Petro s/o Kihisi v. R., Crim. App. 498-M-67, 27/7/67, Cross, J.

Accused was convicted of housebreaking and stealing. On appeal, he argued for the first time that an admission made in the presence of the complainant and the Village Executive Officer had been obtained by unlawful inducement.

            Held: The accused “did not suggest during his trial that the admission ….. was obtained by any promise or threat although he now, as an after-thought, includes that in his grounds of appeal.” Because the evidence justified the conviction, and because there was no misdirection by the magistrate, the conviction was upheld.
