Popcaan’s Lawyer Speaks

According to Popcaan’s lawyer, Bert Samuels, Popcaan treated the police with utmost respect when they stormed the stage around 5 am.

He affirmed that Popcaan greeted the police and neither has he been charged with indecent language, threatening the police nor breaching the permit.

 

The legal mind further faulted the police stringent rules in holding concerts within the parishes while citing sabotage towards concerts.

Bert further appealed to the authorities to borrow a leaf from Europe which allows artists to hold reggae concerts peacefully.

Popcaan is set to have his first court hearing on January 10, 2024 with Bert as his attorney.
