Prosecution to reopen Tredegar Park case, seek to call additional evidence

Published:Friday | September 13, 2013 | 8:02 AM

The prosecution is moving to reopen its case and call additional evidence against the eight policemen accused of refusing to cooperate with the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).



The crown closed its case on Wednesday in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court and the matter was set to be continued on December 23.



But yesterday the crown indicated that it has additional material and informed defence lawyers of its plans.



Former Director of Public Prosecution Kent Pantry is prosecuting the case.



The accused are Orrette Williamson, Gerville Williams, Francis Rennalls, Devon Noble, David Hutchinson, Petro Green, Marcel Dixon, and Kenneth Daley.



They were charged in 2011 after they refused to give statements to INDECOM and to attend identification parades.



INDECOM was probing the August 2010 killings of Derrick Bolton and Rohan Dixon in Tredegar Park, Spanish Town, St. Catherine.



The police reported that Bolton and Dixon were killed in a cross-fire between gunmen and members of the security forces.



However, residents said they were killed in a case of mistaken identity.



Hutchinson and Daley where charged with murder in July this year and are before the Home Circuit Court.
