Vakero, Martha. File
Zoom Picture

Santo Domingo.- Aaron Garib, warden of San Pedro’s (east) Correctional Center, where the popular singer Manuel Varet Marte (Vakero) was transferred Tuesday morning, affirmed that the detainee’s rights are guaranteed and respected until a court rules on his refusal to cut his dreadlock hair, as jail rules stipulate.

Varet’s lawyer Manuel Moquete provided the information on the accused, who’s been charged with violence against his wife, Latin American Idol winner Martha Heredia.

The challenge filed by the performer, who refused to cut his hair arguing religious reasons as a Rastafarian, will be heard by the San Pedro Criminal Court tomorrow.

i do not approve of his wearing the locks. a true rastafarian is a man of profound religious beliefs. if he has adopted them, then he should be allowed to keep his locks, but he should not be wearing them as a fashion statement, then claiming religion as a reason not to have them shorn

As far as the women is concern, she was provably being disrespectful and deserved the beating.

Or she was provably being unfaithful, once again deserved the beating.

Dready,
Does Rastafarianism allow beating-up one's wife? If not, then shave his swollen head!

Roy, maybe instead of shaving his head, it should be "off with his head".

So what are you trying to prove, rokete, that you're a typical Latino? Cowards and garbage and sexual deviants advocate beating women.

A disrespectful women needs to be put in her place. PERIOD (.)

I am simply not a wussy, like women advocates and defenders.

The transition from wussy to homosexual is not to far.

WOMEN NEED TO BE PUT IN HER PLACE

IN THE KITCHEN AND IN THE BEDROOM

you claim to be posting from the USA. your medieval ideas do not work in that country. you better wait until you come back to the DR before you go beating women. they throw primitives in jail for beating women in the USA.

That a Laugh!!!! LOL

What you say is precisely the reason why the US has an epidemic of homosexuals.

Because there are excessive laws, to protect women from pervs, that are now turning against men in general.

Therefore, these wussies are afraid of women.

The ones that are gaining from this are the dykes and the alpha males.

WOMEN ARE TO BE PUT IN THEIR PLACE. PERIOD (.)

If you like beating your wife(s), become a Muslim. It is not only allowed in Sharia Law, it is demanded in certain circumstances (like disobedience or refusing sex on demand).
