Police have said that a summons has been issued for the arrest of dancehall artiste Beenie Man in connection with an illegal party held last month.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in charge of St Elizabeth, Narda Simms, made the revelation as she issued a stern warning to party promoters and patrons.
“There is a summons in the possession of the police for Moses Davis also known as Beenie Man for a party held on the 29th of November. Now, let me take the opportunity to appeal to law abiding citizens to do the right thing, to adhere to the Disaster Risk Management Act (DRMA) and to continue to support our actions in regards to COVID-19, “ said Simms.
“If you have your parties we are going to catch upon you and when we catch upon, you will be prosecuted with full force of the law,” added Simms.
Simms also revealed that the police were aware of an event being promoted by the popular dancehall entertainer, noting that patrons will be prosecuted if they attend.
“This event for which no permit was issued would clearly be in breach of the DRMA, hence this warning is being issued to him not to host any event in St. Elizabeth or anywhere else in Jamaica,” said Simms.
“Patrons who intend to attend this event are also being warned not to attend as they too would be in breach of the DRMA and will be prosecuted when caught”, she added.
