KINGSTON, Jamaica — Police Thursday evening arrested a male juror who attempted to bribe the foreman of the panel.

News broke minutes before the afternoon sitting that a bribe attempt had been made.

The foreman rejected the offer and made a report.

At the beginning of the afternoon session Justice Lennox Campbell summoned the prosecution, defence and DPP Paula Llewellyn to his chambers to discuss the matter.

The decision was made to continue the trial.
