Buju Banton and his lawyers have made another request to the US government for the Gargamel’s case to be tried separately from the other two men charged in the drug saga.

 

But the court has orally denied the request.

 

Meanwhile prominent attorney at law David Rowe is warning that Buju Banton take a plea deal as the current situation may not work in the dancehall deejay’s favour.

Buju’s trial is currently set on the September trial calendar. While a status conference hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, August 4, 2010, at 3:30 p.m.

 

Buju Banton has been in lockup since December 10 last year.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
