Stuart-Moore V-P (giving the judgment of the Court):

1. This is an application which has been brought under the provisions of section 32(2) of the Court of Final Appeal Ordinance, Cap.484 for a certificate that points of law of great and general importance were involved in the judgment of this court which was handeddown on 27 March 2001.

2. We were asked by Mr Andrew Bullett, on behalf of the Applicant, to certify on four points which are set out at considerable lengthin an amended notice of motion dated 29 May 2001. It is unnecessary to recite the points which have been raised and it suffices toexpress the view, with which Mr Bullett in effect himself agreed, that none of the points raised were of great and general importancearising from the decision of the court.

3. Accordingly, we decline to grant a certificate.
