Reggae artiste Jah Cure is slated to appear in an Amsterdam court tomorrow for his first public hearing to answer the charges that have been raised against him for the alleged stabbing of promoter Nicardo ‘Papa’ Blake.
Word on the case came from Franklin Wattimena, a Press Officer who works with the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service in Amsterdam, who said that the matter will also be stated by the prosecutor at the court of Amsterdam.
Wednesday’s trial according to Wattimena can be seen as a Pro-forma hearing which means that the case will not be substantively tried as yet, and another date for that process will need to be selected since the investigations surrounding the case is yet to be completed.
The hearing is set for the 11:45 am Netherlands time on the day which is equivalent to 5:45 am in Jamaican time, and will be a precursor to the substantive trial which will allow the prosecutors to access much more information about the case as well as to decide if Jah Cure will need to spend an extended time behind bars.
Jah Cure whose real name is Siccature Alcock has been behind bars since October of 2021 and has now spent more than 8 weeks behind the bars of a Netherlands Jail.
