p.m. he was able to elicit certain infor-
mation which he reduced into writing within 1/2 hour from the time Dr. Ross spoke to hlm.
This was done for purpose of submitting a report to the Honourable Attorney-General.
The witness stated that he showed Mr. Hughes this report. Hughes read the report and
stated that Dr. Ross was not speaking the truth. Report is Exhibit A.C.-1.
There was a dispute between Mr. Hughes and this witness as regards Exhibit A.C. 1.
Was this Exhibit shown to Mr. Hughes and read by him ? or-
Was it some other document-an unsigned statement of Dr. Ross ?
I am inclined to the view that on this point the Assistant Superintendent of Police gave the correct
version and that Mr. Hughes was genuinely mistaken when he said Exhibit A.C. 1 was not the docu-
ment shown to and read by him.
I accepted the evidence of this witness.
