    Buju Banton

    The Jamaica Observer is reporting on the Buju Banton trial in which tapes were played of Buju discussing cocaine deals was well as diamond smuggling.

    Earlier, Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, could not stop shaking his head as he listened for a lengthy period as the prosecution played potentially damning recordings of his conversations with government informant Alexander Johnson, discussing drug deals and even diamond smuggling from Africa to Europe.

    They are also reporting that a video tape of Buju Banton tasting cocaine was shown in court as well.

    Also played for the court was the video recording of December 8, 2009 in which Banton was seen tasting cocaine from a knife given to him by his long-time friend Ian Thomas after he used it to cut open a package containing five kilogrammes of cocaine during an undercover operation by the Sarasota Police Department at a warehouse.

    Buju Banton’s long time friend Ian Thomas is expected to testify against him in the trial after pleading guilty.
