Vybz Kartel Trial: Judge Continues Jury Instructions Today

During his opening remarks last Thursday, Justice Lennox Campbell told the 11-member jury that they should not find Vybz Kartel guilty solely based on the content of his lyrics or his character.

Instead, they should focus on the evidence presented before the courts during the over three months long trial.

The judge also made specific references to the text messages and voice notes presented, but not without objection from Vybz Kartel’s attorney.

However, the judge says Kartel did not denied that the voice on the voice notes was his.

Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are all on trial for the alleged murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

The Crown says Williams, who is a former associate of the accused men, was killed on August 16, 2011 over two missing guns belonging to the dancehall star.

His body has yet to be found.

A verdict in the trial is expected by the middle of this week.


  1. Well this is it kartel, 25 to life. You and shawn storm are the mastermind behind the killing. I expect his fan to say otherwise, but some people just being naive or don’t care because the person that was killed not related to them. People put the gun man where he belong, IN JAIL

      • Rude boy yuh fi stop disrespect people. You have a valid reason to dislike kartel. Jamaica is a GOD fearing nation and from wi likkle and a grow wi know seh bleaching a di woman dem ting. I would agree that he’s not a good role model for our younger generation but, that’s me. I wouldn’t expect everyone to share the same opinion. One of the reasons you dislike kartel is that, he disrespects too many people but, you’re proving that you’re not different from him. Go and read your posts and see how many people you told about their mother’s underneath just because they have a different veiw from yours. Look into yuhself rude bwoy and stop being an internet bad man because half the people you disrespect on here would probably be more physical than you in an actual fight.

  4. Di judge seh don’t find him guilty solely on his lyrics and character…(not solely but partially)… but yuh can find him guilty pon all di evidence provided, especially di texts and voice notes… hmm hmm…story cum to bump…seem to me like seh dat was an indication to the jury for them to return the guilty verdict… mi start looking forward to di re-trial already

  5. Even tho wi all kno seh di case rigged from top to bottom, Kartel still aguh get di guilty verdict because the justice system wouldn’t be able to afford the lawsuit following an aquital … anyway, mi ave a strong feeling seh him wi get weh pon di re-trial
