One of Vybz Kartel’s attorneys, Christian Tavares-Finson says today’s not guilty verdict was expected.

He says the defence is now awaiting instructions from Kartel regarding the filing of another bail application in relation to the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams matter.

Tavares-Finson says today’s not guilty verdict could impact the Crown’s arguments against bail as previously, the just-ended murder case was part of the Crown’s strategy to oppose bail.

Lead prosecutor on the Bossy Burton murder case, Maxine Jackson says the Crown did all it could to secure a conviction.

The Acting Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions says, the case was affected by witnesses who refused to be available for the trial despite numerous attempts to have them do so.
