Kartel’s bail offer revoked for one murder case
Friday, March 23, 2012

THE $3-million bail offer to entertainer Vybz Kartel last December was Wednesday revoked when his second murder case was transferred to the Home Circuit Court.
As a result of the revocation, the artiste will have to return to court today when a new bail application will be made on his behalf.
Kartel’s two co-accused men — Nigel Thompson and Lenburgh McDonald — whose cases were also transferred from the Gun Court Division of the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court are to return to court on April 13 when bail applications will be made on their behalf.
The three are charged with murder for the death of Barrignton ‘Bossie’ Bryan who was shot as he stood among a group of people in Gregory Park, St Catherine in July last year.
Prior to Kartel’s bail being revoked — which is the standard when a case is transferred to the High Court — there was a verbal spat between the prosecuting attorney and Kartel’s lawyer Chris Tavares-Finson over whether or not the embattled artiste was in fact granted bail.
Crown Counsel Michele Salmon told the court she was not aware of the bail offer as she did not have possession of the case file. Following a 15-minute adjournment Salmon confirmed the bail offer. She, however, argued that even though bail was offered in chambers at the Supreme Court, a fresh application will have to be made as the matter was still before the RM court when the bail was granted.
Following arguments from Tavares-Finson and attorney Michael Deans, Justice Christine McDonald set the bail application for today. But even if the deejay, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is offered bail he will have to remain behind bars as he is before the courts on several other charges including the murder for the August killing of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams. Kartel and five other accused men, including entertainer Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell are to return to court on April 13 in that matter.
Also on Wednesday, the ganja trial against Kartel, who appeared in court sporting low cut hair, as opposed to his signature hair extensions, was put off for April 13 due to the no-show of witnesses. The controversial artiste has been behind bars since September.

Monday, February 11, 2013 | 2:57 PM

KINGSTON, Jamaica – The murder trial of deejay Vybz Kartel for the shooting death of Barrington ‘Bossie’ Bryan is to start on May 27.
Kartel’s trial was scheduled to begin today but prosecutors told the court that the main witness in the case was being uncooperative.

The case will continue via the Evidence Act resulting in a paper trial.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is to be tried along with Nigel Thompson and Lenburgh McDonald for the fatal shooting of Bryan.
Bryan was gunned down in his community of Gregory Park, St Catherine by men travelling in a motor car.
The dancehall DJ was on $3 million bail in relation to that charge but has been held in custody as he is facing another charge of murder for the death of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
Williams was reportedly killed in Havendale, St Andrew over a missing gun.
Others to be tried with Kartel for the August 2011 beating death Williams are Calvin Hay, entertainer Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Andre St John, Kahira Jones and Shane Williams.

    “main witness uncooperative” huh smh

  • Anonymous says:

    Well seem as if the murder cases are wittling away, because witnesses are stonewalling. Wow! So looks as if all they probably will have in the end is the ganja charge. Go figure that one out. A man is not guilty until he is found guilty even if im guilty and no concrete evidence turn up. The law can be a mockery when certain people is on the wrong side of it.

  • Anonymous says:

    What might happen now , is Kartel might sue the Government fi violating im civil rights. How could they have di audicity fi hold him fi a stick a weed so long, causing him to lose so much. Not even tomention defiling the name of the Almoighty Wourl Bass! No even tawk bout di egregious act of the desparagation. How dare dem call the ( Real Bass) a murderer?
