KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Head of the Flying Squad Cornwall ‘Bigga’ Ford was Monday morning re-summoned by Lennox Campbell, presiding Judge in the Vybz Kartel murder trial underway in the Home Circuit Court.
Ford was re-summoned to speak on comments he made in a recent article regarding new policy on the handling of phones seized from suspects. The cop was recalled based on a complaint by defence attorney Tom Tavares-Finson.
Tavares-Finson argued that the article and Ford’s comments may have been prejudicial to the accused, who are facing a murder charge.
Kartel (Adijah Palmer) fellow entertainer Shawn Campbell, popularly known as Shawn Storm, André St John, Shane Williams and Kahira Jones are on trial for the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams, believed committed on August 16, 2011.
Justice Campbell earlier Monday summoned head of the police’s Corporate Communications Unit DSP Steve Brown to answer question in court.
