Mr Cleare appeals against part of the order of the Court of Appeal of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas (Allen P and Blackman and Conteh JJA) dated 14 March 2013. The part against which he appeals is its dismissal of his appeal against part of an order made by Longley J (“the judge”) on 23 June 2011.

The claims which the judge then determined arose out of the appellant’s arrest by the police on 17 January 2007 and of his detention in police custody at the Lucaya Police Station until 22 January 2007. The appellant’s claims were brought against four defendants, now the respondents, namely the Attorney General, the Commissioner of Police, Police Sergeant Rahming and Police Sergeant Bowe.

Katherine Deal & Rowan Pennington-Benton for the Appellant.
