The prosecution is moving to expedite the trial of a number of policemen from Clarendon who’ve been implicated in the so-called ‘death squad’ probe by the Independent Commission of Investigations, INDECOM.
The eleven policemen appeared today in the Half-Way Tree Criminal Court in St. Andrew.
Attorney-at-law, Peter Champagnie, represents Constable Pete Samuels, one of the accused policemen.
Mr. Champagnie says the prosecution announced to the court that it’ll be seeking a voluntary bill of indictment to transfer the cases of most of the accused policemen to the Home Circuit Court in downtown, Kingston.
Mr. Champagnie says his client was offered bail in the sum of 1-point-5 million dollars.
Among those charged, some with multiple murders are: Sergeants Leford Gordon and Mario Taylor.
Detective Corporal Kevin Adams, Constables Damon Robinson, Romaine Delahaye, Carl Bucknor, Shannon Allen, Jerome White and Collis ‘Chuckie’ Brown.
They’re alleged to have killed at least six men between May 25, 2011, and April this year.
