Abdala s/o Siki v. R., Crim. App. 301-D-68, Biron J.

The two accused, after being interrogated at length and thoroughly beaten by an assistant head man and a TANU Youth League member, confessed to a theft, of which they were suspected.

            Held: “(i)f the convictions rested and depended only on these confessions made under duress, (this Court) would not have the slightest hesitation allowing the appeals and quashing the convictions.” (2) Because of the presence of other evidence, independent of the confessions, which was sufficient basis for a conviction, the convictions were affirmed.
