BRIBERY TRIAL: Llewellyn under cross examination

Published:Wednesday | July 3, 2013 | 1:16 PM

Police Sergeant Jubert Llewellyn is now facing cross examination in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court as the bribery case involving senior cop James Forbes and businessman Bruce Bicknell continues.



Under cross examination by Queen's Counsel Jacqueline Samuels-Brown, Llewellyn said since he gave evidence in the case persons have spoken to him about the matter but he has refused to discuss it.



It was suggested to him that he made a mistake when he said Forbes told him that the current commissioner of police knew about the mediation meeting.



However, Llewellyn suggested it might have been Forbes who was mistaken, and explained that when he had asked about the consequences or a backlash he was referred to the current police commissioner.



He also admitted that Forbes was a trained mediator.



The police sergeant was also reexamined by the prosecutor as to the difference between a person being charged and a matter being under investigation.



Llewellyn said based on his experience persons charged means the matter would have been disposed of in court.



The Crown is alleging that the two, Forbes and Bicknell, attempted to pervert the course of justice on April 13, 2012 at a mediation meeting.



Bicknell was issued with a traffic ticket for speeding on April 9, 2012 and was also charged with bribery after it was alleged that he offered Llewellyn $2,000.
