Throughout the course of Saturday, March 25th, several news sources have reported that the controversial Imprisoned dancehall artist “Vybz Kartel” was rushed to Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) under heavy police guard after experiencing severe chest pains.
Now, the artist has apparently been complaining about this feeling for quite some time. Kartel’s attorney Tom Tavares-Finson told the Jamaica Observer yesterday. “The pain in his chest became more serious and they had to take him to the hospital.”
Tavares-Finson said that the artiste is now awaiting the result of tests conducted on him yesterday.
Whether in custody or not, citizens have the right to fair and equal considerations when it some to health related affairs. His family is understandably very concerned about his overall health and so are we in the music fraternity. Hopefully this issues is resolved without any escalation of damage caused by negligence.
The Palmer Family are in our thoughts. Speedy recover Kartel.
