Entertainers charged in COVID crackdown

Dancehall artiste Elephant Man and actor and night club operator Garfield ‘Bad Boy Trevor’ Reid will have to answer to various charges in court stemming from separate COVID-19 related incidents.

Elephant Man, given name Oneil Bryan, was yesterday charged with breaches of the Immigration Act after allegedly failing to declare that he travelled to Germany, one of many countries hit hard by COVID-19.

Bryan was yesterday served with summons at his home by cops attached to the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Unit.

As part of Jamaica’s COVID-19 protocol, travellers to Germany and several other countries are required to disclose that information to the authorities and are subjected to isolation for 14 days on entering Jamaica.

Last week, Elephant Man apologised to immigration officials, saying that he had incorrectly completed an immigration document.
