Team Banton Back To Court March 4th

The legal team representing Buju Banton, led by noted criminal defense attorney, David Oscar Markus, will be back in Tampa for two court hearings on the morning of Thursday, March 4th. The first hearing will simply reconfirm the trial start date, which has been tentatively set for Monday, April 19th. The Magistrate Judge appointed to the case, Thomas Wilson, will then hold a second, key hearing to address the series of motions filed by Markus, who contends that the DEA used a paid informant to entrap Buju Banton. One motion reads in part:

“The facts and circumstances of the confidential sources’ contacts with Mr. Myrie display a deliberate effort by a paid informant to ensnare a perfect stranger, who happened to be sitting next to him on an international flight, into committing a crime, thereby ensuring the informant more money…”

“The confidential source is a paid government informant. In addition to refusing to disclose the identity, the government has refused to identify the prior cases in which he has been involved, the outcomes of those cases, the amount of money he has earned making cases for the government, or even the amount he has been paid (or expects to be paid) in this case…”

It goes without saying that March 4th should prove to be a very interesting and especially revealing day in court. Big up to David Markus, Marc Seitles and the rest of the team working day and night on Buju’s case. We are thankful… We are confident… We will win this!

    Please can Managers of this website explain what is happening with Buju Banton (B/B) court case?

    Some of last weeks newspapers reported that, B/B court case is now not going to commence for at least another few more weeks.

    As someone who is concerned about B/B, I hope that information about what is happening to B/B, court case, is going to be posted on this website.

    Greeting to all the Buju Banton (B/B) defenders!

    I was preparing myself, for your 19-4-10 court case, though unconfirmed reports are now saying that the court case may not start in a few days. I have used the description “unconfirmed reports”, because although the newspaper report about B/B case seemed to be responsibly written, there is nothing on this website saying that B/B court case is not going to commence 19-4-10, and therefore confirmation of what is happening with B/B court case is requested.

    Please can the Managers of this website indicate when B/B court case is due to actually commence.

    Stay strong B/B and keep yourself in the Rastafari Spirit.

    Warrior Queen, 16-4-2010, London, England.

    Buju Banton (B/B) has to know that the real indicator from all of his fans and supporters, that means they are committed to working for the release of B/B, and B/B getting his liberty returned, is through organising, organising, and organising!

    Stay strong B/B.

    Give Thanx.
