Nearly 17 months into his incarceration, well-renowned Dancehall singer, Vybz Kartel is receiving a push on his behalf for a fair trial as fans are circulating a petition to secure the deejay’s release from prison.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer has bounced between lock-ups in Kingston and Spanish Town since his September 2011 arrest as he is awaiting his day in court on murder and conspiracy charges. Despite securing bail in two of his three court cases, Kartel remains in prison as he has yet to be offered bail in the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams murder case. As a result, the self-professed ‘Worl Boss’ will languish in the Horizon Remand Centre until May 27 when the matter will once again be mentioned.
However, Michael Dawson, the co-author of Kartel’s book, Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto has started a petition asking that Kartel be allowed temporary freedom and the chance to earn a decent living until his trial begins.Click Here To Read More
