Former police commissioner Owen Ellington is expected to continue to be cross-examined today as the West Kingston Commission of Enquiry resumes public hearings.

Ellington is being crossed-examined by attorney-at-law Jacqueline Samuels Brown, who is representing Reverend Al Miller.

Miller has claimed that he was working with the police to secure the peaceful surrender of then fugitive Christopher “Dudus” Coke.

Coke was captured in Miller’s car in June 2010.

The commission had been hearing legal arguments for the last two days from attorneys for the security forces who are seeking to bar the disclosure of certain documents submitted to the enquiry as evidence.

They say the documents should not to be disclosed on the grounds of public interest immunity.

The West Kingston commission is looking into the 2010 joint police-military operation in West Kingston aimed at capturing then fugitive Christopher 'Dudus' Coke who was wanted by the United States on drugs and gun related charges.

More than 70 people were killed in the operation.
