Was Vybz Kartel trying to become a police informant during his grueling murder trial?

According to a report in the Observer on Sunday, police sources say Vybz Kartel approached the police high command with information about several wanted men and illegal firearms in return for immunity.

According to the police source, Kartel information lead to a massive police investigation that ultimately recovered 17 illegal firearms and the arrest of several wanted men.

“He wanted to meet with the commissioner who assigned a member of the high command to meet him,” the source said. “During the meeting he offered information on wanted men in Portmore and also coughed up a number of illegal firearms. He was trying to broker a deal to get the charges dropped.”

The source, who is a senior cop in the Jamaica Constabulary Force, JCF, says Vybz Kartel made the offer to become an informant when he realized his back was against the wall in the murder trial for the death of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

Urban Islandz sources inside the police force also confirmed that Kartel did met with the police high command.

If these allegations of being a snitch/informer are true, does this mean Vybz Kartel life is in danger in prison?

Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, as well as, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Andre St John and Kahira Jones were all convicted on March 13, 2014 for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams. All four men were handed down life sentences on April 3, 2014.

Vybz Kartel was sentenced to life in a maximum security prison and will be eligible for parole in 35 years. Shawn Storm, Andre St. John, and Kahira Jones will be eligible for parole in 25 years, 30 years and 25 years respectively.

The Crown made their case that the four men plotted and murder Clive “Lizard” Williams on August 16, 2011 at Kartel’s house in Havendale.

His body was never recovered.

    If this story is true then the Police are fully aware that once someone
    is publicly named as an “Informer” then that persons life is in DANGER.
    In Jamaica the rules of the underworld is that if they cannot murder
    the informer then they will murder members of his/her family! This is a
    very, very SERIOUS situation. If this is true then the lives of Vybz
    Kartel’s family is now in danger. If any harm should befall them then
    the Police and the State have FAILED in their ‘duty of care’. Both the
    Police + the State have been GROSSLY NEGLIGENT and both would be liable
    should any harm come to Vybz Kartel or his family as a result of this
    “informant” information being made public! It would appear that a life
    sentence was not good enough for the Police as they have ensured that by
    making this info public them Mr Kartel will be spending that life
    sentence in solitary confinement. If the information is untrue the

  • african jamaican

    i must say this….are you people fkn’ serious? I love his music. he is a great talent. but he is lost. how can someone with so much working potential make the choices for himself and his followers that he did?left to their own devices, they would’ve killed again. All you kartel supporters, would you trust him with your son or brother? Jamaica is over flowing with powerful african minds known and unknown. but the genius is endlessly destroyed by the negative CHOICES they make for themselves. Where are the bob marly’s? what happen jamaica? its funny how every artist a bad man and will die for the white mans dollar, but refuse to die for the african advancement. think jamaica. think.
