NEW!! Reggae star Buju Banton could walk free due to a supposed violation of rights

by Natalie Monique
According to recent reports, popular, Grammy Award winning Reggae Dancehall artiste Buju Banton could have his case dismissed, due to violation of his rights as the Defendant in the case. The singer was arrested and sentenced to ten years in prison earlier this year, for drug-related charges, after a lengthy trial period. It is now being discovered that the US government may have violated the Speedy Trial Act. In judging speedy trial claims, the US Supreme Court has developed a four-part test that considers the length of the delay, the reasons for the delay, the defendant’s assertion of his right to a speedy trial, and the prejudice to the defendant.

Wikipedia defines the Act as, ‘One of the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution to defendants in criminal proceedings. The right to a Speedy trial guaranteed by The Sixth Amendment, is intended to ensure that defendants are not subjected to unreasonably lengthy incarceration prior to a fair trial. The length of time can either be defined by statute (vary by states) except murder, or the charges are dismissed by action of law without regard to the merits of the case.’ They add that there are exceptions in cases where the delay is requested by the defendant.

Just last week, Banton’s David Markus led legal team filed an appeal in the Georgia Appeals court claiming violation of this Act. Buju’s first trial took place in Septemeber 2010, which was nine (9) months after his initial arrest. The Jamaica Observer reported that he was convicted after waiting another four months after trial, this being the second delay having been ‘pushed back’ by the Judge, US Magistrate James Moody.

Sources also said on both occasions, Buju’s lawyers had requested a shorter trial filing a motions stating, “Today, on May 28, 2010, the court has again continued the case another 70 days plus until the September trial calendar. No reason has been given for the continuance until September. No findings have been made. Mr Myrie remains incarcerated in the county jail. This is presenting an enormous burden on Mr Myrie, his witnesses, and his counsel. Through this pleading, we demand a speedy trial as required under the act and the constitution.”

Interesting…. We will keep you updated on the development of this. Since his arrest, multitudes of Buju fans across the globe and fellow artistes continue to express their hopes of seeing the Artiste walk free again, as is evident on the various Social networks, and campaigns set up in his support.
