If I do not live to see that day, My son will see it, If he does not see that day, His son will see it, And it will come circling the Caribbean like fire, It will come to this land and every land, And when it comes, I will come alive again, And laugh again and walk out of this prison

HABEAS CORPUS

A petition for a writ of habeas corpus is a judicial mandate to a prison official, often from a prisoner, ordering that an inmate be brought to the court so it can be determined whether or not that person is imprisoned lawfully and whether or not s/he should be released from custody. Habeas Corpus forms the essence of the rule of law - a fundamental right to challenge detention.

Victor Husbands' note of 29 SEP 1981 Report said:

NOTE: Stephen Cuffie, an Ex Policeman, is Vincentian by birth. His release had been sanctioned a few months ago on the basis of representations made by the St. Vincent Government and the Grenada Conference of Churches but due to the fact that he complained in a written statement, that he was subjected to torture and ill-treatment while held on Fort Rupert, it was decided to stay his release in the interests of unfavourable propaganda. His release was sanctioned at the time on the condition that he be deported to St. Vincent. It is suggested that he be released and allowed to remain in the country for at least one year after which time he may be deported. This might serve to counter any desire on his part to publicise the treatment he received on the Fort.

In a report dated 14 DEC 1982, Victor Husbands wrote in part:

Release was favourably considered in 1981 on representation of the St. Vincent Government through Archdeacon Huggins of the Anglican Church but final decision stayed on the ground of possible unfavourable propaganda. Deportation upon release not recommended as this would certainly provide some basis for unsavoury propaganda.

Cuffie, according to prison records, was released 17 OCT 1983; 1988 Recommendation of the Claims Commission; full or partial claim received

Head of Special Investigations had this to say describing Stanley Roberts on 14 DEC 1982:

Dock Worker and Trade Unionist. Detained in connection with the illegal publication of the "Grenadian Voice." Was a vendor of the said paper, but was convinced by Lloyd Noel that that paper was legal. Became vendor as a result. In view of prior trade union activities in which suspicion ran high of involvement in AIFLD and CIA covert initiatives and manoeuvres, in the region, which has been vigorously denied anyway, he has faithfully pledged to stay completely out of Trade Unionism and politics. He has also pledged cooperation with the Government and revolution. Deeply regrets his involvement in the Grenadian Voice affair. His release is strongly recommended . . .
