If Alkaline really wants to be the next Vybz Karatel, he is doing an excellent job so far. The top flight deejay will be spending the weekend in jail. Hopefully he will not be joining his mentor/nemesis in lock up for the long term.
Senior Superintendent of Police Clinton Laing told 18 KARAT REGGAE that Alkaline will remain in custody as the investigation continues.
Alkaline’s attorney, Peter Champagnie, says he will not allow the vendetta boss’ rights to be violated and if no charges are filed against the deejay by Monday, he will be going to court to fight for his release.
Asked if Alkaline is being treated as a suspect or a witness in the matter, Laing said “we are seeing how best he can assist in a case”.
Attorney Peter Champagnie said that following the question and answer session on Thursday, the police indicated that they would review the material they had before deciding their next move.
Champagnie said there has been no word from the police about their next course of action.
He said that if his client is not released by Monday he will go to court to apply for an order to have him released.
The entertainer, whose given name is Earlan Bartley, along with his attorney, reported to the Area 4 Headquarters Thursday morning, where he was questioned in relation to an ongoing murder probe.
