[2001] UKPC 27

The defendant's appeal against his conviction in Belize for murder was allowed because the jury had not been directed as to the issue of provocation in the terms of s.116(b) Belize Criminal Code, and accordingly the conviction was reduced to manslaughter.

PC (Bze) (Lord Bingham of Cornhill, Lord Hoffmann, Lord Cooke of Thorndon, Lord Scott, Sir Patrick Russell)
