The three-member Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) Disciplinary Committee panel are now making their deliberations.
The 31-year-old sprinter, one of the most decorated athletes in Jamaica’s history, was tested positive for a banned substance, which may be regarded as a masking agent for performance-enhancing substances, at the May 4 Jamaica International Invitational inside the National Stadium.
Campbell-Brown employed the services of former Jamaican Prime Minister and Attorney-at-Law, P.J. Patterson and high-profile overseas attorney Howard Jacobs to lead her defnce.
The JAAA is being represented by Leonard Green.
The hearing started Monday morning behind closed doors at a private property owned by Attorney-at-Law Winston Spaulding on Balmoral Avenue in St Andrew.
However, the hearing was relocated on the second day to a Guardsman Group location at 107 Old Hope Road.
Chairman Lensley Wolfe, Dr Aggrey Irons and Lincoln Eatmon are expected to arrive at a final decision soon; a decision, which will then be sent to the IAAF along with full transcripts, for ratification by the international track and field authority.
