Spencer to return to court in April
The trial of former junior energy minister Kern Spencer and his co-accused Colleen Wright has been put off until April 4.
Spencer and Wright are facing corruption and money laundering charges arising from the implementation of the Cuban light-bulb project.
The trial could not go ahead yesterday because of a pending ruling by the Court of Appeal.
The presiding magistrate, Judith Pusey, is appealing against a Judicial Review Court ruling which quashed her order compelling Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn to appear as a witness at the trial.
Kartel's trial put off until May
The trial of embattled dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel, who is accused of the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams, has again been stalled.
The case could not begin in the Home Circuit Court yesterday morning because of insufficient jurors.
The Crown and the defence said they were ready for the trial to begin.
The trial has now been rescheduled for May 27.
Bungles' appeal gets under way
The Court of Appeal yesterday began hearing submissions from the lawyers representing former Police Superintendent Harry 'Bungles' Daley who is appealing his 2008 conviction and sentencing for corruption.
Daley, who is out on bail, was convicted of extortion in 2009 and sentenced to 18 months in prison by Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey.
The Crown had led evidence that the former superintendent corruptly collected $15,000 from St Catherine businessman Tafari Clarke for offering protection for a plaza in Ewarton, St Catherine.
The hearing continues today.
