Dawg Paw case postponed again

KINGSTON, Jamaica — The gun trial of reputed gang leader Christopher ‘Dawg Paw’ Linton was postponed in the High Court division of the Gun court today.
The matter is now scheduled to continue on October 30. The postponement was due to the prosecution being unable to produce two civilian witnesses in the case.
If the prosecution does not produce the witnesses by the October date it will have to close its case, the Court said.
In the event that this happens the defence will then be called on to present their case.
Linton is represented by Attorney-at-law Dianne Jobson.
Linton, the alleged leader of the ‘Dawg Paw’ Gang in August Town, St Andrew, was arrested in January last year and charged with illegal possession of a firearm and abduction.
The trial started in June this year and has been postponed on at least three occasions.
