Racial abuse – a precedent

Trevor Chesterfield has quoted a precedent on the racial abuse front that happened about three years ago in the West Indies

But let us return to the monkey charges against Bhajji. When Dwayne Bravo filed a complaint against Graeme Smith for supposedly uttering a racist epithet in the fourth Test in Antigua three years ago, the case was not proved because nothing was picked up by the stump mikes or heard by the umpires. That left Bravo’s accusation against Smith’s denial. Result? No case to answer.
