Vybz Kartel Sound Off On Jamaican Law Enforcement In Open Letter
Incarcerated dancehall star Vybz Kartel has penned a opened letter to the Jamaican police force addressing his distaste on the way they are handling his case.
In the letter sent to Urban Islandz by the deejays reps, Vybz Kartel opens up about the conspiracy by Jamaican Law Enforcement officials to keep him locked behind bars.
This is what Vybz Kartel says:
In 2011, I was charged for murder by way of a statement which indicated that I had ordered Lenburgh McDonald to murder Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton. Weeks later, said witness gave a statement to the Public Defender saying that he was physically assaulted and threatened by the police to say that I was involved in ‘Bossie’ Burton’s death. Days later, he gave another statement to the Public Defender saying that since he recanted the first statement, he has been getting death threats via calls to his phone.”
“Days after my first murder charge, I was charged with another murder (Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams). In this case, the police (by way of a Senior Superintendent who was later charged with “attempting to pervert the course of justice” in a separate incident) campaigned every Monday morning on a certain TV station claiming they had DNA evidence, which came back 7 months later as negative. They also led the public to believe that they had video tape of me and my co-accused murdering Williams. I would like to add that the police made a lot of damaging remarks against me. A most notable one would be “since his arrest, the community is a safer place.”
Vybz Kartel has been incarcerated since September of 2011 on two murder charges, as well as, conspiracy and gun charge.
