KINGSTON – After an initial denial, the state-owned Urban Development Corporation (UDC) has admitted that it hired and is still paying millions of dollars to a company partially owned by extradited west Kingston strongman Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke.The UDC says it has one contract with the firm Bulls Eye Security Services Limited, but it is still checking its records to see if there are any others.Late last month, the UDC told The Gleaner that it had not issued any contract to Bulls Eye, which lists Coke as a shareholder. Coke was previously listed as a director, but is believed to have pulled out because of requirements that would force him to be fingerprinted.But, last week, in a letter to The Gleaner, the UDC said it erred in its denial.
