Reverend Merrick 'Al' Miller.

Attorneys for the Reverend Merrick 'Al' Miller have until May 4 to provide a magistrate with written submissions outlining why the corruption charge against him should be dismissed.

Prosecutors have been given until May 11 to respond and the trial is scheduled to resume on May 18.

The dates were set in the Corporate Area Criminal Court today.

The no-case submission was scheduled to be heard today, but was postponed because the magistrate was absent.

Miller, the popular pastor of the St Andrew-based Fellowship Tabernacle Church, is charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice.

He was charged after then fugitive Christopher 'Dudus' Coke was found in a sport utility vehicle the clergyman was driving along Mandela Highway, in St Catherine.
