  1. “Justice Lennox Campbell highlighted that Patrick Linton admitted on the stand that the phone was tampered with while in police possession.” – Throw this case out

  2. everyone’s been doubting and questioning kartel’s faith and now ppl are witnessing it in its truest form and its still not satisfying to hypocrites. Regardless of the circumstances, or how long it takes for a person to show their faith, ppl do not have any authority to judge or condemn anyone else because the critics are no better than the person they criticize. Just because ppl were unaware before of how faithful addi is, they take it as a big joke to see it now, but no man is better than another man, and only Jah’s judgement of him will matter so save unnu breath and go look something positive/constructive to do with unnu self-righteousness.
