BUSY FOR COURT TODAY

Busy Signal

Embattled dancehall deejay Busy Signal is hoping to put his latest legal problems behind him, so that he can focus totally on his music.

The artiste who has recently returned from the United States after serving time in prison has been slapped with several charges stemming from his arrest last year on an extradition warrant.

Busy has been charged with obtaining passports in a false name and he is to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court today.

Allegations are that the artiste unlawfully obtained three Jamaican passports in the name Reanno Gordon, which he used in his travels abroad as an entertainer.

In an interview with THE STAR last night, Busy Signal's manager, Shane Brown, said that the artiste wants to put this matter behind him.

Brown said that the artiste didn't have three valid passports at once, but because of his frequent travels, the artiste had exhausted several passports.

"Busy didn't have three valid passports, it's just that because he travels a lot, you find that the pages in his passport were exhausted, so it wasn't a case where he was using three passports," Brown said.

He further added that the artiste has already done his time in the US and Busy just wants to put this local matter past him.

"I am not worried about this issue because he has done his time in the US, we just want to get this over and done with. Busy' birth given name is Glendale Gordon; but by a deed poll he had changed his name to Reanno Devon Gordon , so that's his legal name," Brown said.

Busy returned to Jamaica late last year, after serving six months in a US prison for absconding bail.

The artiste was extradited to the US, where he had pleaded guilty to a February 2002 incident in which he was charged with two counts related to cocaine trafficking.
