Defence lawyers in the case involving the three soldiers implicated in the murder of businessman Keith Clarke in May 2010 have indicated they will apply for the venue of the case to be changed.
Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn.
The case is being heard in the Home Circuit Court, but the lawyers say they want it changed in the interest of justice.
Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn, has suggested that they submit the relevant affidavits so they can be in a position to assist the court in deciding in the best venue.
In the meantime, the defence lawyers complained that they were still receiving directives from Terrence Williams, the commissioner of the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).
They said they received correspondence from Williams up to yesterday, saying he wanted four firearms for retesting.
They called on the court for protection and guidance because they said it was a matter which should be supervised by the court.
Llewellyn explained that on Thursday, she spoke to the INDECOM commissioner and he told her INDECOM had obtained the services of a forensic ballistics expert and there was a special instrument available to do the testing.
The accused are lance corporals Greg Tinglin and Odel Buckley and private Arnold Henry.
