Christopher Thomas, Gleaner Writer
ST JAMES, Jamaica:
The seven police constables, who allegedly corruptly accepted money from a man seeking to avoid prosecution for ganja last year, have been granted extensions to their bails.
Constables Alman Fletcher, Delroy Brown, Marvin Campbell, Devon Bernard, Dwayne Lynch, Paul Williams and Tajay Allen appeared before the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court today.
The court was told that a number of statements were outstanding from the prosecution’s case-file.
They are to return to court on March 6.
The cops were attached to the St James police division at the time of their arrest for breaches of the Corruption (Prevention) Act.
The seven policemen were charged with extortion, corruptly soliciting money, corruptly accepting money, and aiding and abetting, after allegedly taking $300,000 from a businessman instead of prosecuting him.
