Already dogged by drug-related charges, international reggae artiste, Buju Banton, is to face the courts in the United States, on an additional charge, on February 7.

The United States District Court decided to add possession of a firearm to the list of charges that are already tagged to Buju’s case.

Buju’s first trial in the United States, ended in a mistrial, after the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict, in September 2010.

Buju's charges consist of conspiracy to possess, with intent to distribute cocaine, and aiding and abetting the possession of a firearm during a drug-trafficking offence.
