[2001] UKPC 38

Where there was evidence sufficient to establish provocation, the proviso to s.39(1) West Indies Associated States Supreme Court Act 1969 could not be applied. The defendant's murder conviction was quashed and substituted with a conviction of manslaughter because provocation had not been left to the jury.

PC (Ant) (Lord Bingham of Cornhill, Lord Mackay, Lord Nicholls, Lord Hoffmann, Lord Clyde)
