Former Prime Minister P.J. Patterson is defending Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown in her doping case.

The hearing into the positive test for a diuretic began this morning at the offices of Attorney-at-Law Winston Spaulding in St Andrew.

The hearing, which continues tomorrow, was adjourned after two-and-a-half hours.

On June 14, it was revealed that Campbell-Brown was tested positive for a banned substance which may be regarded as a masking agent for performance-enhancing substances.
