DESCRIBING Monday’s offensive by the security forces as highly successful, Police Commissioner Owen Ellington said wanted fugitive Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke is still in Jamaica.
“The latest intelligence we have is that Coke is still in Jamaica,” Ellington said during a press briefing at Up Park Camp today, “He is now on the run and we will catch him.”
Ellington said Jamaica had been affected by transnational crime and Coke was a major player who feels he is an untouchable.
In August last year the United States Government formally requested the extradition of Coke to face gun and drug running charges.
“The difference with Coke is that he and persons loyal to him, believe that he is above the law. He believes that he should not be arrested in Jamaica and he should not face trial in Jamaica for crimes he has committed,” Ellington said.
Yesterday police pleaded with Coke and his brother Leighton ‘Livety’ Coke to turn themselves in.
