1. No satisfactory grounds have been advanced by the applicant concerning his convictions. He simply states that he was doing what hisemployer told him to do. He said that he was now prepared to make a statement to the police concerning him.

2. If he is prepared to do this and the information he gives is helpful and leads to any person being convicted of any offence, it ispossible that he might receive some reduction of his sentence if executive clemency was to be exercised. This, of course, is separateand independent of this application.

3. The applicant has also not advanced any satisfactory grounds in support of his application for leave to appeal against his sentences.Both applications for leave to appeal against conviction and sentence are accordingly dismissed.
