The One Don Gang trial has been adjourned until November 1.   The long-running trial, which is one day shy of a year, resumed in the Home Circuit Court this morning.   The adjournment came after the attorneys representing the 27 defendants completed closing submissions.   Chief Justice Bryan Sykes, who has been presiding over the largest gang trial in the Caribbean, told the court that he will reveal what he makes of the evidence that has been presented.   Justice Sykes explained that he has other engagements in the month of October which would consequently impact the trial.    Prior to the adjournment, Justice Sykes enquired about proof of the death of one of the alleged gangsters who was killed on August 11 .   Defendant, Andre Smith, who was on bail, was shot dead on Hagley Park Road, St. Andrew.   The 29-year-old, otherwise called Bolo, was one of the 28 remaining defendants on trial.   When the matter was called up, Mr. Smith’s attorney Alexander Shaw informed the court of his passing.   Justice Sykes asked the chief investigator whether he had proof of Mr. Smith’s death.   He further questioned why, after five weeks, there was nothing to submit to the court.   The investigator explained that he was awaiting the scene of crime CD which was promised to him on Friday but had been pushed back to Tuesday.
