Rev. Al Miller To Face Court Today In Dudus Case

Popular clergyman Reverend Al Miller heads to court this morning (November 6th)  to answer the charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice. 

The pastor and businessman was slapped with the charge follow a massive operation by personnel from the military and the police force to capture then Tivoli Gardens strongman Christopher 'Dudus' Coke.

Coke was being sought by the local authorities for the execution of an arrest warrant. The US Government had sent an extradition request for Coke to face trial on gun and drug related charges. 

Days into the intense 2010 operation, Miller was found in the company of Coke in a car along the Mandela Highway, St Catherine. 

When he was held, the pastor reportedly told the lawmen he was escorting Coke to the U.S Embassy in Kingston for him to surrender to authorities there. After waiving his rights, Coke was subsequently extradited, charged and is currently serving 23 years in a U.S. federal prison.
