Embattled Dancehall star Vybz Kartel is probably in his jail cell right now weeping. The “Cake Soap” deejay will have to wait even longer to stand trial for his alleged conspiracy charges.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, and his protégé Gaza Slim, real name Vanessa Saddler, appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court in Kingston yesterday to answer to the charges.
The trial was postponed until August 29 due to the absence of the accused lawyers. According to reports, the entertainer’s legal team could not attend the scheduled court hearing because they were engaged in another trial in the Supreme Court.
Both artistes, along with studio engineer, Andre Henry, were charged attempting to pervert the course of justice and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
According to police reports, Slim, real name Vanessa Sadler, made a false report in October of last year claiming she was robbed by Clive “Lizard” Williams, the man Vybz Kartel allegedly murdered.
Vybz Kartel returns to court on June 8 in relation to Clive “Lizard” Williams murder charge.
