Dutch Prosecutors Wants 8 Years For Jah Cure
Written by 1.02010 on March 9, 2022
Jah Cure is facing an eight-year jail sentence should he be convicted for the stabbing of an Amsterdam promoter on October 1 last year.
Jah Cure is on trial for attempted manslaughter, aggravated assault, and attempted aggravated assault, and he is being represented by Dutch Attorney-at-Law, Jan-Hein Kuijpers. In speaking in court, Jah Cure told the Judge to Google him after they said they did not know who he was.
According to Amsterdam news site Het Parool, the prosecution’s case theory was that Jah Cure’s actions prior to the stabbing showed it was premeditated, and he intended to wound and kill the promoter.
The prosecution argued that the stabbing incident was preceded by an argument over monies owed to Jah Cure in the sum of $5000 euros for a concert he performed at days before at Melkweg.
The prosecution shared several threatening messages Cure sent to the promoter Nicardo Blake.
“I’m going to jail for you, pu**yhole,” one of the texts read.
In addition, he said, “This is the n* I have to kill,” and shortly after, he stabbed Blake, who received emergency medical attention but has since recovered from the wound.
According to the Prosecution, Blake received a “deep” stab wound of two centimeters and had to undergo major surgery. Jah Cure, who appeared in court on Tuesday, also claimed he acted in self-defense.
