The prosecution’s second witness who took to the stand on Wednesday, on Friday broke out in dramatic tears before the court while continuing to give his testimony in the trial surrounding the 33 alleged members of the “One Don” faction of the notorious “Klansman Gang”, arrested earlier this year.
The Friday court session saw the witness who professed to be an ex-member of the gang giving information about his best friend, who he reported to be a member of the group, and who he accused of having carried out illegal activities in Spanish Town.
According to the witness, he and his best friend attended primary and High school together, and he even knew the parents and siblings of his former gang counterpart.
Right there and then everything is said to have changed in the court when the witness broke out in tears and held down his head in a pity party, going on to wipe the tears from his eyes with a handkerchief.
The actions of the witness did not go without a reaction as the reports from the Jamaica Observer, is that several alleged members of the gang, made laughter outbursts as if to send a message that the man testifying before the judge was lying.
Proceeding with his testimony, the witness identified his best friend among the accused in the dock, then went on to state that the man he was familiar with since his childhood, took part in the alleged extortions that took place in Spanish Town.
The witness said while he was a member of the gang he climbed the ranks until he eventually secured a top tier post in the organization and even had the alleged leader of the “One Don” group, Andre “Blackman” Bryan, place him at one time as the “Don” for the community of Lauriston in Spanish Town.
