No Comments


The judge presiding over the murder case involving Vybz Kartel says that the meeting between the juror and the defense attorney will not affect the case.

Justice Lennox Campbell says that the recent incident in which a juror communicated with one of the defense attorneys will not affect the outcome or proceedings of the murder trial.

He made this ruling following a meeting in chambers with the attorneys this morning. Justice Campbell described the interaction between the two as being innocent.

The jurors were instructed to return on Friday.

Justice Campbell told the jurors that when the case resumes it is expected to continue with the smooth flowing of witness testimonies.

Group business risk officer for Digicel, Joseph Simmonds who was at court today, expecting to testify, was told to return on Thursday as well.

Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm along with three others are jointly charged with the August 2011 murder of Clive Lizard Williams.
