Judge Lennox Campbell on Wednesday wrapped up his summation of the prosecution 24 witnesses in the Home Circuit court.
The judge also told the jury to not find Vybz Kartel guilty based on the content of his lyrics.
On Thursday the presiding judge in Vybz Kartel murder trial
will give the 11-member jury his summation of the defense witnesses
when the trial resume Thursday morning. Following which he will send the
jury off for deliberation.
Defense attorneys have maintained that the integrity of the Blackberry smartphone was compromised by police officers in the cyber crime unit.
The judge and defense attorneys also lock heads on several occasions
throughout his summation. On one occasion a defense attorney stormed out
of the courtroom while the judge was giving his summation on text
messages and BBM messages evidence in the case.
The BBm message in question is regarding Clive “Lizard” Williams’ body being “chopped up fine fine” and disposed of.
“Based on the language of that text the author
must be of the view that that person would never return,” the judge
said. “If it is that it has been concocted to cast aspersion on them or
to get them convicted, it would be that that person would be found
intact, even if they were dead and not ‘fine fine’. It’s final. It
speaks to the disposal of Lizard.”
“It would be a most uncouth police officer to go ahead and produce a text like that unless he knows that Lizard would not return,” he added.
