Security measures were stepped up today at the Supreme Court as the trial of 25-year-old reputed gang leader Christopher ‘Dog Paw’ Linton began in the Gun Court.
Soldiers are normally on duty at various locations at the courthouse whenever high risks prisoners are taken to court.
But there had been complaints from some of the police personnel manning the courts that security is inadequate, especially on Fridays when large numbers of prisoners are taken to court to have their cases mentioned.
In the meantime, in the case against Dog Paw, the Crown is alleging that Linton was found in possession of a firearm when he was captured.
He is facing trial for illegal possession of a firearm.
One witness has so far testified and Linton has been remanded to return to court next Thursday.
Linton is charged with other men for other gun crimes and those cases are pending in the Gun Court.
Linton is also charged for the pre-dawn slaying of three family members in Bedward Gardens, St Andrew, in December 2010.
In that incident, a six-year-old boy, his 31-year-old mother and a 49-year-old taxi operator were fatally shot.
