The One Don Klansman Gang Trial that was scheduled to reconvene this morning at 10, has been delayed further.
The trial will instead resume next Monday July 18.
The 28 accused were transported to court from their separate lockup facilities, lawyers and other court staff were present but the door to Chief Justice Bryan Sykes’ courtroom was closed.
Up to news time the reason for the delay was not clearly stated by the Court Administration Division.
But this follows a one week pause on the proceedings after news that Chief Justice Sykes had tested positive for COVID-19.
The defence was expected to continue its case for 4 of the 28 remaining defendants.
The court had ordered subpoenas for five officers to appear as witnesses for the defence.
It is unclear if those officers have been located, two of whom have been on suspension.
The officers are expected to verify records from the Spanish Town Police Station for them to be admitted as evidence.
