Pastor of Fellowship Tabernacle Reverend Merrick 'Al' Miller is refusing to address the call for him to resign as pastor in light of his criminal conviction recently.

Writing in The Gleaner today, pastor of the Boulevard Baptist Church, Reverend Devon Dick called for him to step down from his pastoral duties.

Reverend Dick said if the church does not speak clearly about Reverend Miller’s need to step down then the moral voice of the institution could be compromised.

When contacted today, Reverend Miller said he was respectful of people’s right and liberty to share their opinion, whether it is coming from an informed position.

Reverend Miller was recently found guilty of a corruption charge arising from the 2010 capture of then fugitive Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.

The verdict came more than six years after Dudus was captured in a sport utility vehicle that was being driven by Reverend Miller along Mandela Highway in St Catherine in 2010.

Reverend Miller was initially charged with harbouring a fugitive and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The charge of harbouring a fugitive was dropped shortly after the trial began.

In 2011, Reverend Miller was also previously found guilty in relation to the loss of his licensed firearm.
