Blank warrant

Search Warrant

The attached is a scanned copy of an original search warrant, signed by a Justice of the Peace.

Immediately prior to my leaving Bermuda I seized every example of such warrants I could locate.  I do not know if more remained. 

The warrants could not be obtained lawfully.  However, in Bermuda law (unlike the U.S.A.) it matters not that the warrant was obtained illegally, anything seized during a search supported by such a warrant, remains admissible.

But what of the officer who obtained the warrant?  Could you really be sure the exhibits (drugs or equipment) were found as stated?  If an Officer were prepared to use a 'blank' search warrant is it not possible (likely) the account given of discovering 'evidence' was similarly fictitious?

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus (false in one, false in everything), similar to "my client is a liar, but he's telling the truth now".

Remember, when the officer attends Court he will give evidence, on oath (he will "swear by almighty God that the evidence I give will be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth") that (acting on information received), on day, date, time, place, he obtained the warrant.

The obtaining of such a blank warrant has far reaching consequences.
