Prosecutors in Vybz Kartel case are struggling to keep their case against the dancehall star together.

After five consecutive delays since last year, Vybz Kartel’s new lawyer is pushing back hard against the prosecution.

A close source connected to the case told Urban Islandz that the prosecution does not have a case against the deejay and are buying time to scramble for evidence.

“They keep talking about evidence, but if there evidence is so strong why not try the case, why all this delay,” the source said.

“Clearly they can’t keep their case together because and we are demanding the judge release him on bail,” the source added.

The source also said Vybz Kartel and his lawyers are confident he will walk free in the end.

Earlier this week The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP, told a judge that they are unable to locate the main witness in the case.

The prosecutor placed the blame squarely at the feet of Vybz Kartel, who the DPP office accused of bribing the witness with $3 million.

Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, returns to court on July 8 in relation to the murder of Barrington “Bossie” Burton and also on November 18 in relation to the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
