This letter was allegedly written by prosecution star witness is now at the center of Vybz Kartel’s murder trial.
Last week Justice Lennox Campbell entered the letter into evidence after the defense called a handwriting expert to the witness stand.
The handwriting expert, retired Superintendent of Police Karl Major, told the court that the letter was written by star witness Lamar Chow.
But the prosecution is contending that the letter is bogus and should be thrown out.
Read the letter:
Good day. I am Lamar Chow. I,m a witness in this Vybz Kartel case…’The purpose of this letter is to inform you that statement taken by the police by me wasn’t willing because I didn’t go freely…’to the police station. They came for me in brute force’ ‘Because this I apprehend fear and I legitimise their theory of what happened on the 16th of August 2010’ , ‘I didn’t intend to be involved in their the reason why I don’t want to come to court is because I see Clive after that 16th Aug 2010’
This letter could decide Vybz Kartel fate after the case is handed over to the 11 member jury later this week.
Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are on trial for the alleged murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams, who authorities say was killed on August 16, 2011 over two missing guns belonging to the dancehall star.
