This was an appeal by Subramaniam, a rubber tapper, from an order of the Supreme Court of the Federation of Malaya. On April 28, 1955, the appellant was found in a wounded condition by certain members of the security forces; that when he was searched there was found around his waist a leather belt with three pouches containing twenty live rounds of ammunition. The defense put forward was that he had been captured by terrorists and that at all material times he was acting under duress. He gave evidence describing his capture and sought to give evidence of what the terrorists said to him, but the trial judge ruled that evidence of the conversation with the terrorists was not admissible unless they were called. Appellant was convicted.
