Calvin Haye, who was charged jointly with Vybz Kartel for murder, is now seeking damages for false imprisonment and malicious prosecution.

Haye, also known as ‘Moonie’, was freed by the court on November 14 last year after the prosecution said it had no evidence against him.

He is now contending that he was charged by the police without just reason.

And he says he has suffered irreparable damage.

Kartel and three others who were charged with Haye have since been found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
