Justice Vivienne Harris, who is presiding at the trial for police constable Collis 'Chucky' Brown, today indicated she will be ordering that a subpoena is issued for the head of the Clarendon Police, Senior Superintendent Vendolyn Cameron-Powell, to appear in court.

Cameron-Powell will be asked to take to court the station diaries that were used at the police station between January 10 and 30, 2009.

The decision followed this morning's revelation that the crown's first witness gave a statement to the May Pen Police two to three days after the shooting death of Robert 'Gutty' Dawkins.

Dawkins was killed on January 10, 2009, along the Palmer's Cross main road in Clarendon.

The witness made the admission while being crossed examined by Brown's attorney Norman Godfrey.

The prosecution told the court that it was not aware of the existence of the statement.

Brown is on trial for charges stemming from incidents in 2009 and 2012 in which Dawkins, Dwayne Douglas, and Andrew Fearon were shot and killed.

The crown's second witness is expected to take the stand tomorrow.
