A video was shown to The Tivoli Enquiry commission of Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke sitting on a bed inside a cell at the Jamaica Defence Force’s headquarters, Up Park Camp.
In the never-before-released video, soldiers are seen inspecting the cell while Coke, decked in a white polo shirt, sat on the bed looking relaxed as he leaned back on both hands.
He engaged the soldiers in a seemingly friendly conversation and assured them that he would not try to escape. He asked about seeing his attorney and was told by Lieutenant Colonel David Cummings that arrangements are being made for him to see his lawyer.
Another picture was shown of a smiling Coke standing in the cell.
The enquiry was also told of a letter from Coke’s attorney, Tom Tavares-Finson, commending the soldiers for the way in which Coke was treated while in their custody.
Peep the video.
