Recently, Director of Public Prosecutions Cindy Clarke confirmed that two people will be formally charged in Magistrate’s Court for breaching COVID-19 regulations last summer during a raft-up partly sponsored by the fashion brand Revolve.
The defendants are Matthew Strong and Selange Gitschner, and they will be charged with “ aiding, counseling and procuring Orville Burrell,” who is better known as top-selling reggae artist Shaggy, who flew to the island in June of last year to perform at a summer raft-up party; to contravene one of the COVID-19 guidelines, as Mr. Burrell did not quarantine until he received his first negative test result after arrival on the island.
Mr. Strong and Mr. Gitschner are also charged with “failing to take all reasonable steps to maintain appropriate physical distancing and not wearing a mask when one is required,” as per the COVID-10 regulations.
Both defendants are expected to be charged in court on Friday March 11.
