DETAILS: Vybz Kartel Trial: Judge Summoned JCF Head To Court, Defense Complain

The Crown is arguing that Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams beat their former associate Clive “Lizard” Williams to death and disposed of his body.

Williams was allegedly murdered at Kartel’s house in Havendale on August 16, 2011 over two missing firearms.

The defense counter saying the entire case was a conspiracy by police officers to secure a conviction.

Yesterday, defense attorneys Christian and Tom Tavares-Finson, Pierre Rogers, and Miguel Lorne made their no case submissions. While Everton Deware, who represent Shane Williams and Tamika Harris, who represent Andre St John, completed their no case submission in the Home Circuit court this morning.

Tavares-Finson represent Vybz Kartel, while Pierre Rogers and Miguel Lorne represents Kahira Jones and Shawn Storm respectively.

Justice Lennox Campbell is expected to hand down a ruling today on the no case submission.

    There is no doubt that there is enough evidence to convict Vybz Kartel and his friends but I wouldn’t be surprised if he walk free because the cops and the prosecution handling of this case is nothing short of slappy.

    @burn Gaza I’ve been following the case as an outside perspective and I must agree with others. Your an absolute retard mate you obviously have no concept of the the law all you have done is based your theory’s of the verdict on hate. Did kartel f@&k your wife or mother. Real talk this case has no base for a guilty verdict
