Five men detained under the current States of Emergency, SOEs, are to appear in the Supreme Court in downtown Kingston this morning.
They’re Everton Douglas, Nicholas Heat, Courtney Hall, Courtney Thompson, and Gavin Noble.
Supreme Court Justice Bertram Morrison ordered on Wednesday that the five men be taken to the Supreme Court at 10:00 am today.
They’re currently detained under SOEs in Kingston Eastern, St Andrew South, Westmoreland, and Clarendon.
Some of the men have been in custody for more than a year without being charged with a crime.
Last week, their attorneys, Isat Buchanan and John Clarke, announced that the Supreme Court ruled their detentions unconstitutional.
However, that declaration has not yet been made.
According to Director of Client Services Communication and Information in the Court Administration Division, Kadiesh Jarrett-Fletcher all that happened was that the Judge indicated he heard sufficient information to cause him to have a further enquiry into the matter.
In a statement to Nationwide News last Friday Mrs. Jarrett-Fletcher said this is why a hearing date was scheduled.
She said at this hearing, both sides will have the opportunity to present their case.
She said at that point, the Judge will make a determination as to how best to dispose of the matter, whether by bail or remand.
