Police Sergeants Jubert Llewellyn and Delon Lewis could face departmental charges for their handling of the case against businessman Bruce Bicknell.




The disclosure came from Senior Superintendent Radcliffe Lewis as he gave evidence in the corruption trial of Bicknell and Senior Superintendent James Forbes in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate Court today.



Bicknell and Forbes are on trial for attempting to pervert the course of justice arising from a traffic ticket issued to Bicknell in April last year.



The case centres around allegations that they arranged a meeting to have the ticket disposed of.



In his testimony, Senior Superintendent Lewis said following the arrest of Bicknell, he told Llewellyn to take the matter to court.



However, he told the court those instructions were not followed.



The head of the police traffic division said he also instructed Sergeant Lewis to write a report of the circumstances under which Bicknell was arrested, but testified that was not done.
