The Obama White House just poured cold water on a petition launched by Vybz Kartel fans.
A day after the shocking guilty verdict in Vybz Kartel’s high profile murder trial, fans of the deeja launched a petition on Whitehouse.org asking President Obama to intervene in what they called an unfair trial.
But the White House has since removed the petition calling it a violation of their Terms of Participation.
The petition launched by ‘We the People’ called attention to aspects of trial they called unfair.
“Jamaican Dancehall Artiste Vybz Kartel did not get the fair trial he deserved. Evidence has been tampered with in his case by the law enforcement of Jamaica. He was found guilty before his trial started. Everyone deserves a fair trial whether they reside in the US or not. United States needs to investigate the corruption in this case.”
The petition only received 480 of the 100,000 signatures needed for it to get the President’s attention.
Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, André St John, and Kahira Jones will be sentence on Thursday in the Home Circuit court after being found guilty of the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
The men are facing a life sentence for the murder.
Clive Williams’ body has yet to be found.
