MAVADO SEH HE FLYIN…………………..

5971255855_72a8951651_z-Optimized

The Jamaican entertainer at the centre of a bribery case involving a former security official at the United States (US) Embassy in Kingston will automatically lose his American visa and could face criminal prosecution, a US-based attorney has revealed.
Dahlia Walker-Huntington, who practises immigration law in the state of Florida, told The Gleaner yesterday that the revelations made in a Virginia court by David Rainsberger, the former assistant regional security officer at the US Embassy, could also bar the entertainer from obtaining citizenship in the US. “This person who is alleged to have bribed a US official did so to obtain a benefit and that is where the immigration fraud comes in,” Walker-Huntington explained. “Any visa that you obtain by fraud is not valid and any benefits you get from that fraud will be taken away,” she emphasised. Yesterday, the US Embassy declined to comment on the visa status of the entertainer, whose identity has still not been released. The embassy referred queries to the US Attorney’s Office in Virginia. Rainsberger pleaded guilty on Wednesday to accepting two luxury watches valued at US$2,500 in exchange for helping the entertainer gain a visa to enter the US. He said he also received backstage passes to concerts, free admission and a birthday party hosted by the entertainer. Walker-Huntington said because Rainsberger was employed in a very senior and sensitive position that will automatically trigger a wide-ranging probe by US authorities. “He was put in a position of extreme trust … . To have violated that trust, you can rest assured that further investigation will take place to make sure it is a deterrent to US employees all over the world,” she reasoned. In a statement released yesterday, Yolonda Kerney, head of the Public Affairs Section at the embassy, seemed to echo Walker-Huntington’s assertion. “The government of the United States of America takes its own anti-corruption mandates seriously. No one is above the law, even embassy employees,” Kerney said. Walker-Huntington said if the entertainer is already in the US and marries an American citizen to obtain permanent residency, the fraud could become a major obstacle. “To change your status, you must be in the US pursuant to lawful entry to be able to change your status, through marriage, from a visitor to an immigrant,” she explained.

  • Foxy Lady says:

    Eyecandy, is it really speculations or knowledge of immigration protocol?
    Any deviation from protocol would only indicate a deal on his part, a deal that would most certainly involve giving up someone.

    Based on the above, I believe he would have been fine had he gotten married in Jamaica and not have been on American soil.

  • Getting married nah save him! He’s too damn arrogant and hype! Him hardly reach weh him a go and start burn bridges and throw stones behind him. For someone whose music is very elementary he should be more humble! It’s not like he’s talented, when I hear his songs it’s like reading a basic school book. Look at kartel he can express himself in such a way that it takes u a while to understand what he’s saying, not dis ugly man movado everything him do him do it fraudulently. Him feel him can buy out ppl all of him life? Galangal back a ja man go learn fe humble herself. You’re a disgrace!

  • Foxy Lady says:

    There is no way he could have not known. The man obviously was missing from his position, from Jamaica and from his circle. Questions must have been raised. He would have been acquainted with the Jamaican fiancee who would have relayed the information to him. During the investigative process, he would have been contacted as it normal procedure for an investigation especially in preparation of a case to proceed before the court of law.
    Movado was fully aware of this and he is also aware of his fate in this situation. He doesn’t seem at all worried which again could indicate that he is quite fine and has done is required duty in sealing the case against Riceburger. As the story unravels, Movado seems to have given up someone to still be in the United States as Immigration protocol strictly restricts his staying here.
    I have nothing vested in his outcome and I wish the best for everyone but it is what it appears to be and until he is sent home, then there is nothing to indicate otherwise, regardless if you’re a Movado lover or not.

  • Foxy Lady says:

    his*

  • FireBrand says:

    I don’t like Mavado as an artiste and I don’t check for him as a person either because he’s not loyal or humble. Anyhow, I think he is getting the raw end of this deal. Something doesn’t make sense…If the immigration officer was going to take a bribe, why take it for two watches worth only US2500. I’m sure he gets paid at least that per week!!! If he was going to take a bribe why not take 25,000? I think Mavado just gave him the watches as a gratuity for being helpful to him, not looking at it as a bribe. But knowing uncle SAM they are going twist and turn it so that it looks the part. This is a witch hunt and they are just going to try and make an example of Mavado. Just another case of uncle SAM flexing their muscle because they can. They do it ALL the time in federal drug cases and this is just another example. I don’t think anybody be quick to judge just because of how we feel about Mavado because that really isn’t the point. I think the only person who knew they were doing something wrong here was the immigration officer. He was not supposed to take any gratuities, no matter how small, and he did. He should be the one punished if anybody.

  • Anonymous says:

    Whether it was gratuity or bribery or whatever some wants to minimize it to, he was fully aware that the process he use to obtain his visa was not legit so that alone in immigration eyes is consider fraudulent. The marriage on the other hand was only valid if visa that he had obtain was valid. Simply put visa no good marriage no good either whether the female has citizenship or not so either way he takes it he is still screwed.

  • Belly Bang says:

    So him and Julian was being guided by the hand of God when dem was keeping up the f000ery???

    calling it like it is aint hating, its reality and so far JMG has been 90% on the ball, even before it was confirmed that Movado/Julian influenced the policeman’s visa revocation.

    calling God’s name doesnt make him a saint nor does it make him a sinner. using God’s name aint gonna shame anyone into backing f000ery or stop analysing the situation. & when God do take a hammer and beat some sense into Movado skull, then we will surely know cause he will be living his life in the Lord’s footsteps and professing all that he has done for him – through words, actions and by the company he keeps.

  • Belly Bang says:

    dat mi say Foxy, cause anything we try reason out, draw pon wi little knowledge, we experiences and wat is out there in the media, yuh hear seh wi ah haters.

    The word ‘HATERS’ and God’s name are always used as tools to justify f000ery and to intimidate people through psychological warfare. Cause it is perceived that to use those terms will automatically make any situation right.

  • @ Bless, listen to wat you are suggesting about vado just being “friends” with this individual Rainsberger. Do you actual buy into the fact that they are just friends and that rainberger did not intentionally set out help vado? Rainsberger just happen to hold such important position. A position that was used to reinstate vado visa, how convinient that this man is just a friend? Vado is aware that no visa means a significant loss in his earnings! To ensure his visa was reinstated he knowingly gave this Rainsberger gifts and other things mentioned in the press release of this investigation. Ask yourself this who gave this Rainsberger authority to access information for his own personal use and determination? Better yet who gave him the authority to reinstated the entertainer visa? And how convinient it was that they are friends? Conflict of interest comes to mind? Was it not Rainsberger who admitted to committing these acts which subsequently resulted in him being fired and charged as a result of him directly accepting bribes from mavado to help him get back his visa? Look the law is the law and no matter how big or small a bribe is, it is considered a bribe! Compensation comes in many different forms. The fact that Rainsberger was even friends with Mavado could be seen as a conflict of interest , which would question this Rainsberger morals and ethics. Take this as an example, if you worked as a Doctor at a certain hospital and your best friend was admitted for reasons unknown to you, you are NOT the attending physician nor were you given the authorization to inquire or consult by anyone, yet you use your position to access information about your friend do you know the type of trouble you would be facing? Well this isn’t far from what mavado and his so called just friends as you suggested. Mavado Visa will be revoked! It was obtain unlawfully!

  • Under the bribery law, at 18 U.S.C. § 201(b), an executive branch employee may not demand, seek, receive, accept or agree to accept anything of value “in return for being influenced in the performance of any official act.” The bribery law is often compared to two other criminal provisions:

    Under 18 U.S.C. § 201(c), the illegal gratuities statute, an employee may not demand, seek, receive, accept, or agree to accept anything of value “for or because of any official act” performed or to be performed by the employee.
    Under 18 U.S.C. § 209, the supplementation of salary statute, an employee may not receive any salary or supplementation of salary, from any person other than the Government, as compensation for services as a Government employee.
    The U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE) is not authorized to interpret the bribery law, but OGE has cited legal opinions or provided advisory or regulatory guidance concerning the relationship between the bribery law, the illegal gratuities statute, the supplementation of salary statute, and the administrative gifts provisions in the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch (5 C.F.R. part 2635). Notably:

    In a legal advisory, OGE alerted ethics officials to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in United States v. Sun-Diamond Growers of California, 526 U.S. 398 (1999). The Supreme Court explained in its opinion that the feature distinguishing 18 U.S.C. § 201(b) and 18 U.S.C. § 201(c) is the intent element.
    In a legal advisory, OGE explained that a gift accepted in accordance with the Standards of Conduct regulation is not prohibited by 18 U.S.C. § 209.
    5 C.F.R. § 2635.202(b) makes it clear that a gift accepted from an outside source in accordance with the Standards of Conduct regulation is not prohibited by 18 U.S.C. § 201(c), unless it is accepted in return for being influenced in the performance of an official act.

    Unno want read ah which station him guh pon guh run up him mout, seet yah, from an article in 2011:-

    Singjay Mavado is all smiles this weekend as he returns to the United States after more than a year’s absence. The artiste recently had his United States visa returned.
    In April of last year Mavado, whose correct name is David Brooks, was among four artistes who’s US visas were cancelled.

    According to a previous report in The STAR, the visas of deejays Bounty Killer, Mavado, Beenie Man, Aidonia and selector Ricky Trooper were cancelled by the Fraud Prevention Arm of the United States Embassy in Kingston.

    At the time, a statement released was quoted as saying: ‘The Embassy of the United States in Kingston, Jamaica, is in the process of revoking the visas of the following citizens of Jamaica. The people mentioned here currently hold a US visa that we have not yet been able to physically cancel. Do not allow these passengers to board any flights bound for the United States in reliance on this visa.”

    Mavado is the first artiste since the cancellation to have his US visa reinstated.

    The singjay arrived in New York on Saturday morning. According to his manager Julian Jones-Griffith, Mavado did his first exclusive interview on New York’s Hot 97 FM with Bobby Konders and Jabba yesterday. Jones-Griffith told The STAR, “Since losing his visa in April 2010, Mavado hasn’t commented on the situation, in media or on record. Now that the situation has been resolved we will retain that dignity and not comment on the issue, suffice to say, Mavado is looking forward to getting back to work in the United States where his army of fans will get to see him perform after a prolonged absence.”

    He continued, “We have a lot of projects in the pipeline that we will announce in due course. We would like to thank all of the people who reached out to us in troubled times, we will certainly not forget you, and for those who didn’t, we won’t forget you either.”

  • Met says:

    lundun real more dan a run joke…she a tek him fi a joke………………………………………………………………………………..

  • Belly Bang says:

    2011:-

    Mavado is this afternoon expressing his heartfelt thanks to the United States governing for allowing him to travel to US once again.

    Vado who is currently in the Big Apple has commended the United States authorities for what he says is the US’s commitment to the truth and a fair investigation of all the facts. Even though the artiste didn’t say what facts.

    Mavado is the first of the batch of dancehall entertainers who got their visa’s revoked by the US embassy. Presently Mavado’s stable-mate Bounty Killa, Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel, Aidonia and Ricky Trooper are currently without a US visa.

    Not being able to travel to the US has put a financial dent on a few entertainers’ earning power.

  • Met I doubt that you will be able to access that court document, because its a federal court case and it is still ongoing. I’m sure they are working diligently to bring mavado’s part into it. There’s no way he will walk away scotch free from this having committed bribery which resulted in him getting a US visa. it’s the weekend now, keep a look out for the coming business days ahead when the us prosecutors are back working on this case. Pay attention to the sentencing date of Rainsberger, why so far in April? This leafs me to think there’s a lot more developing in this case.

    http://weonlinemall.com/edigest/e/enews/217-rumor-control-its-not-official-mavado-did-not-get-married

    Wednesday, 01 February 2012

    Rumors have been circulating for the past week in regards to to Alliance member and dancehall superstar Mavado marrying his longtime companion, Monique McKenzie.

    The rumor was initially started by a Jamaican gossip site that reported that Mavado (born David Constantine Brooks) and McKenzie were married, even going as far to produce an electronic copy of the marriage license.

    However, Mavado’s manager Julian Griffiths has since made it publicly known that this is all a rumor.

    But are the two even engaged?

    Mavado has gaining a lot more international success and airplay ever since signing with DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music group. Coincidentally, one of his recent hits was titled, “Settle Down.”

    It’s not far-fetched to believe that he might marry his baby mama (as they put it), whom he always gushes about. Last NYC fashion week while making appearances, Mavado was busy shopping for her in the Louis Vuitton, Fendi and other designer stores.

    But with his follow up hit song with Raine Seville titled Cheating Games, one has to really wonder if he is even ready to hang up his player gloves!

    We’ll have to wait this one out.

    2012

    It has been reported on several news outlets that Dancehall superstar Mavado recently got married to his longtime companion, Monique McKenzie. However Mavado’s manager Julian Griffiths would like to inform the public that it’s just a rumor that was started by a certain Gossip website.

    According to one of the reports: A supposed copy of their marriage license application can be found on the internet. Though the venue for said venue remains unknown and pictures being leaked from the marriage are unfounded, the website claims that sources close to the couple insisted that they were going to marry. Last year, reports surfaced that Mavado, whose real name is David Constantine Brooks, intended to marry McKenzie at some point.

    I think he knew b4 this got released. Somebody that’s not happy with the man reaching where he reached snitched on him. He probably had to either rat on di embassy man or face charges and deportation himself. America always protect there rats, thats why di man name inna initials. There suspects names and pics always get leggo unless they r juvi’s. If he was in any trouble they would have happly snatched his ass up already. Di yute probably knew he had to get married to solidify his residency. Mi not taking up for movado but i feel to much back stabing and hatered run down a yawd. Vado fxxx the don, sarg, and leader ting yes, become your own leader them just vex sey you follow no more n still ah mek it.
