Reggae singer Jah Cure had his hopes cut short earlier this week after a Dutch judge ruled that the Jamaican crooner would remain behind bars and continue serving his six-year sentence for attempted manslaughter in the Netherlands.
The ruling came as part of the proceedings in a routine pro forma court session on Tuesday, August 9.
Under Dutch laws, it is a requirement that a judgment must be made every ninety days regarding whether or not the suspect will be remanded for an additional period not exceeding three months.
It will be some time before Jah Cure’s trial begins after the Prosecutors filed an appeal against the singer’s acquittal on the attempted murder charge following his sentencing.
Jah Cure’s legal team has also filed an appeal to overturn this attempted manslaughter conviction.
Siccature Alcock, better known by his stage name Jah Cure, was convicted by a Dutch court of attempted manslaughter in March 2022 for the stabbing of a show promoter in October 2021 over unpaid money. He was sentenced to six years in prison. However, he was cleared of all charges related to an alleged attempted murder.
