SHYNE is Back in Belize

Posted by inticeonline on 11/01/2009


Shyne is back in Belize with his family. He landed the other day but still hasn’t made any statements with the media because his lawyer wasn’t present at the time. According to his uncle, Shyne is renting the whole floor of a hotel so, he can have some Peace & Quiet…

Shyne emerged from the plane in a Harvard Law School sweat shirt and a pair of headphones around his neck. The rapper sported a full head of parted hair. He was hugged first by his godmother then his manager and others including one of his attorneys, Oscar Michelin, followed by Pulu Lightburn. Emerging to meet him at the stairs of the VIP room was his mother Imeon Myvette. She escorted him inside for the processing of his freedom on Belizean soil. After greeting with his father in the privacy of V.I.P. area, Shyne’s uncle, Michael Finnegan, gave the media an update on his status.

Michael Finnegan, Shyne’s Uncle: Shyne is home. He wants to say how happy he is to be home and to be a free man. He would love to have a conversation with the media but because he was legally advised by Professor Ogletree, he must not speak to the media because he doesn’t want to prejudice his situation any at all with the US government or with the Belize government. So he asked me to ask you that he don’t want to disrespect you the media, but please to understand what is going on. You could see the tears in his eyes as they hugged and the romantic situation in there especially with his Grandmother and with his father, with his younger brother Anwar, they hugged and neva want let go one another.

Jose Sanchez [Channel 5]: Will there be a family dinner tonight with everybody, father included?

Michael Finnegan: No, there will be no—we are not a formal kind of people so we will play it by ear. His residence at my place is two weeks away from completion so he has rented a complete floor at Radisson Fort George Hotel. So every room on a floor was taken by him whether ih wah use it or noh use it. He said that after going through the eight and a half years he has gone through, he needs some privacy, he needs noh to deh round nobody, he needs just to sit down in isolation and contemplate his life. And I think that we need to respect that. If you notice, he has lost an extreme amount of weight.

Jose Sanchez [Channel 5]: As uncle what were your first words to him?

Michael Finnegan: come yah old bwai. That’s all I said to him cause when he was small and di raise ah I used to call ah old fart. So come yah old fart, come yah old bwai. Dat dah di way we greet one another when we talk on di phone. But he’s in good spirit, he is in good health but he is a bit frail.

Shyne, in the company of his brother Anwar, left the airport in a red Ford Expedition towards the Youth Hostel on the Western Highway where he gave a pep talk to youths. Like the prodigal son, the former bad boy, returned home to open arms….

Shyne is Getting Deported

Posted by inticeonline on 10/23/2009


It’s as though some people never catch a good break and rapper Shyne is one who can testify to that.  After serving close to a decade for the state, it is now official that he will be deported back to Belize.

As a close friend of the rapper, Angie Martinez was able to brief fans on the situation and provide a rundown as to what the current situation is with Po, according to Miss Info.

Shyne’s team is fighting to stay in the US where his mother and his grandmother live and where they raised him….but it seems like he’s going to have to continue the fight from Belize. Shyne will be released from Immigration custody but will then be deported to Belize soon. He has Harvard Professor Charles Ogletree advocating on his behalf in concert with his legal team. They’re still urging fans to reach out to Governor Patterson’s office to petition for Shyne’s pardon but deportation is eminent.

One would be under the influence that the reborn Moses Michael Leviy, that’s Shyne folks, would be under plenty of added pressure and stress now that his departure has basically been guaranteed.  Martinez assures those, however, that the New York native is finding a means to deal with his emerging predicament.

“Shyne is one of the strongest people I know and he’s handling this situation just as I’d expect him to. It must be frustrating for all of his friends and family; he served his time, and keeps getting all these different dates and conflicting information. But he’s a soldier, he’s dealing with it.”

As previously reported, the rapper was originally scheduled for release on October 6, but was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement where it would be determined if he would be deported back to Belize, where he was originally born.

Fellow rapper Raekwon spoke on the circumstances of Shyne’s deportation recently on his IceWater Vlog stating that Po only did what he felt was best to ensure that he provided for his own.  By remaining in the States, it might have been the smartest decision to ensure that food remained on the table so it is wrong to deter a man from supporting his family.

It looks like another win for the country, but another loss for the actual citizens that keep the country moving.  Who would have thought that a person that was raised here since he was a child would be considered an alien to the States?  Chances are that if the shooting never happened, it wouldn’t have mattered.

Maybe the Land of the Free wasn’t meant to include Shyne Po.

Shyne’s Father, the Prime Minister of Belize, Asks Governor of New York for Pardon

Posted by inticeonline on 10/14/2009

barrowsShyne’s dad is an accomplished attorney, as well as, the Prime Minister of Belize. His dad has revealed some startling news:

Rapper Jamal “Shyne” Barrow’s father, Dean Barrow, Prime Minister of Belize, told Belize media that he has written to New York Governor David Paterson asking him…
to pardon his son so that he is not deported back to Belize – the country of his birth. Shyne was released from prison on Tuesday after serving eight years for his role in a New York nightclub shooting incident in 1999 involving rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jennifer Lopez. Shyne is currently in the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities (I.C.E.) in New York.

Questioned by reporters as he was leaving the house of parliament in Belmopan Friday, Prime Minister Barrow said the Barrow family sought help from Charles Ogletree – Harvard law professor and a member of President Barack Obama’s inner circle to assist Shyne in resisting deportation to Belize. Mr. Barrow told reporters he wrote the letter to the New York governor at the request of Professor Ogletree.

The Belize Prime Minister told reporters that “I have not had a response. I have spoken to people close to the governor and I have been assured that the letter has been received and that it is under active consideration. But I can’t say that I am able to call in any favors such that would guarantee that he is able to remain in the states.”

A spokesman for the Barrow family said today that Shyne’s lawyer Oscar Michelen has advised them that I.C.E. will make a determination next week on whether Shyne will be deported to Belize.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Barrow revealed for the first time that shortly after his son Jamal “Shyne” Barrow was sentenced to prison in the U.S.A., he had written a letter to a former Governor of New York.  In that letter Mr. Barrow said he asked that his son be repatriated to Belize to serve his sentence as that was what Shyne wanted at the time. “That never went anywhere. Just as well as it is now clear that he wants to remain in the U.S.A. to continue his career,” stated the Prime Minister.
