HC Deb 03 December 1852 vol 123 cc834-5

begged to ask the right hon. Secretary of State for the Home Department what had been the result of the inquiry undertaken by the Government into the case of Leopold de Rose, a Polish officer, who was imprisoned in Winchester gaol at the instance of Captain Cospatrick Baillie Hamilton, R.N.


, in reply, said, that after reading the evidence adduced at the committal of Mr. De Rose, he believed the magistrate could not have come to any other decision than that he had arrived at. At the same time, it was due to Mr, De Rose to state that, judging from communications subsequently received, and from new facts which had transpired relative to the case, he must say that he wished those facts had been brought under the consideration of the magistrate, the result of which, he believed, would have been that Mr. De Rose would have been acquitted of the charge then brought against him.
