A voir dire is taking place in the Supreme Court before Justice Claudette La Bennett; and yesterday, prosecution witness, Detective Superintendent of Police (retired) Charles Alleyne, gave his evidence-in-chief.
Defence counsel Peter Hugh began cross-examination. The matter will continue today with the continuation of cross-examination.
Last week Wednesday, the trial was aborted because one of the jurors was found to be related to a witness who is reportedly one of the investigating officers in the case. This is now the second voir dire (trial within a trial) that is taking place in this case.
Bacchus was found dead in bed at his Princes Street home on June 24, 2004, after he had made bombshell revelations about a death squad operating in the city, for which he said he once gathered information.
His brother, Shafeek Bacchus, had been killed a few months prior to his demise.
