Martin's seizure was confirmed by Martin’s manager, Lydon 'Kingy' Letman to the Jamaica STAR on Tuesday, but denies that the vehicle was illegally imported.
“We didn't import the vehicle.” he told the newspaper. “We bought the vehicle from a registered car lot. We went to the lot, saw the vehicle, liked it and purchased it. We have all the legal documents supporting this. Chris had the car for almost three years. This really came as a surprise to us."
Neither Martin nor Jah Cure have yet to comment on the matter. MOCA did not comment on the seizures, but insisted they will issue a statement on the matter in due course.
A son of a prominent politician is also reported to have had his vehicle seized during the investigation.
