by Brian Bonitto (Jamaica Observer) Jah Cure will continue serving his six-year prison sentence for attempted manslaughter, a court in the Netherlands ruled on Tuesday.
The reggae singer appeared in court on Tuesday for a pro forma hearing. He is scheduled to return on January 24.
“Today there was a pro forma. There’s no news at this point. The suspect stays in detention and there is another pro forma hearing planned for January 24, 2023,” Tuscha Essed, press officer at the Public Prosecution Office to the Court of Appeals in the Netherlands, told the Jamaica Observer.
In the Netherlands, a pro forma hearing occurs every 90 days during which a judge decides whether or not a jailed person should remain in detention.
In March 2022, Jah Cure (given name Siccature Alcock) was sentenced to six years for stabbing a show promoter over unpaid monies. The artiste, who was acquitted of attempted murder, has been incarcerated since October 2021.
