Dancehall entertainer Beenie man is to appear before the St Elizabeth parish court on February 10 after being cited for breaches of the Disaster Risk Management Act (DRMA).
The artiste, given name Moses Davis is said to have breached the DRMA in November.
Head of the St Elizabeth police, Deputy Superintendent Narda Simms confirmed that the artiste was served with his summons yesterday evening.
A short video has also been making the rounds on social media with Beenie Man promoting a New Year Eve Party, the date of the video, however, has not been ascertained.
DSP Simms addressed the issue on Thursday, stating,
“there is no permit for any party whatsoever; not for Beenie Man, not for anyone else.”
Promoters were also warned.
“If you have your parties, we are going to catch up on you and when we catch up on you, you will be prosecuted with the full force of the law”,
DSP Simms said.
The police also warned patrons that they will be prosecuted if caught at the event.
They say they will be exercising vigilance throughout Area 3 to prevent all illegal events in St Elizabeth, Clarendon and Manchester.
