Vybz Kartel Family Living In Fear Over Informer Story

Vybz Kartel Tape

Given the informer culture in Jamaica, it is not surprising that Vybz Kartel’s family says they are living in fear of their lives.

The Sunday Observer published a story stating that Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, gave the police high command information about wanted men and illegal guns in Portmore in an attempt to strike a deal for immunity from the murder case that sent him to prison for life.

A highly placed source inside the Jamaica Constabulary Force says Vybz Kartel has strong ties to the Klansman gang and gave the police information that lead to the arrest of several wanted men and also the recovery of 17 illegal guns.

Vybz Kartel lawyer has since denied the allegations. But now the “Dancehall Hero” deejay’s family is in fear of their lives.

“This is endangering the lives of Adidja Palmer’s family, his siblings, and his girlfriend, when a news like this come on the radio and we don’t know if it is credible, we don’t know the source… and they don’t think about how it is affecting our lives,” Kartel’s sister, Maureen Nelson-Palmer, said. “Right now I am in fear of my life, ‘Shorty’ (Kartel’s children’s mom) is in fear of her life, the children and all of my brothers and sisters. Everybody is now crying. We thought that when he got sentenced to life in prison it would be over. But that is not the end, it is the beginning.”

Vybz Kartel and his sons

Vybz Kartel, his protege Shawn “Storm” Campbell, his close friends Kahira Jones and Andre St John were all convicted an given life sentences for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

Vybz Kartel will be eligible for parole in 35 years but the other three men will be eligible up to 10 years prior.

Clive Williams’ body has still not being found.

    Maybe someone should reveal the name of this highly placed source, see how he or she will like to feel threatened… I don’t for a second believe this claim, but lets say for agreement sake that kartel did turn snitch, what ever happened to confidentiality? Since when has it been practice to endanger informa lives?

    If this story is true then both the Police and the Reporter are fully
    aware that once someone is publicly named by them as an “Informer” then
    that persons life is in DANGER. 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, the Reporter and the State have FAILED in
    their ‘duty of care’. Both the Police + the Reporter have been GROSSLY
    NEGLIGENT and both would be liable should any harm come to Vybz Kartel
    or his family as a result is this “informant” information being made
    public! If the information is untrue the Police and Reporter HAVE MADE
    MATTERS EVEN WORSE!

    Every thing that is happening some people still can’t see this is a set up its ok to hate the artist but don’t hate the man based on information giving by a crooked police force and a crooked media that takes orders from a crooked government this is a system thats murdered thousands of men women and children how can anyone believe them jamaican artist still sing about freedom in 2014 why because they are not free they live in fear everyday of police they are the ones who should be hated and not trusted

    • minticoco

      All of the evidence against Kartel is false? All of it? Is that what you want people to believe? The ‘dem’ that you frequently talk about put everything on his phone, video, made up a false witness and told even the accused themselves to make contradicting statements? Did the ‘dem’ also set up gaza slim and pim-pim to tell lie on kartel to the police?
      Kartel semen clog up yu brain?

    This is so much propaganda. Really? Then what happened to his lighter sentence, hm? It’s obvious that whoever is in charge of the corruption is making sure that they end his “reign” in case his appeal is successful. It’s crazy how that they run to media with the wildness and his family targets.IDK which is worse, the “highly placed source” or the media for perpetuating the ongoing charade. It reads like great fiction.

    • Ross Margarette

      On point my man

  • mike-mike

    Why is his family living in fear? They all say that he is innocent of all charges and not mixed up in any wrongdoings. The man is not a badman and knows nothing about any illegal firearms and murders. Everybody should only be sad that he is incarcerated. If he did not tell the police where guns are and who are wanted or bad, then no one need to worry. Jamaica need fi jus free up all the prisoners dem because no prisoner is guilty. The system set them up, so free dem up. As soon as dem free di prisoner dem, jus dismatle the security forces too and let the dons dem run di ting. That’s the only way Jamaica can be better. A di police dem a commit murder and a blame innocent yute.
