  • IT CAN’T BE RAPE: 'Leave sex pastor alone'


    A 25 year-old Manchester woman has come out in defence of disgraced Moravian pastor Rupert Clarke, contending that he didn’t rape the 15-year-old girl he was reportedly caught having sex with in December.

    “A she give the man the [sex],” the 25-year-old woman, who gave her name as Shauna, told Loop News on Tuesday.

    “Them young girls are to blame because they love old man too much,” said Shauna, who doesn’t know the teen.

    She said she doesn’t know much about Clarke but that he’s a “nice person”.

    In her bizarre take of rape, Shauna explained that the act can only occur when a woman or girl is tied up and beaten, then declared that no man could rape her.

    According to Shauna, Clarke often acknowledged her when he drove by.

    “He see me all the while and he always blow me but him [no] talk to me. I hear that he loves young girls but him [no] look my way because me too hard,” Shauna said.

    At the same time, Shauna questioned why the parent of the teen hasn’t been charged.

    She said that people — including the media — should leave Clarke alone.

  • Tommy Lee Sparta wins case — Artiste to receive cash settlement from Dominican gov’t

    Artiste to receive cash settlement from Dominican gov't

    Dancehall artiste Tommy Lee Sparta recently revealed that he would be getting a lot of money from the Dominican government after they wrongfully booted him from the country in 2014.

    In an interview with radio personality Mutabaruka, he indicated that he would be getting money, but was unwilling to give a specific sum. However, the controversial Mutabaruka, who was digging for answers, suggested that the figure was US$3 million.

    "Mi nah bait yuh up, man, but how much of the US$3 million yuh a get from the Dominican government?," Mutabaruka questioned.

    A seemingly uncomfortable Tommy Lee Sparta was still unwilling to state the figure.

    "Mi a get a lot cash, man. Everybody weh pressure mi haffi pay mi, enuh, Muta. Nuh badda feel like dem a go pressure mi just suh. Mi a go mek yuh swim inna some money man and walk pon some money," Tommy Lee Sparta said.

    The controversial deejay was denied entry by Dominican officials in February 2014 after arriving in the island in a private jet along with his then manager, Heavy D. The deejay then responded with a US$3 million lawsuit, arguing that his rights were infringed based on the Treaty of Chaguaramas, which governs CARICOM member states. The treaty says that member states should commit themselves to the goal of free movement of their nationals within the community.


    Negotiations under way

    THE STAR contacted Tommy Lee's lawyer, Bert Samuels, who refused to confirm a figure. He, however, revealed that a suggested figure was being negotiated and that the Dominican government had conceded defeat.

    "They made an offer and we are in negotiation over a final settlement. It is safe to say that they conceded to liability," he said.

    The lawyer also noted that Tommy Lee Sparta is not barred from travelling and should be allowed to exercise his rights under the Treaty of Chaguaramas.

    "The fact that they have conceded shows that under the revised Treaty of Chaguaramas, he should be able to

    travel," Samuels said.

    Tommy Lee Sparta is currently riding the wave of the positive responses he has been getting for recent releases, Darkness Rise and Not a Badness, both of which are aimed at fellow deejay Alkaline.

    The sex scandal in the Moravian Church is deepening.

    A former Moravian Minister has now produced a trail of email contradicting claims by the church leadership that it had no previous knowledge of allegations of misconduct against the 64-year-old pastor now before the court on a sex charge.

    The email between Dr Canute Thompson and the president of the Moravian Church in Jamaica Dr Paul Gardner date back to 2014.

    They have come days after Gardner rejected assertions that Rupert Clarke, the 64-year-old pastor charged with having sex with a minor was previously reported for sexual misconduct.

    But according to the trail of email between Gardner and the former Moravian Minister, the church president was in fact informed about the alleged behaviour of Clarke.



    On Monday February 3, 2014, Thompson wrote Gardner warning him against acting with "imprecision" on the "Rupert issue".

    Thompson wrote: "Act with imprecision on that and we are in trouble ..."

    Almost ten hours later, Gardener responded: "I appreciate bringing matter about Rupert to my attention."
