Popular reggae singer, Jah Cure is set to appear at the Amsterdam court in an open session in January 2022.
On Monday, when he appeared in the Council Chamber, Cure’s pre-trial detention was extended by an additional 83 days.
“At the beginning of January 2022 the suspect will be summoned to appear at the Amsterdam court in an open session,” Franklin Wattimena, press officer of the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service, said in a release on Tuesday.
Once he is summoned to an open session, members of the public will be able to attend, and journalists are also able to follow, and report on the proceedings.
“The 43-year old man is suspected of attempted murder, attempted manslaughter, aggravated assault or attempted aggravated assault. He has a public defender. We don’t give his name until the first public hearing,” Wattimena said.
Few weeks ago, Jah Cure celebrated his birthday behind bars after he was arrested for stabbing an individual at a bar in Netherlands.
