JUDGMENT.


1. The three appellants appeal from a
decision of the Magistrate, District C ", cotiiicii!!
them that on the 21sc day of August, 1950, in dhe
town of Basset',rro watlc, i an i beset the bu.ine-.,s
premises of Wailtr Rici"i s onl tle Ba it a;id
wrongfully antd widim nt l-d autiloritv with a view
to compel him to I, an act which le imd a legal
right to abstain from doing, tlit is to re-employ
ini his bakery certain wworkinen previously dis-
charged by hi. Older ,tion 6 (c) (4) of the
Trade Unions Act No. 10/19h9.
2. The complaint against the appellants was
that you and each of yon on the 21st day of
August, 1950, at Basseterre, in the parisli of
St. (eorge, in the Presidency of St. Christopher-
Nevis and Anguilla, did unlawfully watch and
beset the place of business of \alter Richards, at
the Bay Road," contrary to the sub-section men-
tioned above in the conviction.
3. A cominarison of tl(e complaint and
conviction reveals that, apart fromtl the duplicity
involved in the words watched and beset ", the
conviction has Ieen correctly drawn up; hut that
the complaint lacks tile words wrongfully and
without legal authority ". and that it does not
disclose any offence. It is not an offence to watch
or beset a place of business; it is an offence only
when it is done with a view to compel some person
to abstain from doing cr to do some act which he
has a legal right to do or abstain from doing.
A person charged under the sub-section is entitled
to know the name of the person whom it was
contemplated to compel, and what it was that that
person was to be compelled to do or abstain from
doing.
4. This was the milnn ground of appeal
argued by Mr. D)ivis oin half of the appellants.
He cited authorities, inclnlinig R. V. McKenzie
1892, 2 Q.B. 51.9; which supported him in his
contention that the irregularity was such that it
vitiated the conviction. 1, urged that the learned
Magistrate erred in law in proceeding with a
complaint of this kind; t'Ait it was unfair to the
appellants to be asked to meet a complaint which
did not allege anyv offence and which omitted tihe
particulars which were tie foundation of the
complaint; that what the learned magistrate actually
did was to hear the evidence and then select the
particulars which he considered proved.
5. Mr. Boon, for the respondent, relied on
sections 191 and 192 of tlih Magistrate's Code of
Procedure Act (as amended by Act No. 10 of 1945.)
These sections are lengthy and I do not set them


out verbatim. Section 191 gives this Court the
power to amend a defective complaint and to
proceed as if the defect, omiission or inistakei tad
nolr xisrd. Section 192 provides that on appeal
:)o objection shall ne taken or allowed to a com-
plaint fr any defect therein in substance or in
form: but if the defect appears to the Court to be
such that the appellant has been deceived or
misled, the Court may
(a) refer the cause back to the Magistrate;
(b) reverse the decision; or
(c) make any other order which justice
requires.
(. There can be no doubt that the complaint
was about as defective as acoimplaint could be; but,
having regard to section 192 I have to decide
whether the defect was such that the appellants
were deceived or misled. Frcom the evidence led
in their behalf at the hearing before the Magistrate
it is clear that they were aware that some work-
men had been dismissed bv the respondent; that
the respondent had refused to re-instate them;
that they themselves then picketed the respondent's
bakery carrying placards with the words Fifteen
men forced out of work, you will be the next.
No, work, no bread. Will you still buy here ? ".
When the defective complaint was read to them,
were they misled by the duplicity of being charged
with both watching and besetting, instead of one
or the other; or by the absence of the words
" wrongfully and without legal authority "; or by
the omission to acquaint them with the most
important of the ingredients of the offence, namely,
the view with which they were alleged to have
acted. I do not think they were misled by the
duplicity or the absence of the words above referred
to; but as regards the other matter the position
was that until the learned Ilagitrate read his
judgment, they were not made aware of what was
actually complained of.
7. I am of opinion th thtthis defect was such
that the appellants must have been misled. I
order that the conviction be set aside and that the
case he sent back to the Magistrate with directions
to amend the complaint in accordance with what
has been said above; and to correct the duplicity
involved in the words watch and beset "; and to
re-hear the complaint; and to give judgment in
accordance with law. In view of this order I do
not express any opinion on the issues raised by the
other grounds of appeal. The appellants will have
the costs of this appeal fixed at 3 13. in the case
of each appellant, i.e., 10 19.

JUDGMENT.


1. The respondent was charged before the
Magistrate of District C at Basseterre that he
did unlawfully assault and beat one JOSEPH
SUTTON, a member of the Leeward Islands Police
Force, whilst in the execution of his duty. lHe
was acquitted; and this is an appeal by way of
special case to this Court.

2. The facts found by the learned Magistrate
were as follows, occurring in the following order:


(i) SUTTON, the police
HILTON MASON, a
Respondent, on the
his baton.


officer, struck
son of the
shoulder with


(ii) SAMUEL MASON, the respondent,
appeared on the scene, and asked
SUTTON why he had hit his son.
(iii) SUTTON, still with his baton in his
hand, said to the Respondent you
too and pushed him.
(iv) The Respondent slapped SUTTON.
(v) SUTTON raised his baton to hit the
Respondent.
(vi) The Respondent drew a knife from
his side.


3. The findings stop there and the learned
Magistrate held-
"having regard to the fact that SUTTON
"had his staff in on( hand when he pushed
MASON I decided that MASON was justified
"in striking him to prevent a repetition of
"any further assault by SUTTON and I accord-
"ingly dismissed the charge."
4. From these remarks and the findings as
set out above, it is clear that the only assault found
was as stated in (iv) alove; riz., the slapping of
SUTTON by the Respondent after SUTTON had
pushed him. I find it difficult to understand the
learned Magistrate when he holds that this assault
was justified on the ground that it tended to pre-
vent a repetition of any further assault by SUTTON.
This was certainly not the case, as may be gathered
from the facts found in v above; and, in general,
a retaliation of that kind tends to precipitate a con-
flict rather than to terminate it.
5. The case must go back to the learned
Magistrate with a direction that the particular
ground on which he found the assault justifiable
was erroneous; and with directions to deal with
this and the other points arising in the case and to
decide the issues in accordance with the law.
