KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Police Corporal Damion Pabarue today became the fourth prosecution witness to give evidence in the corruption trial of popular pastor the Reverend Merrick Al Miller.




The trial resumed in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court, today.



The popular clergyman was arrested and charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice in 2010 after then fugitive, Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, was found in his vehicle along the Mandela Highway, in St Catherine.



At the time an extradition warrant had been issued for Coke who was wanted in the United States on drugs and firearms charges.



Corporal Pabarue outlined how he used his police service unit to force Miller’s sports utility vehicle to a halt before recognizing Coke in the front passenger seat.



He, however denied suggestions by Miller’s attorney, Jacqueline Samuels-Brown that he was adjusting his account of what happened to accord with things he had subsequently heard.



The police corporal also denied suggestions that when he wrote his witness statement a day after the incident it too was adjusted.



The trial is scheduled to continue tomorrow.
