Vybz Kartel trial hits snag

The trial of dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel hit a snag when it was called up for mention in the Corporate Area Resident Magis-trate's Court yesterday. Kartel was before the courts for attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer is charged jointly with Andre 'Pim Pim' Henry and fellow entertainer Vanessa 'Gaza Slim' Saddler.

unserved documents

The conspiracy case did not get under way today because the prosecution had not served all the required documents on the defence. Saddler and Henry are out on bond. However, Vybz Kartel remains in remand.

Allegations are that Kartel and Gaza Slim were part of a plot to undermine police investigation into the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

Kartel has been fingered in the killing as well as the plot to kill Williams, whose body has not been found.

Saddler had filed a report with the Constant Spring police claiming that Williams assaulted her during a robbery in Havendale, St Andrew, last year.

Her claim was made five days after Kartel was charged with William's murder.

It is believed that Saddler and the other co-accused fabricated the story to make it appear that Williams was still alive.
