Stop order has been place on Elephant man-Elephant Man cited for tax evasion


Another dancehall artiste has landed in trouble with the Tax Administration Department.


Elephant Man, whose given name is O'Neil Bryan, was on Wednesday night prevented from leaving the island by immigration officials due to tax related matters.


It is understood that the artiste owes the government millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.
We understands that the artiste and his entourage arrived at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, St. James enroute to England when he was told that a stop order had been placed on him.


Members of his entourage were however allowed to leave the island.
When our News Centre contacted the Tax Administration Department, Director of Communications Meris Haughton declined to comment on the specific case involving Elephant Man.

However Miss Haughton noted that stop orders at the island's ports are being used as a strategy by the tax authorities as they intensify their drive to force delinquent tax payers to settle their arrears. source rjrnews
