Juror in Kartel's case faces court

The high-profile case involving the infamous juror who allegedly attempted to bribe fellow jurors into returning a not-guilty verdict in the murder case involving Vybz Kartel and his co-accused will get under way on April 24.

Yesterday, when the accused, Livingston Caine, reappeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Paula Llewellyn, said the case against the former juror is ready for trial.

According to the DPP, the police have completed their analysis of the cell phones taken from the jury foreman who secretly recorded her conversation with Caine.

Indicated

However, Caine's attorney, Dianne Watson, indicated that she has written to the DPP asking that the defence expert be allowed to examine the cell phone.

The attorney also requested transcripts of the alleged meeting that took place between her client and the foreman in the Supreme Court chambers.

Caine was arrested on March 13, minutes after the handing down of the guilty verdict against Kartel and three of his co-accused.

He is charged with five counts of attempting to pervert the course of justice and one count of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Allegations are that Caine offered the foreman $500,000 to have the jury return a not-guilty verdict and promised that the payment would be made the following day.
