ALLEGED PERJURY BY A POLICE SERGEANT AT ST ASAPH. On Monday, at the St Asaph, Petty Sessions before Major Birch, Rev. R. H. Howard, R. J. Sisson, Esq., Edwin Morgan, Esq., and Captain Howard, Police Sergeant William Parry, was charged that he "wilfully and corruptly, did commit wilful aud corrupt perjury in his evidence as a witness on the hearing of a certain inform- ation" and &c., &c., at the St. Asaph Petty Sessions, on the third of November. Mr Malcolm Douglas, barrister (instructed by Mr Alun Lloyd) prosecuted, and Mr William Davies of Rhyl defended. A legal objection to the information by Mr Davies having been over- ruled, Mr Douglas proceeded to open the case, and it appeared that the perjury was contained in the evidence given by Parry to the following effect: I saw Joseph Roberta several times during the afternoon of the 11th of September, saw him by the Court-house at half-past nine in the evening. I went down with Edward Jones to the iron bridge, and there Edward Jones pointed out Joseph Roberts to me. I am quite certain Joseph Roberts was there. I saw him again in the old lane about ten minutes to ten. Joseph Roberts was standing near Cornelius Pierce and William Roberts. I was standing within ten yards of him, and could see him plain." For the plaintiff it was contended that Joseph Roberts was not near the place at the time stated. P.O. Edward Jones repeated the evidence given on the 3rd of November, and maintained that Joseph Roberts was one of the parties who assault- ed him. This witness, who, though called by the prosecu- tion, was treated as a II hostile" witness, said he had heard the evidence of P.S. Parry when the assault case was tried, could not eay that he had heard defendant say that he had seen Jos. Roberts several times. He did hear defendant saying that he had seen Joseph Roberts by the court house. He could not say that he had heard him say, I am certain it is Joseph Roberts." Robert Davies, reporter, Rhyl Advertiser, pro- duced the notes taken by him on the 3rd of Novem- ber at the St. Asaph Sessions, the substance of which are contained in the charge. A host of witnesses were then called to prove that Joseph Roberts was not on the city side of the Elwy at all between 8 and 10 on the night of the 11th of September. After the evidence for the prosecution had been taken a number of witnesses were called for the defence, and they all swore to seeing Joseph Roberts either in company with those who assaulted the police, or in the vicinity of the assault. The magistrates retired at 7. 20, and returned to court and announced that they had decided to dismiss the case. The hearing lasted nearly 8 hours.
