Al Miller, the pastor of the Fellowship Tabernacle Church in St Andrew is on trial for attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Attorneys for popular pastor the reverend Merrick ‘Al’ Miller today closed their case in his corruption trial before the Corporate Area Criminal Court.

This now clears the way for closing arguments from prosecutors and defence attorneys before a verdict from Resident Magistrate Simone Wolfe-Reece.

The trial has been adjourned until May 4 when the closing arguments will be heard.

Wolfe-Reece is scheduled to give her verdict on June 14.

Miller, who is the pastor of the Fellowship Tabernacle Church in St Andrew is on trial for attempting to pervert the course of justice.

He was charged after then fugitive Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke was captured in his vehicle along the Mandela Highway in St Catherine in June 2010.

After prosecutors closed their case against the popular clergyman last year Wolfe-Reece dismissed a no-case submission made by lead defence attorney Jacqueline Samuels-Brown.
