Social media influencer and entertainer A'mari paid a fine of $20,000 when she appeared before the St James Parish Court on Wednesday after she was charged with breaching the Disaster Risk Management Act.

A'mari, whose given name is Veneice Fung-Chung, was charged after she was found in breach of a self-quarantine order when she was seen at several places after her arrival in the island.

"I got back my passport and my green card. I can move around Jamaica and go home whenever I want to," A'mari "DJ Mona Lisa" told Loop News

A'mari was also fined $200 for using indecent language during a foul-mouthed interaction with cops last Thursday. 

She is currently at a hotel in Montego Bay.

Under the Disaster Risk Management Act, persons who refuse to follow the established orders and protocols in place to limit the spread of the coronavirus could be fined up to $1 million or six months' imprisonment.
