KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Drama and confusion continued to reign on Thursday at the Commission of Enquiry into the extradition of Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, currently ongoing in Jamaica.

The latest interruption of the proceedings occurred when it became necessary to check a "powdery" substance sent to three attorneys in the case.

The Jamaica Gleaner reported that chairman of the Commission, Emil George, was forced to adjourn the proceedings for security checks after someone passed three envelopes to attorneys Hugh Small, K.D. Knight and Patrick Atkinson during the proceedings on Thursday afternoon.

Knight said that when he opened his envelope he saw a plastic lining and in the next layer there was a "powdery" substance, which caused some concern.

Small, the attorney for Prime Minister Bruce Golding, said he was concerned that the security of participants in the enquiry was being compromised.

After rigid security checks, the hearing continued.
