KINGSTON, Jamaica — Assistant Commissioner of the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM), Hamish Campbell, today testified that Constable Collis "Chucky" Brown, who is being tried in the Home Circuit Court on three counts of murder, had confessed to being involved part of a police team that was killing people.

Brown is also on trial for conspiracy to murder and wounding with intent.

The Campbell, during his testimony, said that he and a colleague met with the accused on August 6, 2013 at a hotel in Mandeville, Manchester.

According to the INDECOM official, the policeman was very relaxed and amiable at first, jumping quickly into speaking about what was on his mind.

"It was an unburdening of the issues very quickly," he said.

However, the witness told the court that during the meeting, Brown was also frustrated with the Police High Command and upset at the way he was being treated by senior officers in respect to a fatal shooting incident that occurred at the May Pen Hospital.

Campbell's testimony follows closely on the heels of the one given by a human rights activist, who yesterday said that Brown had also met with her and told her that he was a part of a special squad "to deal with those that needed to be dealt with,” and "sort out badmen" in May Pen, Clarendon.
