Jamaican Druglord ‘Dudus’ Coke Refuses To Attend Tivoli Enquiry 

  

Via Jamaica Observer– Efforts by Public Defender Arlene Harrison Henry to have former Tivoli Gardens don Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke testify in the Tivoli Enquiry have hit a brick wall.

Queen’s Counsel Lord Gifford told the enquiry on Monday that the public defender made an attempt, through Coke’s attorney in the United States, to have him return to the island and give evidence but Coke said that he wasn’t interested in participating. 

Former Public Defender Earl Witter had recommended in his interim report that the enquiry hear from Coke.

Coke in serving a 20-year sentence in the US after being extradited in June 2010 to face drugs and gunrunning charges. 

He pleaded guilty to reduced charges.

The enquiry is looking into the deaths of 73 people resulting from the police-military operation to apprehend Coke in May 2010.
