BRIBERY TRIAL: Proceedings continue today

Published:Thursday | June 13, 2013 | 10:02 AM

Attorney at law K.D. Knight is to continue his cross examination of Sergeant Jubert Llewellyn, when the bribery trial of senior policeman James Forbes and businessman Bruce Bicknell continue today.



Sergeant Llewellyn, who is the prosecution’s star witness, yesterday withdrew a statement he made regarding the circumstances under which he was allegedly bribed.



During cross-examination by Knight, who is representing Bicknell, the policeman admitted that the chronology of events in the second statement differed from the first.



Knight had pointed out that in the first statement given on April 28, 2012, Llewellyn had said that he saw the money and then went over to his colleague Sergeant Dillion Lewis.



The attorney then pointed out that in the second statement, which was given the following month, the witness said he asked Bicknell for the car documents and then he immediately went over to Lewis, spoke with his colleagues and asked Lewis to pay attention.



Knight further said the statement went on to say that Llewellyn said that Bicknell gave him the car documents and it was then that he saw the two $1,000 notes among the papers.



Llewellyn told the court that he was standing by the first statement.



He returns to the witness stand today.
