(Jamaica Observer) Legal luminary Bert Samuels, QC says the bench warrant issued for Popcaan’s arrest for his non-appearance in the Yallahs Traffic Court in St Thomas, yesterday, is normal operational procedure.
According to the high-profile attorney-at-law, the dancehall deejay returned from England on Wednesday and had to observe the mandatory 14-day quarantine period.
“He returned to the island yesterday (Wednesday) and he’s in quarantine,” Samuels told the Jamaica Observer on Thursday.
“The normal and usual process is that his attorney goes to court and explain the circumstances for his absence. The court then says: ‘No problem.’ But issues a bench warrant, which the court must do, but in will be stayed. And in this instance, it will be stayed until 4th of November. Nothing will be done, so it’s a normal process… so this is what is expected to be done,” he continued.
