Vybz Kartel

Incarcerated dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel and his three co-accused will know their fate today when they appear in the Supreme Court for sentencing.

As a precautionary measure, the police will close off several roadways surrounding the Supreme Court building in downtown Kingston.

In a release to the media, the police stated roads would be closed between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. today, but merchants and business operators will be allowed limited access to this area.

King Street, where the Supreme Court building is located, will be closed to vehicular traffic between Harbour Street and South Parade.

Church Street will also be closed to vehicular traffic between South Parade and Tower Street.

According to the police, only court officials and police vehicles will be able to access Church Street from the direction of South Parade or Tower Street.

Motorists travelling from west of the island intending to use King Street to access Parade will instead use Orange Street, while motorists travelling from the east of the island intending to access Parade will do so via East Queen Street. Other motorists going elsewhere will use East Street.

Police personnel will man all points of closure and are warning members of the public to obey all instructions given by them.

Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, along with his co-accused Shawn Storm, whose real name is Shawn Campbell, Kahira Jones and André St John, were found guilty of the August 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams two weeks ago.

Shane Williams, the fourth co-accused, was freed of charges.
