Trial of rapper Loski collapses as prosecutor falls ill | UK news


The trial of one of the UK’s top rappers has collapsed before he was due to be cross-examined in court.

The rapper Loski, 20, whose real name is Jyrelle O’Connor, has had a string of successful singles and attracts millions of views on YouTube and other social media platforms.

He has been charged with various offences related to possession of a firearm, one with intent to endanger life, and possession of ammunition. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

A jury at Croydon Crown Court had already heard the prosecution’s case and the defence case had opened with O’Connor responding to questions from defence counsel Simon Pentol QC.

Cross-examination of the rapper by prosecutor Ken Millett was due to start but Millett was unwell and so judge Elizabeth Smaller discharged the jury on Wednesday and said a retrial would have to take place. The court will sit on Friday to set a retrial date.
