Members of the public and of the media were excused from the morning session of the murder case involving dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel due to the sensitive evidence which is being given.
At the resumption of the case, lead prosecutor, Jeremy Powell made an application for the testimony which was to be presented to the court be done without the presence of the media and members of the general public.
The reason given for the exclusion of the media and public was that the evidence being given could affect issues of national security and the public interest if it was made known.
The testimony being given is by detective sergeant Patrick Linton, who was the police communication forensics and cyber-crimes unit around the time of the alleged murder of Clive "Lizard" Williams.
The officer will give testimony about the electronic evidence retrieved from ceased devices in relation to this alleged murder case.
The jury was also excused from the court as it will be determined by the attorneys and the judge if the evidence given by Linton will be admitted in the case.
