Tommy Lee’s legal team preparing settlement papers…Still in the works

22 Jun

Dancehall entertainer Tommy Lee Sparta’s legal team is currently preparing documents to submit to the Dominican Government for an “out of court settlement” following the artiste’s deportation from that country in February.

According to Bert Samuels, the attorney representing Tommy Lee Sparta, the sourcing of documentation is what is causing the delay.

“We are the ones that the Dominican Government is waiting on, as we are going all over the place getting the relevant documents together,” Samuels told the Jamaica Observer.

According to the attorney, among the documents needed is a medical report.

“The condition in which he was being held was not suitable and he had to sleep on the cold floor. Bear in mind he was suffering from an injury (sustained in a motor vehicle accident) at the time,” said Samuels.

Tommy Lee Sparta (given name is Leroy Russell), along with three members of his team — Tiasha Oralie Russell, Junior Fraser and Mario Christopher Wallace — were deported from that Caribbean territory a day after their arrival.

The entertainer and his team had journeyed to Dominica to perform at a concert in Portsmouth. They were, however, denied entry and placed in custody before being deported.

Samuels said that he and his team are still examining the loss of income from contractual arrangements due to the artiste’s deportation. As a result, he was unable to state the amount of the settlement being sought.

In a letter dated March 3, 2015, Dr Kathy-Ann Brown, Jamaica’s deputy solicitor general and Director — International Affairs Division, indicated her Dominican counterpart expressed a desire for a friendly resolution to the matter.

Tommy Lee Sparta is known for tracks including Spartan Soldier, Psycho and Nuh Fear Dem.
