OFFICIAL GAZETTE, THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 1953.

In the Supreme Court of the Windward Islands
and the Leeward Islands
Dominica Circuit
(Appellate Jurisdiction)
No. 2 of 1951
BETWEEN
TOMMY MARK AND RAWLE MARK,
Appellants
AND
FRAZILLIA CELESTIN,
Respondent
BEFORE MR. JUSTICE DATE.
C. A. H. DUPIGNY FOR THE APPELLANTS
THE RESPONDENT IN PERSON
The 31st day of August, 1951
DATE, J. : THIS is an appeal against a decision of the Magistrate of
District F convicting the appellants of stealing four breadfruits,
valued at thirty two cents, and ordering the appellant Tommy Mark to pay
a fine of fifty dollars and his son, the appellant Rawle Mark, to pay a fine
of one dollar and costs-seventy-two cents.
Owing to the inadequacy of the notes of evidence transmitted by the
District Court, it was necessary to summon the trial Magistrate to give
evidence in this Court. The evidence thus obtained, when read in conjunc-
tion with the Magistrate's notes, discloses that the land on which the bread-
fruits were picked belonged to the late St. Cyr Celestin who, by his last
will and testament duly probated, appointed the appellant Tommy Mark to
be his sole executor and left part of his land to Tommy and part to the y '
respondent. 'h"
The picking of the breadfruits, the subject of the complaint before the( I A 0
Magistrate, was not done in any clandestine manner. Tommy, assisted by
Rawle, picked the fruit openly, in assertion of what he claimed to be his
rights in administering the estate, and there is no evidence whatever indi-
cative of mens rea. If the respondent has been wronged, it is clearly a
civil wrong she has suffered, and her remedy must be sought in civil pro-
ceedings.
The appeal is allowed with costs-three guineas-and the order made
by the Magistrate set aside.
