Alkaline retains Peter Champagnie5 min read
Deejay Alkaline has been in the news a lot lately in regard to the issue of the Police wanting him to come in for questioning in relation to the murder of Rohan Morris.
Alkaline has since retained the services of prominent attorney Peter Champagnie who said that the deejay only learnt of the development through the media.
He is expected to report to Area Four Headquarters at Harman Barracks in Vineyard Town, Kingston, today at 9:00 am.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force’s information arm, the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU), said an agreement was made between the police and Alkaline’s attorney, Peter Champagnie, 3:00 pm yesterday.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Devon Watkis, head of Area 4, said he was satisfied with the new arrangement.
ACP Watkis, whose Area Four jurisdiction covers the Corporate Area said, “The police investigating have found it necessary to have conversation with the gentleman [Alkaline], hence the appeal.”
“During the course of the day, an eminent lawyer made contact with investigators and negotiated the process to make the entertainer available for investigators. We’re satisfied with the agreement,” ACP Watkis continued.
Morris, 28, was murdered at his home in Maverley, St Andrew, on January 13.
