The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) has been tasked by Mavado’s attorney, Oswest Senior-Smith to secure information on whether the entertainer has any warrants out for his arrest in Jamaica.
This is in relation to an ongoing lawsuit that the entertainer has in the country with disbarred attorney-at-law, Jennifer Messado for an amount of $30.7 million that she allegedly defrauded him in a bogus real-estate deal.
The trial for this case has been set to start on September 12, whereby Messado will be answering the charge of obtaining money by false pretence.
A request was submitted by Mavado’s lawyer seeking permission for him to be granted approval to give testimony in the trial via video link while in the United States (US). However, a condition of this request is that the “I Am So Special” entertainer has no outstanding arrest warrants in Jamaica.
According to the Jamaica Observer, the ODPP is scheduled to present its findings in court on September 29, 2022. More so, no reports have been made indicating a change in the initial trial date for early September considering that information on outstanding arrest warrants is now required in order to approve the entertainer’s request to be present for the trial by videoconference.
David Brooks otherwise called Mavado is a Jamaican Dancehall deejay who is popularly known for hit singles such as, “I’m On The Rock“, “Force It Up” and “Mi Neva Believe Yuh“.
