Vybz Kartel Blast Police In New Letter From Jail Cell

Having been incarcerated for nearly 17 months on murder and conspiracy charges, Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer
has unleashed his fury on Jamaican police forces in a new letter from
prison, alleging they have done everything imaginable to keep him behind

The five-page handwritten letter, publicized via Kartel’s official
Twitter page on Wednesday, outlines accusations by the embattled deejay
that police have concocted lies, threats and evidence in order to smear
his reputation prevent him from achieving bail.
Titled, This is Adidja Palmer stating the facts, the controversial entertainer holds nothing back.
“In 2011, I was charged for murder by
way of a statement which indicated that I had ordered Lenburgh McDonald
to murder Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton. Weeks later, said witness gave a
statement to the Public Defender saying that he was physically assaulted
and threatened by the police to say that I was involved in ‘Bossie’
Burton’s death. Days later, he gave another statement to the Public
Defender saying that since he recanted the first statement, he has been
getting death threats via calls to his phone.”

“Days after my first murder charge, I
was charged with another murder (Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams). In this case,
the police (by way of a Senior Superintendent who was later charged
with “attempting to pervert the course of justice” in a separate
incident) campaigned every Monday morning on a certain TV station
claiming they had DNA evidence, which came back 7 months later as
negative. They also led the public to believe that they had video tape
of me and my co-accused murdering Williams. I would like to add that the
police made a lot of damaging remarks against me. A most notable one
would be “since his arrest, the community is a safer place.”
Kartel also reacted to a police report
that claimed law enforcement officials found three cellphones in a
search of his jail cell on Jan. 22. As a result of this report, which
the deejay insists was a lie, he was denied bail in the Clive ‘Lizard’
Williams case just days later.

“On Saturday, February 16th, 2013, my
lawyer Ms. Valrie Neita Robertson showed me a document produced in a
bail hearing by the prosecutor signed by a high-ranking member of the
J.C.F which states that three cell phones were found in my cell during a
search on January 22nd, 2013. My bail was denied based mainly on this
blatant lie by the Jamaican police,” he said.

“I would very much like the public and
the world at large to read this letter impartially and unbiased and I am
demanding that INDECOM, human rights organizations and the powers that
be investigate the events that took place on the mornings of November
4th, 2011 and January 22nd, 2013. I have been in custody since the 30th
September 2011.”

“P.S. I have written to INDECOM twice,
one letter was delivered by my common law wife in early February and one
by attorney-at-law Miguel Lorne on or about February 20th, both in
2013, and whilst the true record of the search as it relates to “what
was found where” is at the Horizon Remand Centre, I doubt I will get the
same equitable outcome at the Gun Court Remand Centre because only
their fellow officers (police) work there.”

“Everything as it relates to my case is
a fabrication, everything is fabricated. Don’t know whose corn I may
have stepped on in the past but it is now coming back to haunt me.”

The deejay is scheduled to return to court on May 27 to begin the
Williams trial, which has been postponed twice since its initial start
date of Nov. 5, 2012.
