116. in order to maintain his position regarding the events of Sunday, November 18, 1973, and Monday, November 19, 1973, Belmar chose to assert or otherwise to imply that the following witnesses told untruthful evidence.
It is not necessary to examine in detail his allegations or imputations of untruthfulness against each of the abovenamed although the manner in which he dealt with some of them is illustrative of his attitude, his temperament and his mentality.
- Rev. Fr. Coxhead
- Rupert Bishop (deceased)
- Mrs. Sylvia Radix
- Dr. Lawrence Gibbs
- Ben Jones
- Lennie Archibald
- H.M. Bhola
- Simon Daniel
- Commissioner of Police (ag.) Nugent David
- Cpl. 190 Simon
- Anthony Waldron
- Emmanuel John
- Ann Alexander
- Cosmos Nurse
- David Andrews
It was suggested to him several times that he arrived at the Grenville police station about the same time as Radix, Austin and Daniel. Belmar denied this on every occasion and insisted that he did not go to the station at any time until about 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours after the three of them had been taken there.
The record of the station diary showed that he was not speaking the truth about his and that the suggestion was accurate; the diary shows that Belmar was noted as having arrived 12 minutes after Radix, Austin and Daniel.
He asserted that the Six detainees were charged about 8:00 p.m. (20:00) on November 18 for various offences; he denied the suggestion that the detainees were first informed of the charges only on Monday morning November 19, 1973. The station diary disclosed that the charges were not recorded until the early morning of Monday, November 19, 1973.
He asserted that the evidence of Fr. Coxhead and Dr. Gibbs was not correct, and implied that they both had lied about his being informed that Dr. Gibbs had been brought to see one of the detainees who was injured.
About Ben Jones and Lennie Archibald he said he was not surprised by their evidence because they had both been victims of police searches and had therefore "put their heads together to come here and fabricate before this Commission of Inquiry."
About Mrs. Radix his opinion was that "her son was arrested, and I don't expect better from her."
He said the same also about the late Rupert Bishop.
