Summary of the Court’s Decision

The findings of the learned trial judge did not solely turn on a question of fact. It was a mixed question of fact and law. Thus, even if the findings of the learned trial judge were based on factual ground it did not absolve this court of doing its duty as an appellate court (see paragraph 38 of the Judgment in MLJ).
