DETERMINATION

___________________________

Mr Justice Litton PJ:

1. There are two applicants before us, seeking leave to appeal against the dismissal of their appeals by Mr Justice Woo JA in the HighCourt.

2. They were convicted jointly on one charge of common assault in the Western Magistracy. Additionally, the first applicant was convictedof wilfully obstructing a police officer in the due execution of his duty.

3. The facts leading to these convictions have been carefully investigated in the two courts below. It is not the function of the Courtof Final Appeal to review the facts all over again. The applicants have brought forward nothing this morning which would justifyleave to bring an appeal to the Court of Final Appeal.

4. These applications are dismissed.
