Dancehall artist Moses ‘Beenie Man’ Davis was arrested and charged for breaching the Disaster Risk Management Act (DRMA), and pleaded not guilty when he appeared before the St Elizabeth Parish Court in Black River.
Davis’ bail was extended until February 19, when he is slated to return to court. Subsequent to the court hearing, Gordon, his attorney, told “The Gleaner” that Davis was not the kind of person who would host an illegal party against Covid-19 protocols, the allegation that sparked his arrest.
“He has been charged with two offences arising out of an alleged incident in late November [at] some type of entertainment event. He has been charged with failing to obtain permission from superintendent, contrary to the Noise Abatement Act, and he has been charged with a breach of the curfew, contrary to the Disaster Risk Management [Act] order”, explained Gordon.
