ADMISSIBILITY OF CONFESSIONS

In a challenge to a magistrate’s ruling on the admissibility of evidence in extradition proceedings, the issue was whether the magistrate’s decision had been within the range of views a reasonable magistrate, directing himself properly and in accordance with the law, could reach. It was for the trial judge in the country of return to consider issues of fairness and admissibility of evidence at trial. * Leave to appeal to the House of Lords refused.
