Judge reserves decision over Coke’s review

| 04/06/2010

(CNS): Jamaica’s Chief Justice Zaila McCalla reserved judgment on Friday in the application for a judicial review filed by lawyers representing Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke. McCalla promised to deliver her verdict ‘as soon as possible’ over the extradition of the alleged drug lord to the United States, the Jamaica Observer reports. Coke’s lawyers are seeking to prevent him from being extradited over drug and firearms charges and to over turn the decision by Justice Minister Dorothy Lightbourne to send him to the US. Coke currently remains on the run eluding security forces since a warrant was issued in the wake of the extradition announcement last month.

 Local reports reveal that Sandra Coke, Dudus’ sister is now in police custody after she was handed over to the police by clergyman Al Miller, who also handed over his brother Laighton ‘Levity’ Coke earlier this week. ‘Sandie Coke is wanted by Jamaican police as she is suspected of criminal gang affiliation.

The police have pulled in around 50 suspected gang members since Prime Minister Bruce Golding announced a limited state of emergency two weeks ago but the main man remains at large.
