Chief Executive Officer of the West Indies Alumina Company (WINDALCO) Leonid Stavitski is to reappear in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on April 3, to answer to alleged environmental breaches by the company.
When he appeared in court today, the Crown said it was yet to receive a statement from a government employee.
A representative from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution said the man who collected samples of dead fish in relation to the case is not cooperating with the investigation.
Resident Magistrate Marcia Dunbar-Green then subpoenaed the statement of the witness.
The Crown is alleging that on July 29, Stavitski being the CEO of WINDALCO caused untreated effluent to be discharged into the Rio Cobre in St Catherine.
The National Environment and Planning Agency has reported that the substance caused a massive fish kill in the river.
