Vybz Kartel conspiracy case co-accused Andre “Pim Pim” Henry was dumped by his lawyer.
Henry, Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, and Gaza Slim, real name Vanessa Saddler, are all charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice after an incident involving the deejay’s murder case.
But now the case is being stalled after Andre Henry’s lawyer dropped him over unpaid fees.
Kartel’s lawyer, Tom Tavares-Finson, told Resident Magistrate Simone Wolfe-Reece that Henry is unable to secure legal representation due to come monetary challenges.
The judge then instructed Henry to secure the services of legal aid and stop holding up the case.
A court hearing is set for this Friday to determine if Henry is able to secure legal representation.
The trial is set to get off the ground on October 27. If found guilty, the three co-accused could be sentenced to up to three years behind bars and fined.
