Vybz Kartel murder trial

Vybz Kartel will be spending another Christmas in jail.

The judge says the state will not be able to complete the trial before Christmas. Thus the trial will probably adjourned this Friday and resumes on January 6.

This means the accused men will spend their third straight Christmas behind bars.

Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer is on trial, for the alleged murder of dancer Clive “Lizard” Williams. The dancehall stars protege Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are also charged with Williams’ murder.

According to authorities, Williams was beaten to death over a missing illegal firearm on August 16, 2011 at a house in Havendale, St. Andrew.

His body was never found.

    • gullygad

      real talk, if the man guilty him shud be lock up, i bet most a these ppl wudnt defend him it was one of dem fam members dat died

      • realist 1876

        nobody don’t even know if the man dead or alive even the blind can see its a conspiracy by the the police and the so called witness to save him self from being charge with illegal possession of firearm

      • gaza1126

        Your innocent until u proven guilty thats why me love america yard can never see me again only on vacation

    • shawn occonnor

      so these people have seen the murder and they are here sentencing the man. To say some of you used if to start your sentences and based on the approach you have proved him guilty without adequate proof. I have no faith in the Jamaican justice system and this is a deliberate stall in the case so the police and witnesses can plan more…….

  • tpdu95

    but we don’t know the truth story, if he’s not guilty it’s an injustice

  • max

    Who was murdered and by who ?That question is not yet answered so let the man enjoy their freedom meantime

  • shaun

    Why are people so dum they need to read up on his court case he did not kill the person he is the instigator for murder

    • shawn occonnor

      Then if he is an instigator for murder then he is guilty! therefore if one becomes an accessory to murder, then he/she is guilty! In favor of the defence Mr. Palmer is neither an accessory or instigator in the first instance.

      As soon as buju is deported back to Jamaica he will wither and die, as is the case with most…….

      • shawn occonnor

        further the level of intelligence portrayed by Vybz kartel, buju isnt anywhere close to the fading shadow to that. Buju was proven guilty and had overwhelming evidence the case here is different with Kartel.

      • Madrass

        U ansa everybody who say somthing abt the dune head teacher it’s a cold world anybody can go jail if bobylon want you fi go. Jus becuz a person prove to be guilty that dnt me they are really guilty . Anybody can die at anytime mi say free buju banton boboy can keep the bleacher ! Burn dutty gaza

      • shawn occonnor

        Aww, your eloquence supersede me and I’m fading in its shadow. I didn’t understand due to words I’m unfamiliar with. Buju will be free when his time is come but your campaign will not change the mind and reason of a superior justice system to that of where you come from

      • shawn occonnor

        Guess you are just another trol behind a key board

  • shawn occonnor

    Ha ha it’s people like you and your serpent like nature why justice systems fail. I realize your basic ability to put pen to paper and your limited skills to reason also shows basic lack of intelligence. If the evidence against one is overwhelming or if proved beyond a shadow of a doubt then he is MOST likely guilty. However in TGIS case even if Mr. Palmer is found guilty it would not be on the two criterion listed above but maybe on a reasonable doubt. I can recommend u start by reading George P. Fletcher, Basic concepts of criminal Law,
