Entertainer Adijah ‘Vybz Kartel‘ Palmer has won his appeal on a murder charge for which he was serving a life sentence and should be out of prison later this month.

Vybz Kartel’s attorney, Bert Samuels, says that he got a call from the clerk for the lead appeals judge early this morning telling him to report to the Court of Appeal in Kingston immediately as they had come to a decision.

“I was very nervous on my drive to the court as I had no idea what the result would be but I was cautiously optimistic. The judge took into account all the evidence we presented at the appeal trial and decided that there were flaws in the original trial that violated my client’s rights. So they overturned his conviction,” Samuels told 18 Karat Reggae.

Now that the decision has been reached in the appeal, Vybz Kartel will still have to remain in custody for a few more days while certain paperwork file their way through the justice system.

“I just spoke to him and he is extremely happy because his career has been terrible affected for many years. Of course my client missed revenue opportunities because he was not able to perform live for all the years he has been incarcerated. He is very grateful that justice has prevailed, having always maintained his innocence. He is also grateful for the persons who stood with him,” Samuels said.

Vybz Kartel’s manager said once the world boss has had a chance to spend quality time with family and friends, his next order of duty will be to go on a world tour to entertain his fans.

“We already came up with the name of the tour. It will be called ‘Long Wait for Justice tour’,” Kartel’s manager said.
