Vybz Kartel for court today
The case against embattled dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel for attempting to pervert the course of justice is to be called up in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer is jointly charged with Andre Henry alias ‘Pim Pim’ and fellow entertainer Vanessa Saddler, more popularly known as Gaza Slim.
Henry and Saddler are out on bail, but Kartel remains in jail.
It is alleged that Kartel and Gaza Slim were part of a plot to undermine a police investigation into the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
Kartel is accused of killing Williams.
Saddler had filed a report with the police claiming that Williams assaulted her during a robbery in Havendale, St. Andrew last year.
She claimed that the incident occurred on October 29, five days after Kartel was charged with William’s murder.
It is believed that Saddler and others fabricated the story to make it appear that Williams was still alive in a bid to help Kartel with his defence in the murder case.
