Senior Puisne judge Gloria Smith is to decide on February 28 if bail will be granted to the alleged leader of the St James-based Stone Crusher gang, Eldon Calvert, and two other men who are facing murder charges.
The case was also put off yesterday to give the prosecution time to get the handwriting expert to examine the statements to ensure that they are not fabricated.
This is in relation to the new policy put in place by the director of public prosecutions (DPP) after it was disclosed last week that Detective Sergeant Michael Sirjue had fabricated statements in a murder case for which Eldon Calvert was on trial.
Following the revelation in the Home Circuit Court, Calvert and his brother Gleason Calvert and Michael Heron were freed of the murder charge.
Defence lawyers Roy Fairclough, Trevor HoLyn, Chumu Paris and Tamika Spencer had challenged Sirjue's evidence on the basis that the statement, purportedly signed by a witness who had since died, was a forgery.
The DPP had the document examined and it turned out that Sirjue had written and signed the statement.
The men were on trial for the murder of cookshop operator Robert Green of Salt Spring, St James.
Eldon Calvert and Michael Heron, who are facing other murder charges, were remanded until yesterday for bail application to be made.
The defence lawyers made bail applications for Calvert and Heron.
Bail application was also made for Orrette Grant who is charged jointly with Eldon Calvert for murder.
The murders took place in Salt Spring, St James, in 2006.
Eldon Calvert was captured in Trelawny in January 2008 after he was listed among the country's 10 most-wanted men.
Sirjue fled the island last Thursday for the United States. The DPP has ruled that he must be charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice and forgery.
