Prosecutors in the United States are to formally outline their case against Jamaican entertainer Busy Signal next week.
This announcement came after the entertainer, whose real name is Glendale Goshia Gordon, made his first court appearance in the State of Minnesota yesterday.
Busy Signal was arrested by the Jamaican police on May 21 on an extradition warrant, after US authorities revealed that he was wanted in Minnesota for absconding bail on drug-related charges in 2002.
Gordon was extradited on Tuesday after waiving his right to a hearing in Jamaica, but his attorney Bill Mauzy had no comment on the charges following yesterday’s court appearance.
Attorney-at-law K D Knight, who represented the entertainer in Jamaica, has insisted that US prosecutors cannot resurrect the drug charges against him, as he only agreed to be extradited on the charge of absconding bail.
Knight argued that any attempt to resurrect the drug charges would constitute a breach of the Extradition Treaty between Jamaica and the US.
