Beenie Man charged with breaching Covid regulations in JA

Veteran entertainer Beenie Man whose given name is Moses Davis is set to appear in the St Elizabeth Parish Court on February 10 for breaches of the Disaster Risk Management Act (DRMA).

Head of the St Elizabeth police, Deputy Superintendent Narda Simms confirmed late Thursday evening that the entertainer was served a summons earlier that day.

Beenie allegedly held an entertainment event which was in contravention of the DRMA on November 29.

In a 25 seconds video on social media Beenie is also seen promoting a New Year’s Eve party.
“St Elizabeth if uno know weh the party deh reach, so you know say a New Year’s Eve and we haffi ring in the New Year nuh care weh who wan say…… The party name 12 to 7,” he said in the video.

This isn’t the first incident involving Beenie Man breaching protocols.

The artiste had a birthday party earlier in the year in spite of parties being banned. Many of the people at his party were seen mingling without masks or social distancing.

Additionally, the party numbers were above the 15 per gathering that the law allowed.
Many from the party – including some of Dancehall’s finest went into self-isolation following reports that some persons at the party later became sick with Covid-19.
