Murder trial involving Kartel and five others pushed back

Adijah ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer. – File

The murder trial involving dancehall entertainer Adijah Palmer, who is popularly known as Vybz Kartel, and five others linked to the death of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams has been pushed back to November.

The new trial date of November 18 to December 6 was set when the matter came before Supreme Court judge, Marjorie Cole-Smith this morning.

Attorney-at-Law, Valerie Neita Robertson, is no longer Palmer’s legal representative in the matter.

He’s now being represented by Tom Tavares-Finson.

Kartel is charged jointly with Andre St John, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams, Calvin Haye and fellow entertainer Shawn Campbell, more popularly known as ‘Shawn Storm’.

Campbell was not brought to court.

Justice Cole-Smith has ordered that Campbell be brought back to court on June 7, along with the other accused.

A bail application is also expected to be filed for Campbell at that time.
Tavares-Finson has asked for certain disclosures to be made regarding a bail application filed in chambers for Kartel earlier this year.

Kartel has been in custody since September 2011.

It is alleged that Williams was killed at Kartel’s home in Havendale, St Andrew, on August 16, 2011.

Williams and another man were reportedly taken to the entertainer’s house to account for a lost firearm.

Williams’ body has not been found.

  • Somewhere somehow, they are going to forget why he is in jail and just let him out… After all evidence have been lost…

  • LUNDUN says:

    this is becoming ridiculous now.

    we need universal establishment of human rights in all countries now! wi also need explanations as to why ppl are being subjected to long prison terms without trial.

  • Kartel’s imprisonment is within the confinements of the law…

  • CNN says:

    the time kartel is awaiting trial is gonna affect his music career in a very negative way, even if he is acquitted of the charges

  • Anonymous says:

    There is no human right in Jamaica only a fool is going sit back and think what they’re doing to not just Kartel but how many ppl are behind bar without a trial and who are really innocent don’t be blinded by hate for a next person think about if u live in the ghetto a young man can be picked up in a sweep and be there for years without a trail everybody has the right to a fair trial like it or not .

  • @CNN, I actually believe that Kartel’s career will benefit from his incarceration… There is a lot of pent up demand for him and his music. I question whether or not the Kartel who went on the inside is going to be the same Kartel to come out–if he were to be released?

  • MY NAME IS... says:

    I’m not a fan of Kartel but they should release him at this point. To hold someone captive indefinitely without trial is barbaric. They’ve had more than enough time to gather evidence and if they had a case they should have presented it. They obviously do not. The Jamaican judicial system is a pitiful joke.
