INFORMATION to the Jamaica Observer from out of the Supreme Court on Wednesday that permission was granted for the forfeiture of Christopher 'Dudus' Coke's assets has proved inaccurate.

Queen's Counsel Michael Hylton, who is representing the Government's Asset Recovery Agency, told the Observer that an application is currently before the court for forfeiture of Coke's assets but that it was not heard on Wednesday.

Hylton said a date is yet to be set for that hearing.

Coke's assets were frozen in 2010 when he was being pursued by local law enforcement personnel for extradition to the United States on drug- and gun-running charges. Coke, the former Tivoli Gardens don, was sentenced to 23 years' imprisonment last year.
