The meeting was initially scheduled for Monday, but was delayed because the lawyers were told the system was down for maintenance.

The judge also requested that the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, got involved to ensure these persons make themselves available.

There is also a handwriting analysis being done on a letter the prosecution star witness allegedly sent to Public Defender Earl Witter.

Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, is on trial for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams. He is jointly charged along with hawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams.

Authorities say Lizard was beaten to death on August 16, 2011 at a house in Havendale that belongs to Vybz Kartel.

His body has not been found.


Sharon Bryson, a government forensic scientist, testified in court this morning.

She told the court that the blood stain found at Vybz Kartel’s house in Havendale did not match the DNA from a uncle of the victim. As a result, she cannot confirmed if it was Clive Williams’ blood.


Shawn Howard, a Police Corporal from the Organized Crime Investigation Division is now on the witness stand.
