No Comments

Dancehall reggae artiste Buju Banton will officially return to court on February 7 for the second round in his drug case in the United States.
In addition to Buju receiving a new court date, Buju will now face an additional charge of possession of a firearm when he returns to court. He also faces charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and aiding and abetting the possession of a firearm during a drug-trafficking offence.
A mistrial was declared in Buju Banton’s first trial in the United States, after the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict in September 2010.
Buju continues to maintain his innocence while his legal team is contending that the United States government entrapped him.
The Gargamel is set to perform on his Buju and Friends concert on Jan 16 at Bayfront Park Amphitheater in Miami.
