International reggae superstar, Mark 'Buju Banton' Myrie will be heading back to the Sam M Gibbons Federal Court for the matter of his bail bond to be reviewed by Magistrate Judge Anthony E Porcelli tomorrow.

According to reports, the four-time Grammy nominee and his legal team are in a disagreement with the prosecution over the security company they want to hire for Banton’s round-the-clock security detail.

As part of his bail conditions, it was stipulated that Banton be placed under house arrest, have a 24-hour security detail, at his expense, and wear an electronic monitoring device. The security detail is to ensure that Banton does not violate the terms of his house arrest.

Judge Porcelli had also ruled that the government agree with whatever security arrangement Banton is putting in place.

Buju Banton was offered bail in the sum of $250,000 bail after his cocaine and gun trial ended in September with a hung jury.
