By Benjamin Flowers: Jamaican recording artist, Siccature Alcock, known by his stage name Jah Cure, will not be getting an early release from his six-year prison sentence in the Netherlands, Loop News reports.

Jah Cure appeared in court for a pro forma hearing on Tuesday, where the trial judge decided that he should remain in jail. On March 22, he was acquitted of an attempted murder charge in relation to stabbing a promoter over unpaid money, and was instead found guilty of attempted manslaughter.

The prosecution has appealed the acquittal and under Dutch law a pro forma hearing must be held every 90 days to determine if he should be released while the appeal is ongoing.

Tuscha Essed, press officer at the Public Prosecution Office said that no date has been set to hear the appeal for the acquittal of the attempted murder charges, and that pro forma hearings will be occurring until the final decision is made by the court.

“Once we have the entire dossier files ready (which goes through several administrative steps after the first trial), the hearing will be planned. The court of appeal looks over the case again and their ruling will overrule the previous ruling by the district court,” Essed explained.

Jah Cure is known for songs such as “That Girl’, ‘Rasta’, and ‘Life We Live’, and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2015.
