This ruling arose from preliminary objection by counsel for
the Applicant to the effect that the presiding judge disqualify
himself from entertaining the application.
Court ruled that the applicant should be given an opportunity
to argue the application and since he did not have confidence
in His Lordship to pride over the application, His Lordship
accordingly disqualified himself from handling the
application. His Lordship was of the view that justice must
not only be done but be seen to be done.
