Dancehall star Mavado who currently resides in the USA has officially broken his silence with regards to the guilty verdict of his 18-year-old son Dante Brooks who is expected to be sentenced soon.
Mavado kicks off his surprise statement by giving thanks to all the people that have supported him and his family during these trying times.
He continued pointing out the corruption that stands in Jamaica’s justice system, he said “Corruption corruption corruption Jah know star! Some ppl are so fucking wicked how could a man change his statement over 4 times, even went on the stand and said that the police alter his statement”.
David Brooks did not stop there, he continued “The police came to my home and took my son from my house in Norbrook, lock up 5 other family members for no reason, which resulted in two of my family members losing their jobs because they were in jail for days without any charges 🤔”.
Mavado also questioned the witness statements which changed several times during the ordeal, “This man also went on the stand and said that these same police officers who carried out the arrest of my son & my family from my home are working for me and he feared his life. The same man who claim he feared his life, still gave over 14 pages of statements? The inconsistencies inna this man statement only shed light on the corruption” he stated.
In concluding his statement the Gully God outlined that he will fight for the freedom of his son and also his co-accused who was also found guilty, he stated “I promise to fight for the lives of these Two innocent youths. It’s like my son was found guilty before trial, but I’m going to point out everything and the injustice one day at a time”.
On the other hand, HIGH-PROFILE lawyer Peter Champagnie, QC said he’s planning to appeal the guilty verdict, which was handed down to his client, Dancehall singjay Mavado’s son, Dante Brooks.
Brooks, who is now 18-years-old, was found guilty of the murder of Lorenzo Thomas in the Home Circuit Court in Downtown Kingston on Wednesday.
He was also convicted of illegal possession of a firearm and arson. Andre Hinds the co-accused was also found guilty of the capital offence.
