HC Deb 21 May 1896 vol 41 c86
MR. J. H. DALZTEL (Kirkcaldy Burghs)

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he was in a position to state that the telegram published in the morning newspapers announcing that the two Ansahs had been found guilty on every count of the indictment was correct?


I have seen two telegrams, but I have received no official confirmation. The first said that they had been acquitted on the count of forgery and would be tried on some other count. The second telegram said they had been set free altogether
