THE LEEWARD ISLANDS GAZETTE.


In the Supreme Court of the Windward Islands and
Leeward Islands.
ANTIGUA CIRCUIT.
Between:
THOMAS BENJAMIN IPlaintif.
and
WILFREI) MONTGOMERY WILLET
and
WILLIAM ENTRY WHYTE Deendants.
JUDGMENT.
1. On October 20th, 1951. about 9.30 p.m. four persons were standing near each other on
the Clare Hall Road, Antigua. Two of them were police constables on duty, WILLETT and WHYTE, the
defendants in this action; the others were NEiVILLE FRANCIS and STEDMAN PUNTER. They were on the
left side of rhe road to :nVy one approaching front St. John's and there was space for traffic to pass in
either direction. A cycle i, appeared coming from St. John's; lie had a lamp lit on his bicycle; but in
spite of the space available he collided with WILLETT. lie anl WILLETT both fell. When they got up
WILTLETT asked the cyclist his name; he refused to give it, even after \VILLETT informed him he was a
police constable. The cyclist was taken into custody. For a time he put up a stout resistance and
WILLETT used a baton borrowed from WHITE. He was taken to Police Headquarters and charged with
riding his bicycle in a manner dangerous to the public, and with assaulting WILLETT in the execution of
his duty. These charges were heard on the 25th October in the Magistrate's Court. The cyclist was
acquitted on both charges.
2. The cyclist is the plaintiff in this action; he sues both WILLETT and WHYTE for damages
for false imprisonment, malicious prosecution and assault. Under section 34 of the Police Act (Cap. 84)
lih has to prove that tne acts of the defendants were done either maliciously or without reasonable or
probable caiie; and in the action for malicious prosecution malice has to be proved in addition to want
of reasonable or probably" cause. As regards the apprehension of the plaintiff there was, to put it at its
lowest, a reasonable suspicion that he had committed an offence against the Road Traffic Ordinance; he
had, in full view of the constables, seemed to have ridden his cycle recklessly and in a manner dangerous
to the public. There was power to apprehend him under either sections 13 or 16 of the Police Act.
He refused to give his name and the constables did no more than would naturally be expected of them
by taking him into custody. There is nothing to suggest malice; there was both reasonable and prob-
able cause. The action for false imprisonment fails.
3. A similar conclusion must be reached in the action for malicious prosecution. There was
reasonable ,'use for charging the plaintiff for an offence under the Road Traffic Ordinance. The
evidence led showed tlhat the plaintiff resisted arrest; that in the course of his resistance he assaulted
WILLETT; a'd that WILLETT ,as acting in the execution of his duty when he arrested the plaintiff. It
was suggest'.l that the preferment of these charges was actuated by malice on the part of \ILLETT,
because he b .d been knocked flown by the plaintiff's bicycle. It was, however, made clear that on the
question as i.o whether any charge or charges should be preferred WILLETT had no determining voice;
his statement and those of others were considered by higher authority; and a decision as to the charges
to be made was arrived at irrespective of WILLETT. It was WILLETT who made the charges before the
Magistrate; bit the procedure which led to them absolves him from any malicious intention. WHYTE
had nothing to do with the charges.
4. It has been already stated that WILrETT borrowed a baton from VWHYTE and used it on
the plaintiff. In the evidence :is led as to what happened during the resistance of the plaintiff there are
discrepancies and inconsistencies. One point is clear, however; the plaintiff was examined by Dr.
MARGETSON on the 22nd October. The doctor did not discover any signs of contusions such as would
be caused by baton blow except one. This was over the left forearm; and underneath it there was a
fracture of the lower thib I of the left ulnar. There can be no doubt that this was caused by a blow
with a baton from WILLETT. The doctor was of opinion that considerable force was used.
5. I find that there was no reasonable cause for this use of force. There were two constables
there to deal with the resistance of the plaintiff and the evidence made it clear that re-inforcements were
within easy reach and did actt U ly arrive before the plaintiff had been taken to the police headquarters.
I find that TVHYTE was not resp )i)sibe for this use of force; he simply obeyed the order of WILLETT
when lending his baton. The injury to the plaintiff necessitated his absence from work for 6 weeks-I
allow $96.12 for this and award a further $25 for pain and suffering.
6. On the above findings there will be judgment for the defendant WrrYTR with costs to be
taxed.
7. On the is,-ues false imprisonment aid malicious prosecution the defendant WILLETT
succeeds. On the issue, of assault there will be judgment against him for $`121.12. On the issues on
which he has succeeded he will receive from the plaintiff two-thirds of Iis taxed costs. On the issue of
assault the plaintiff will receive from him one-third of his taxed costs.

and
Appetllants
RoK ErT \WILLIAMS

and
1 OAt,: HIi. KIlLSI(K
(.l.s. ./. "qpt. Of Polirce)
Respondents.

Before: MANNING, Acting, P. J.

1. On the 18th December, 1951, the appellants were convicted of keeping for sale by retail
intoxicating liquor without being licensed to All the same, contrary to section 23 of Ordinance No. 4 of
1879.
2. The facts proved were that on the Srh December, 1951, the appellant Muriel Brown legdilv
purchased 24 pints of rum and took them to her premises at Prwham. On the sime day a police officer,
who had an authority to search for smuggled goo!s. went to her premises aboul 4.45 p.m. He did not
find i md'iel Brwn there; he found the appellant Williams in the premises. A -earch was made by the
officer alnd other constables who were with him. In the drawing room there were two pint bottles each
containing a small quantity of rum, three empty pint bottles, aind a tumbler smelling of alcohol. In the
be'r'omi under one bed 16 nint bottles of rum were found, and under another bed 3 pint bottles of rum
and 2 flats marked Imperial Rum. There was evidence that Williams, in answer to a question Ib one
of the constables, admitted that he sold run;.
3. The appellant Williams gave an explanation before the Magistrate that the alcohol was
bought for 3 purposes, to give to fellows who were to help in a lift, to celebrate the confirmation of one
his sons, and for Christmas. He denied that he had ever admitted to the constable that he sold ruin.
4. Mr. Henry arguing the appeal on behalf of the appellants, said that there was no evidence
to warrant the inference that the liquor w:as kept for sale. As regards the alleged admission by
Wdliams he stressed the fact that the police officer in charge had not heard it, though there was
evidence that he ought to have heard it if it was made. He said that the explanation given by
Williams was reasonable.
5. The Crown Attorney, Mr. Kelsick, urged that the large quantity of liquor led to the infer-
ence that it was being kept for sale. He was at a loss to account for the fact that the officer in charge
had not heard the admission of Williams; and candidly stated that he ws not so happy" about
the conviction of Muriel Brown.
6. The liquor was openly bought by Muriel Brown and I agree with Mr. Henry that its
quantity did not necessarily lead to the inference that it was intended for sale. But there was the evidence
as to the admission by Williams. The learned Magistrate found as a fact that it was made; and
nothing has been urged to persuade me that he was wrong in so doing. This admission, however,
could not affect Muriel Browin; and I do not see in the evidence anything to justify an inference that
she was keeping the liquor for sale. Her appeal will be allowed. Her convict ion and punishment are
set aside.
7. The appeal of Williams is dismissed. Conviction and punishment affirmed.

Clerk of the Council.



OBJECTS AND REASONS.


The question of introducing presidential legis-
lation to govern the training of apprentices in In-
dustrial undertakings has been under consideration
for some time and steps are being taken in at least
one Presidency to introduce in the Legislature there-
of an Industrial Training Bill. It becomes necessary,
therefore, to repeal the Apprentices Act (Cap. 136)
so as to enable any presidential legislation in this
respect to be enacted.


No. of 1952.









LEEWARD 2

Apprentices (Repeal).


In any case the Apprentices Act which was
enacted as far back as June 1882 is archaic and con-
tains certain penal sanctions which are in conflict
with International Labour Conventions.
