Police urge Barbados government to prohibit Sizzla from entering country for concert
Monday, March 21, 2005


BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (AP) - Police said Barbados should not allow reggae artiste Sizzla, who was arrested in Jamaica last week in connection with a massive weapons seizure, to perform at a concert here next week.

Sizzla, whose real name is Miguel Collins, was scheduled to perform at the National Stadium on March 27. Tickets have been on sale for more than a month, but the status of the concert was unclear after Sizzla's arrest Thursday. The dancehall singer remains in custody but has not been charged.

Barbados police commissioner Darwin Dottin said he would urge the government not to give Sizzla a work permit allowing him to enter Barbados.

"I will recommend to the Minister of Home Affairs not to give him a work permit," Dottin said Saturday. "Perhaps his presence here would be inimical to good order."

Sizzla was among 33 people arrested after police and military raided the crime-ridden community of August Town in Jamaica's capital of Kingston. Authorities seized six AK-47 rifles, three sniper rifles, a submachine gun and 58 rounds of ammunition.

Police say Sizzla is suspected of supplying weapons to gangs in the community.

Attempts to reach Sizzla's manager Phillip Durrell for comment have been unsuccessful.

The Rastafarian singer, whose songs include Thank U Mamma and Black Woman and Child, was sentenced to 15 days in prison last month for swearing while performing at the East Fest concert in St Thomas parish in eastern Jamaica. He was allowed to remain free pending an appeal, however.

Sizzla, whose songs have been hits in Jamaica and Barbados, also made headlines last year after gay advocacy groups in Britain said his lyrics promoted homophobia, prompting the cancellation of several shows in London.

"Sizzla was questioned in the presence of his lawyer," Corporal Jean McDonald of the Constabulary Communications Network said. "He was then released."

The reggae artiste is one of 33 persons who were arrested after police unearthed six AK47 rifles, three sniper rifles, one M16 assault rifle, two shot guns, one Intratech 9 submachine gun, 23 AK47 rounds of ammunition, 31 rounds of 9mm rounds, four M16 rounds, two bullet-proof vests, 11 assorted magazines, and a silencer buried in a bag in a chicken coop in Judgment Yard.

The police have so far charged three men - Nigel Campbell, Michael Anderson and Aaron Chambers, all of August Town, with illegal possession of ammunition in connection with the August Town find.
