The Court has ruled that prominent clergyman, the Reverend Merrick Al Miller does have a case to answer in his corruption trial.

Reverend Miller is accused of perverting the Court of Justice.

He was charged in 2010 after the country’s then most wanted man, Christopher Dudus Coke was found in his company.

His attorney, Jacqueline Samuels Brown had made a no case submission last month.

But Resident Magistrate Simone Wolfe-Reece this morning rejected the application for the case to be dismissed.

Coke, who was wanted for extradition to the United States, was found in Reverend Miller’s Sports Utility Vehicle, which was traveling along the Mandela High Way.

The clergyman has proclaimed his innocence, arguing that he was transporting Coke to the US Embassy in Kingston to surrender to US authorities.

This morning’s court ruling means Reverend Miller will now have to mount a defence against the corruption charge.
