IN THE SUPREME COURT OF THE
WINDWARD ISLANDS AND
LEEWARD ISLANDS.

(Appellate Jurisdiction.)
A.D. 1956.
No. 13.


CECIL DICK

vs.


-Appellant


COL. S. A. ANDERSON,
Chief of Police
-Respondent.
Mr. R. MILTON CATO for the Appellant.
The CROWN ATTORNEY for the Respondent.
JUDGMENT.
On the 27th August, 1956 the learned
Magistrate of Distrct II Sitting as an
additional Magistrate of District I con-
victed the Appellant of the following
complaint brought by the Respondent: -
"On the 25th day of July, 1956 at
Kingstown . at a Public meeting at
the Market Square, did unlawfully make
use of certain insulting words to wit:-
'George Charles came here two years ago
and thief all you money, he doesn't know
right nor left, who is he, he came here
and fool all of us and now Charles ride
till he reach right up stairs' whereby a
breach of the peace was likely to be
occasioned. Contrary to Sec. 7 of Ord.
27/51."
The Appellant was Bound Over to keep
the peace for 6 months in the sum of
$24.00, and has appealed against this
conviction and the Order.
Mr. Cato in arguing the Appeal urged
that the circumstances related to the
Court by the prosecution witnesses-two
police officers- were not sufficient to
justify the Court in convicting the Ap-
pellant.
He stressed inter alia (i) the fact that
nowhere in the evidence did the prose-
cution indicate whether the charge was
based on an intention of the Appellant
to cause a breach of the peace, or on the
likelihood of a breach of the peace being
caused.
(ii) He adverted to the absence of
positive proof that George Charles was
present at the meeting, and argued that
his presence at the meeting was vital in
order to establish the case as laid.
(iii) The evidence of the prosecution
witnesses established that the behaviour
of those persons attending the meeting
was such that it was not reasonable for
any one in the circumstances to have
apprehended a likely breach of the peace.
(iv) The subject discussed was one of
public interest, and it was open to the
person criticised to take his own action
if he felt so disposed.
(v) In the absence of proof that simi-
lar words used on a previous occasion
had caused a breach of the peace, and
in the absence of evidence of any pas-


sage of words between persons at the
meeting and the speaker, it was not
open to any one to conclude that a
breach of the peace was likely to occur.
The Magistrate therefore erred in
coming to the conclusions which he did
come to, and consequently was wrong in
making the Order which he made.
These proceedings are brought under
Section 7 of Ordinance No. 27 of 1951
(The Public Order Ordinance 1951)
which reads as follows:-
"Any person who in a public place or
at any public meeting uses threatening
abusive or insulting words or behaviour
with intent to provoke a breach of the
peace or whereby a breach of the peace
is likely to be occasioned, shall be guilty
of an offence."
and in the Complaint the words "where-
by a breach of the peace was likely to
be occasioned' are specifically set out.
The evidence before the Court was to
the effect that the two police officers, a
Sergeant and a Constable, were both
present and took notes of the speeches
made by the various speakers. Sergt.
Isaacs in his evidence stated in cross
examination "I assumed that by Charles
the defendant was referring to the Hon-
'ble George Charles, Minister of Social
Services, who was head of a Trade
Union. I did not see him at the meeting.
I do not know if he was in the Colony
on that day. It would appear that the
reference was to certain shortages in
trade union funds. ... P.C. Conroy
Daniel in cross examination stated "... no
one was arrested at that meeting. It
was a fairly large crowd about 80 per-
sons attended the meeting. There was
no disorder. Everything went quietly."
At the close of the case for the prose-
cution a no case submission by Counsel
for the Defendant/Appellant was over-
ruled by the Court whereupon Counsel
elected to rely on his submission, and
the Court convicted.
Cases cited by Counsel for the Appel-
lant were all prior to 1936 the date of
the Public Order Act 1936. (1 Ed. viii and
1 Geo. 6 Cap. 6.) They consequently do
not in the opinion of this Court have
any real bearing on the interpretation
of this comparatively recent statute,
section 5 (our section 7) of which,
created a new offence, one which was
neither known to the Common Law nor
to previous Statute Law.
The Magistrate having heard the evi-
dence was satisfied that a prima facie
case had been made out. He was satis-
fled that the words used were insulting,
and in the circumstances likely to occa-
sion a breach of the peace.
Having regard to the object of the Or-
dinance, viz:--inter alia to make further
provision for the preservation of public
Order on the occasion of meetings in
public places, to the text of the Com-
plaint, and the evidence which was be-
fore the trial Magistrate. This Court is














SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 23 OCTOBER, 1956.-(No. 55). 33.


satisfied that the conclusion arrived at
by the Magistrate having regard to the
circumstances, was reasonable.
He was the sole judge as to whether
the circumstances related to him, were
such as were, or were not, likely to occa-
sion a breach of the peace. In the opin-
ion of this Court it matters not whether
the person named was present or not,
or whether any actual breach of the
peace did result from the use of tie
words, provided the words were found
to be likely to occasion a breach of the
peace.
Further this Court is of the opinion
that the words used at the particular
public meeting, of and concerning
George Charles, a local political figure,
were insulting and that the use of these
words in the circumstances was likely
to occasion a breach of the peace either
by him or his partisans had they been
present.
For these reasons this Court dismisses
the Apeal and confirms the conviction
and Order of the learned Magistrate.

Puisne Judge.
