Vybz Kartel Trial: Judge Instructions To Jury [Full Transcript]

 
 

When you hear about a Common Design, there needs be no formality. Such a plan may be inferred, it could be spur of the moment that can constitute a plan, no official agreement is necessary. To find all guilty you have to be convinced that all played some party, whether large or small, in a plan which had one intent, to kill.

I must tell you Madam foreman and your members you and I are Judges who try this case. I should tell you we have slightly separate functions though and we should not usurp and take over each others functions. It is my duty to interpret the law. You cannot say ‘bwoi my fren di lawyer seems like him know di law better than this Judge’. I am considered supreme regarding interpretation of the law here and you must take that interpretation from me.

In the same way I am supreme regarding the law, you are considered supreme considering the facts. If you think I wrongly stated the facts according to what you hear, I think it is Miss Harris who said you can toss it aside (* Judge Campbell has a wry grin hee*) ..she is correct, if I incorrectly stated the facts you can toss it aside.

You have seen the witnesses, you have heard them, you have observed them, it is for you madam foreman and your members to make up your minds regarding what you make of them, whether they spoke the truth. However you are not entitled to abandon the evidence and come up with a theory and make up a theory not based on the evidence and make a decision in that regard. Your supremacy concerning the facts, does not entitle you to make up a theory. You are bound by the evidence alone, you must not allow yourself to be taken unto a path of speculation.

      • terrence

        If you know seh killing people is wrong, then I would have to assume that you would agree with me that, those who kill should be punished right?

  • tre12345

    a soh yuh know jamaica justice system nuh have nuh sense, even if the the voice note is kartel from it has been manipulated it cant be used as evidence (not in the us, cad or eng anyway). mi can tell seh deh judge yah wah him goh prison lol.

    • shawn occonnor

      The judge is behind it

    • imposing will

      The lawyer thinks it’s manipulated but obviously that’s his opinion and not facts. If it was a proven fact that the voice notes were indeed a galipulation then they would’ve been dismissed and not be used as evidence

      • tre12345

        obviously you weren’t following the case it was PROVEN that it was manipulated.

    • Andrea Lewis

      If you know the case you would not say so, a dirty mind people like you all why Jamaica mash up, if him guilty him fi do life for the life him take

      • tre12345

        and i agree with you, IF he is guilty he should do the time, IF not then set him free. in this case however there is a lot of doubts so i don’t know.

  • King Fury

    kartel should be free just now and you fools that talk hate will still moves your heads to the man music this was a set up the police killed the man,how could anyone believe he is guilty with no body to murder weapon, this is why we laugh there is so much fools in jamaica that need to read a law book and stop leaving stupid comments, leave this page for the smart people and think with reason…

    • peace

      It’s in his best interest to start shed tears now, because he will be doing that for the rest of his life.

    • king fury is not smart

      and y r u doin on dis page your not smart u r a gaza fan that is still in denial OCCH DWL DWL DWL DWL

      • marlon Lowe

        Lol you got that right.DWFL

      • Andrea Lewis

        A this sh– start device Jamaicans, see what it lead to, not only Martel, but all artist with them gun an gun man friend must respect people lives

    • marlon Lowe

      Yow. Not because you don’t read a law book, that’s doesn’t mean you’re a fool..so I would advise you to reeducate yourself before you disrespect my people. Cartel made his bed and he should lay in it..for a so called intellectual guy look like him, he should’ve known better. I understanyou’re furious,but a soh it goh.

      • marlon Lowe

        I think you should tell the judge to read a law book. Because him a goh sentence the man bast pon circumstantial evidence.

      • King Fury

        Sounds like a bunch of goat farmers talking like they know the law you fools well see the man will walk free, jamaica men are sick that kartel a take them gal and just sit and talk hate all of you low life fools should read a book and stop talk and stay out of big man business…

    • Bey

      Rightly said @ King Fury…it could hv been the police that killed him too. The judge couldn’t be any fairer n clearer in his summation and based on wat he said it is only fair he is freed. The prosecution is yet to find Lizard body or the murder weapon and the circumstantial evidence is not enough to acquit Kartel n the accused. This case was tampered with too much n in such a case a not guilty verdict shud b passed. Some of yall basing this on personal feelings. Read what the judge said in full, read to understand n then if anyone has sense enough without being bias theyd come to a verdict only fair…

      • peace

        Well they’re working from the evidences they has, no evidences show that that police them could be the killers.

    • Andrea Lewis

      If he had kill your family you would not talk so, a people like you why crimes are so high with you all bul sh–

  • HOTTEDD_TURF

    The judge also made mention about the tremendous amount of evidence that suggest that Vybz Kartel was upsets the guns were missing.

    At that time Kartel’s lawyer intervene and told the judge, “My Lord with the greatest of respect we have said the voice notes were manipulated.”

    The judge responded saying, “Note that Mr. Palmer has not denied that the voice in the voicenote is his.

    WELL THIS SAYS IT ALL! IF THIS FOOL GET SENT TO PRISON FOR LIFE IT WAS HIS OWN FAULT! SMH! LET”S AWAIT THE VERDICT….

    • shawn occonnor

      Be quite dude and look and see what the judge is doing.

      • HOTTEDD_TURF

        Judge talking the right way..maybe you need to be quiet..maybe you should look again and see how unbiased the judge is…smh

      • shawn occonnor

        Lol…if you look at the way this judge is formulating and leading the poor jury making an emotional appeal, yet trying to make it look unbiased. Sorry, that’s similar to my job and what I do. I praise the defence and use the praises I give to rip them apart because Ofcourse a man speaking so unbiased ought to be believed. That’s what Lennox doing

      so if kartel blatantly lied in court and said the voice wasn’t his when in fact everybody and dem mumma know kartel voice, how would that have helped his case? perjury does not help an accused individual in his battle towards freedom. it was best that he remained silent than to lie about it when everyone in the courtroom can identify kartels voice. the important thing is that kartel denied murdering lizard and has proclaimed his innocence, eff a voicenote.

    • Burn gaza

      Yes my lord real talk 100

  • Tweley

    Cant wait to see how this play out…

  • Kartel enemy

    Kartel didn’t say the voice on the voice note is not his. Him implicate himself. Him guilty send him a prison fi life.

    • HOTTEDD_TURF

      “Kartel enemy”..lmao..ahhhhhh…how this guy ended up in this predicament I am still puzzled…..

    • https://www.org.com this me

      kartel neither denied or confirmed, but the transcript also mentioned that an innocent man does not need to prove his innocence, it is the prosecutions responsibility to prove guilt, therefore it is not necessary for kartel to either deny or confirm his voice. the prosecution must make that case. The prosecution has done a great job of showing their incompetence thus far, but I am anxious to see how this matter will end, cant wait to see where this goes.

      • max

        You took the words from my mouth you genius

      • KJ Legal

        “This me” in the legal community we call what you have just described (neither denying or confirming evidence) a silent admission. Courts within common law jurisdictions have routinely treated silent admissions as evidence of guilt. Furthermore, while the defence team does not have to prove innocence, it can often times be considered professional negligence for a lawyer not to lead exculpatory evidence (tending to show innocence), to counteract prejudicial information put forward by the Crown. The real reason this defendant was not put on the stand to try and deny the evidence of his voicenotes is to guard against perjury and the possibility of clever cross-examination.

  • GJ

    No hard evidence.. GL Bossman Kartel. No body.. no murder weapon.. Even if Clive was seen motionless no proof he was dead no proof anyone killed him. Something went down says a witness who supposively wrote a note saying hes being forced to testify.. Then you move to electronic voice notes to try and seek an answer but everything has been tampered with so you cannot take it serious to the point where you can point at a man and say you murdered him. You cant do this. How are they going to be found guilty?? Kartel will be free.

    The evidence needs to be pretty pretty like a convertible, interior comfortable.

    But.. the evidence smells like a foul odour.

    • peace

      Then go inside the court and find him not guilty then. Stupid!!!

      • Makaveli

        no…u should go in there and him guilty. Kartel is a free man by next, believe that!!

      • max

        You’re too emotional ,can’t you see Kartel walking free already?The jury is human enough to see the machinations of the police.next case please.

It is no where in the bible that bleaching is a sin….no where! People….our God is a forgiving God he even forgives fools and babies. I am not going to be bias in the situation. Yes Mi love and rate Kartel, but if he did it only God knows why and only God can judge. If he didn’t
    do it, set him free…simple.
