Jugde throws out Mac Dougall report

-President v/s Freddie Kissoon libel case

Prior to the commencement of re-examination of Dr Roger Luncheon, chief witness in the President’s ongoing libel case, yesterday by Nandlall, Justice Reynolds informed the court that he was officially ruling that the Gay McDougall Report was inadmissible as evidence in the case.
The judge said he was not satisfied with the authenticity of such an “unreliable” document and recalled that the witness had rejected the report in its entirety. It may have been accepted had the government accepted the report or remained silent on its contents, the judge said.Nigel Hughes
Justice Reynolds reiterated that it was “unfair” and “unsafe” for the witness to be questioned on the report and that any answers that he (the witness) may give may amount to his opinion about the opinion of the author and those shared with her.
