The Reverend Al Miller is to go on trial on November 6 and 7 on charges of attempting to pervert the course of justice.
Reverend Miller was charged in 2010, after then fugitive Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke was found in the company of the pastor in a car along the Mandela Highway in St. Catherine.
Miller is to be tried in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.
On July 6, the reverend lost his battle in the Judicial Review Court to bar Resident Magistrate Georgianna Fraser from trying his case.
Miller had asked the Magistrate to step down from the case on the grounds that in 2010, she signed the warrant of arrest for Coke.
He also argued that Fraser had presided at the proceedings when Coke waived his right to an extradition hearing.
Fraser refused to step down from the case and Miller took the matter to the Judicial Review Court.
Senior Puisne Judge Gloria Smith heard the application and in handing down her decision on July 6 threw out Miller’s motion saying the grounds on which he had filed the application were without merit.
