Incarcerated Dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel is gearing up for another legal battle in the Jamaican court of appeal, which is scheduled for later in 2016.
Dre 1 sources report, the self-proclaimed ‘Worl Boss’ who convicted of murder in 2014 was sentenced to life in a maximum security prison. Shortly after his shocking conviction, his legal team, headed by Tom Tavares-Finson, immediately filed an appeal, citing evidence tampering, witness intimidation among a host of other things.
Tavares-Finson had this to say in regards to the Deejay’s appeal;
“The transcripts have been reviewed and are just about ready. So it is possible that the bid for an appeal is likely,” he said.
Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, and his three co-convicts have all maintained their innocence in the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams. The deejay’s protege Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Andre St John, and Kahira Jones are also serving life sentences with the possibility of parole ranging from 25 to 35 years. All four men were sentenced to hard labor.
