Bungles appeal ruling postponed until next Friday

Published:Thursday | February 28, 2013

Former Superintendent of Police Harry "Bungles" Daley will have to wait until next week Friday to know his fate.



The Court of Appeal should have handed down its decision today but it was put off in order to complete the written reasons.



On January 23, the court reserved its decision on whether Daley's corruption conviction should be overturned.



Daley's lawyers, Valerie Neita-Robertson and Debra Martin argued that the verdict was unreasonable because of the discrepancies and non-disclosures by the prosecution.



Daley was sentenced in 2009 to 18 months’ imprisonment for breaching the Corruption Prevention Act.



The Crown’s argued that he corruptly collected $15,000 from St Catherine businessman Safari Clarke for offering protection for a plaza in Ewarton, St Catherine.



Daley is currently on bail.
