Mavado has allegedly jetted to Jamaica amid his son’s twisted murder case, according to a source.
The Dancehall artist, who has been rather silent about his son’s murder charges, maintains that his 16-year-old teenage son is innocent and indicated that he is intended to help his son with his legal battle at all cost, according to his lawyer.
The source alleged that Mavado recently traveled back to Jamaica, where he privately overlooked his legal matters.
“He [Mavado] already went to Jamaica and handled what he was supposed to handle,” a source claimed.
“His time in Jamaica overlooking his business is already over as he has things overseas to overlook as well with his family (wife and children). He already has to split his time to be both places and take care of everyone on top of that. His son is locked up, he can’t do anything about that until he goes in front of a judge like anyone else,” the source added.
The source was tight-lipped on whether or not the “Father God” deejay has visited the police for questioning as requested. However, the source revealed that Mavado is ready for his 16-year-old son’s bail hearing, which is set for July 31.
The teenager, who was detained on murder and conspiracy charges in connection with the death of 22-year-old Lorenzo Thomas is being held without bail at the Metcalfe Street Juvenile Remand Centre in Kingston.
A bail application was submitted by the teen’s lawyer in July. The presiding judge was not able to make a definitive ruling. The prosecutors have argued that the boy poses a flight risk and should not be granted bail.
It is alleged that Thomas’ death is a reprisal killing in connection with a shooting incident where Mavado was attacked in Cassava Piece, St Andrew just days before Thomas’s death.
Mavado’s son was charged along with 23-year-old Andre Hines. Investigators say the juvenile instructed Hines to behead the murder victim, who was shot and chopped to death before his body burnt inside his home.
