A petition for a fair trial for incarcerated dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel has been circulated via twitter and on the deejay’s official website.
The petition which has 146 signatures and counting is urging fans to support the deejay’s right to bail and his right to be able to earn a living whilst awaiting trial as under the law he is still an innocent man.
All this comes after a judge denied VK bail citing that there’s a strong case against the dancehall deejay.
Vybz Kartel has been in custody since September 2011.
Vybz Kartel’s followers are aiming to hasten the bail process by formulating a petition which local and international fans will be asked to sign.
According to the members of kartel’s camp via several tweets, Vybz kartlel is being treated unfairly by the Jamaican court.
They believe Vybz kartel deserves to get bail because the court has brought no strong evidence to the public despite stating that they have video footages. They also compare Vybz Kartel to the X6 killer, citing that the alleged X 6 shooter was given bail because he is from uptown, unlike Vybz kartel who hails from a poor community. The seemingly frustrated fans of the entertainer are crying for double standard to end.
Vybz Kartel is expected to return to court in late May, 2013.
