Report of the Duffus Commission of Inquiry into the Breakdown of Law & Order, and Police Brutality in Grenada

Part IV

Events Subsequent to November 18, 1973

Paragraph 199. - Note on David Isaac

199. When David Isaac gave evidence he said he was 16 years old although he appeared older. He seemed frightened and proved to be an unreliable witness. The only part of his evidence upon which we relied is that the song "Jewel behave yourself or they will charge us for murder" was sung by the gathered company in the presence of Mr. Gairy. This was corroborated by the evidence of Cosmos Nurse. He did not place any reliance on the other evidence he gave; but having regard to all the circumstance we refrain from recommending that he should be prosecuted for perjury.
