The trial of the three policemen charged with the murders of two men, who disappeared from a plaza along Washington Boulevard in St. Andrew is to continue today.
Senior deputy director of public prosecutions, Dirk Harrison, is expected to continue addressing the 12-member jury in the Home Circuit Court.
Corporals Paul Edwards and Louie Lynch and Assistant Superintendent Victor Barrett on are trial in connection with the disappearance of 20-year-old Kemar Walters and 44-year-old Oliver Duncan on December 23, 2004.
The Crown’s main witness, who is a former policeman, has testified that Edwards told him that the men were shot and killed.
Barrett is accused of covering up the incident after a report was made to him.
The three policemen have given unsworn statements denying that they were involved in the incident.
However last week Thursday, when Harrison addressed the jury he said the Crown's main witness was the voice of the two men who were abducted.
Harrison said there was an attempt by the accused men to paint the witness as a liar.
