(Jamaica Observer) REGGAE singer Jah Cure remains in police custody in The Netherlands after being arrested and charged with assault following an alleged stabbing incident involving show promoter Nicardo “Papa” Blake of Roots Vibes Promotion on October 1.
“What I know is that once you are arrested in Holland, in six to eight hours, you will get a government-appointed lawyer if you cannot get one for yourself,” a Jamaican restaurateur in Amsterdam, who requested anonymity, told the Jamaica Observer.
“The Jamaican community in Amsterdam is embarrassed by the incident. It doesn’t look good. It’s not a nice situation for us; it makes all Jamaicans look bad,” she continued.
Several queries e-mailed to the Jamaican Consulate in The Netherlands went unanswered up to press time.
