While Jah Cure may be longing for his six-year sentence for attempted manslaughter to be overturned through a possible appeal by his lawyer, the Public Prosecution Service in the Netherlands seem to still have him in their cross hairs

On Tuesday, April 5, 2022, the prosecution service told Loop News that it submitted an appeal to the Court of Appeal, seeking to put the attempted murder charge back on the table.

For Jah Cure fans who may not have been following the case, Jah Cure recently went to court in the Netherlands to face two charges — one for attempted manslaughter and the other for attempted murder — in connection with a stabbing incident in Amsterdam involving a promoter in October 2021.

While he was found guilty of attempted manslaughter, the court found him not guilty of attempted murder.

The prosecution is now challenging the ruling for the acquittal for attempted murder and wants the attempted murder charge to be reheard by three senior judges in the Court of Appeal.

Loop News reached out to the person confirmed by the prosecution service to be Jah Cure’s lawyer in the Netherlands to confirm whether he was aware of the appeal being lodged by the prosecution on Tuesday against the attempted murder acquittal, however, no comment was received.

It is also unclear whether Jah Cure’s lawyer has submitted his own appeal within the 14-day deadline to challenge the six-year sentence for attempted manslaughter.
