Julien ‘Believe’ challenges COVID citation

Entertainer Julien “Believe” Thompson said police charged the wrong person for hosting a social gathering in violation of COVID-19 safety protocols.

Thompson’s lawyer, Dywan Rodgers, has raised a preliminary point before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt.

Thompson has not paid the $92,000 fine assessed by COVID-19 police and is contesting the charge.

According to Rodgers, Thompson did not organize the April 25, 2021 event that police shut down at Bahama Barrels, a property owned by Graycliff and leased to Thompson.

Rodgers claims that Thompson was not responsible for the event, as it was hosted by a third party to whom he had sub-let the property.

Prosecuting attorney Sergeant 3605 Samantha Miah will respond to Rodgers’ arguments on October 21.
