Vybz Kartel 13

Vybz Kartel and his four co-accused are back in the Home Circuit court today as their highly publicized murder trial takes shape.

Moments after court session resumed this morning, the deejay’s lead attorney Tom Tavares-Finson complained about a press release sent to the media from the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, JCF, last weekend.

Tavares-Finson says two news article circulated over the weekend quoted the police press release. The release made mention of someone trying to firebomb the house in Havendale where the alleged murder took place.

The lawyer says these statements are an attempt by the police force to prejudice the case.

Justice Lennox Campbell then issued an order requesting head of the communication unit, Deputy Superintendent of Police Steve Brown, to report to court to address the complains.

This is the second time defense attorneys are accusing the police force of prejudicing the case through press releases.

Adidja Palmer, Vybz Kartel’s government name, as well as, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are all on trial for the alleged murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

Authorities say Williams, whose body has yet to be found, was beaten to death on August 16, 2011 at Kartel’s house in Havendale over two missing firearms.
