Al Miller to return to court today

Clergyman, Al Miller is scheduled to return to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today.



Miller is before the court on charges of attempting to pervert the course of justice and accessory arising from the arrest of then fugitive Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke in 2010.



At the last hearing in May, Resident Magistrate Stephanie Jackson Haisley had ordered the Police commissioner Owen Ellington to provide the court with telephone records.



However, it’s not clear if the Commissioner has complied with the order.

The records include a 119 call and a police radio and telephonic transmission on June 22, 2010.



Defence attorney Jacqueline Samuels Brown said the material will be critical to prove that her client was in contact with law enforcement at the relevant time.



Miller had claimed that he was taking Coke to the US Embassy in Kingston to surrender when he was intercepted by the police.



However the authorities have denied that claim.
