Vybz Kartel Trial Stalled AGAIN, Witness Not Coorperating
Embattled dancehall star Vybz Kartel remains behind bars after his trial once again failed to get off the ground.
Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, along with his co-accused reported to the Home Circuit Court yesterday to begin trial in relation to the murder of Barrington “Bossie” Burton.
The judge postponed the trial because witnesses in the case are not cooperating with the prosecution.
Prosecutors told the court that they will explore other options such as having statements made by the witnesses entered into evidence against the deejay.
Vybz Kartel was arrested in September of 2011 and slapped with two murder charges in relation to the death of Clive “Lizard” Williams and Barrington “Bossie” Burton.

Police also charged Nigel Thompson and Lenburgh McDonald in the case relating to Burton’s murder. While the dancehall star’s protege Shawn “Storm” Campbell, and stylist Calvin “Moonie” Haye” were also charged in Williams’ murder.
Vybz Kartel returns to court on May 27.
In the meantime Vybz Kartel legal team, headed by Christen Tavares-Finson, has indicated that they will be fighting for bail for the deejay while the trial stays pending.
