Legal Victory for Vybz Kartel as Judge Allows New Evidence in Appeal

Jamaica News: Convicted entertainer Adidjah “Vybz Kartel” Palmer and his three co-convicts enjoyed a legal victory in court after the presiding judges ruled for additional evidence to be admitted into the appeal process.

Among the three pieces of new evidence the court of appeal accepted, was a statement from the main witness that he and Clive “Lizard” Williams arrived at the alleged murder scene at 8:30 p.m., however, in his sworn testimony he indicated that they did so at 5:30 p.m.

The court will, therefore, start hearing oral submissions next week from the defense and prosecution.

Vybz Kartel, Shawn “Shawn Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St. John were handed life sentences in 2014, for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

The men are represented by Tom Finson QC, Valerie Neita Robertson QC and Bert Samuels.
