The perverting the course of justice case against deejayVybz Kartel and his co-accused has been closed.
Directors of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn today entered a nolle
prosequi ending the matter on the ground that Vybz Kartel’s murder
conviction and sentence is being appealed.
Attorney Tom Tavares-Finson made an application previously that it
wouldn’t be in the interest of justice for this trial to proceed while
the appeal is pending, given the fact that the witnesses are the same.
Vybz Kartel, Vanessa ‘Gaza Slim’ Saddler and Andre Henry were charged
with attempting to pervert the course of justice in relation to the 2011
murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
