Vybz Kartel wins Court Appeal and receives $2 Million Bail

The incarcerated entertainer is reportedly happy forward for the results of the appeal as well.

The entertainer and his co-accused had filed preliminary grounds for appeal when they filed their notice of appeal in April, shortly after their conviction and sentence.

Among the grounds are unfair trial, miscarriage of justice and lack of evidence.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahria Jones and Andre St John were sentenced to life imprisonment for the August 16, 2011 murder of friend Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

Williams was beaten to death at a house owned by Palmer, in Havendale, St Andrew, over the disappearance of two illegal gangs. His body has not been found.

In voice notes played for the jurors in the 65-day long trial in the Home Circuit Court, Kartel said that Williams’ body was chopped up “fine-fine like mincemeat”.

Kartel is to serve 35 years in prison before he becomes eligible for parole. Campbell and Jones are to serve 25 years before becoming eligible for parole, while St John is to become eligible for parole after serving 30 years of his sentence.

The men were convicted on March 13. A fourth accused, Shane Williams, was found not guilty by the 11-member jury.

Rosemond’s warning is in response to attacks the ‘Ayo’ hitmaker has suffered after he innocently shared a video himself getting a haircut in the salon.

The video went viral for the wrong reasons as many are mocking Shatta Wale for having eczema around his neck area.

In the video, Achipalago wondered why Shatta Wale, who flaunts his wealth on social media could not afford to acquire good skincare products.

She went on to caution him to desist from commenting on issues relating to Shatta Wale and asked that he gets a job to while away the excess time he obviously has.
