vybz kartel taken in custody

Embattled dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel is still behind bars following his court hearing on Friday (October 14).

As previously reported, the deejay’s attorneys had planned to file bail application yesterday, since same was denied earlier this week. However, the application did not get off the ground as the court wanted to verify claims that complaints were made to Public Defender Earl Witter by witnesses who claimed they were being intimidated by persons loyal to the Portmore Empire boss.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, was ordered to return to court on October 26.

Vybz Kartel is facing trial for murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm will continue.
