Resident Magistrate Lorna Shelly-Williams is to rule today on an application by defence lawyers for Reverend Al Miller who wants the court to subpoena the telephone records of Police Commissioner, Owen Ellington.

The telephone record requested is for a June 22, 2010 conversation between Miller and Ellington.

The attorneys say the records will prove that the popular pastor was in contact with law enforcement at the time when they were seeking then fugitive Christopher 'Dudus' Coke.

The lawyers have also requested the visitor attendance log at Ellington's St Andrew offices for May 19 and 22, 2010 and notes of a meeting between the Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner Jevene Bent and Miller.

Miller is on trial for perverting the course of justice and accessory after the fact arising from his arrest in 2010 when he was found in the company of Coke.

The pastor claimed that he was taking the former West Kingston strongman to the United States Embassy in Kingston for him to surrender.

Coke is now serving time in a US prison.
