Prosecutors apply for new evidence to be admitted into latest 'death squad' trial

As the trial of the three policemen accused of the murder of Andrew Bisson continues, prosecutors have applied to trial judge Chief Justice Bryan Sykes to admit into evidence two statements from their key witness, who is now deceased.
 
The individual was killed in 2016.
  
Corporal Kevin Adams, District Constable Howard Brown and Constable Carl Bucknor, who are accused of being members of a so called Clarendon-based 'death squad', are on trial for the September 2011 murder Mr. Bisson in Corn Piece, Hayes, Clarendon.
 
The police reported that Mr. Bisson, who was a suspect in the murder of a female returned resident, was killed in a reported shootout.
 
However, INDECOM prosecutors claimed he was arrested and then taken into a house where he was shot.
 
The prosecutors want two statements from the key witness admitted under the Evidence Act.
 
However, the Chief Justice has raised concern about the signatures on the statements.
 
The prosecutors have told the judge that they will be calling in a handwriting expert.
 
The hearing continues on Wednesday.
