Published:Thursday | March 24, 2011 | 5:39 PM

A book used to keep a record of persons who collect documents regarding extradition requests has corroborated statements made by the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Jeremy Taylor.

The book was reported missing by Justice Ministry consultant, Marcia Beverly, during Tuesday’s sitting of the commission of enquiry.

Lord Anthony Gifford, the attorney for the Office of the DPP had said it was important that the book be found so that certain contradictions in Beverly’s testimony and that of the deputy DPP could be clarified.

Beverly had said that it was a police officer who had signed for the documents relating to the Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke extradition request and not Taylor.

However,reading an entry from the book this afternoon, Lord Gifford, noted that it was in fact Taylor who had signed.
