Vybz Kartel, whose government name is Adidja Palmer, is currently serving life for a murder conviction back in 2014. Fortunately for him, an appeal court judge gave his attorneys the green light to proceed with his appeal case which is set for February next year. His lead attorney, Tom Tavares-Finson, has expressed confidence in winning the appeal trial and getting the artist freedom.

Vybz Kartel and his three co-accused, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, and Andre ST John, have all maintained their innocence. During the controversial trial, his attorneys argued in court that police officers tampered with evidence used to convict the four men, and even intimidated a witness for the defense. The murder victim, Clive “Lizard” William, body was never found. The prosecution played audio recordings in court where the accused men discussed the murder while revealed that William’s body was dismembered and disposed of in the sea.

We reached out to police sources who told us that there are no reports or active investigation into the allegation. Kartel has been behind bars since 2011, and this is his third time visiting the hospital for an illness since his incarceration. Get well soon Addi.
