Four witnesses testified today at the trial of the three policemen charged in connection with the December 23, 2004 murders of two men who were abducted from a plaza on Washington Boulevard, St Andrew.
On trial are Assistant Superintendent of Police Victor Barrett and Constables Paul Edwards and Louie Lynch.
Senior Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Dirk Harrison in outlining the prosecution's case said that on December 23, 2004, the deceased men, Kemar Walters and Oliver Duncan, went to Washington Plaza on the outskirts of Patrick Gardens between 3 and 4 in the afternoon.
Harrison said there was a common plot between constables Paul Edwards and Louie Lynch and that Assistant Superintendent Barrett covered up the deeds of the constables.
The mother of Duncanís children, Susan Osborne ,testified that the last time she saw him alive was on the afternoon of December 23, 2004.
Under cross examination, she said earlier that day a man by the name of Paul had threatened Duncan and five days later he return to their home and told her he was dead.
Meanwhile, Claudette Angus, the mother of Walters, said that she saw her son two Sundays before he went missing on December 23, 2004.
She said she made several attempts to find her son by visiting police stations and then reporting her son's disappearance to the Internal Affairs Bureau of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, where a missing person's report was filed.
The trial continues tomorrow.
