Dean v Bhim (Trinidad and Tobago)

Probate – Practice. In contested probate proceedings arising from the respondent accountant of the deceased's application for probate, none of the grounds of appeal by the appellant daughter of the deceased had come anywhere near placing the appeal within that very limited special category which justified a departure from the Privy Council's practice of declining to interfere with concurrent findings of pure fact. Accordingly, the Privy Council, dismissed the appellant's appeal against the findings of the judge and the Court of Appeal of Trinidad and Tobago, that included that the deceased's will had been signed and duly executed by the deceased.
