Jermaine Jackson’s Bahrain Escape Route
Explosive new evidence has been revealed that links Michael Jackson and his 2005 court case to a lavish escape plan to Bahrain. The hitmaker’s brother Jermaine had secretly arranged to fly the star out of the US, to the Middle East, if Michael was found guilty during the court case because he feared his sibling “wouldn’t survive” jail.
The Thriller legend was charged with seven counts of child abuse and two counts of administering an intoxicating agent in order to commit alleged felonies against Gavin Arvizo in 2003. The singer pleaded not guilty and so the case went to trial.
The case lasted five months, and Jermaine has now opened up about the difficulties the Jackson family faced during that time. Jermaine reveals he wanted Michael to escape America if he was sentenced to jail and had even lined up a private jet to fly him to Bahrain.
In his new book, You Are Not Alone: Michael Through A Brother’s Eyes, he explains, “I grab the hotel phone and make a call. The person on the other end of the line provides the reassurance that I needed to hear one more time. Yes, the private jet is still available. Yes, it can be at Van Nuys airport. Yes, everything has been arranged.”
“All that is required is a day’s notice, and this DC8 will have Michael heading east – to Bahrain – to start a new life away from the scam of American justice. After this charade, I'm happy to disown my citizenship and take Michael, and his family, to a place where they can’t touch him...We have the backer – a dear friend. We have the pilot. Everything is prepared. There is no way my brother – an innocent man – is going to jail for this. He wouldn’t survive, and I cannot sit back and even contemplate the possibility, let alone the reality.”
Michael Jackson was cleared of all charges at his 2005 trial.
