Vybz Kartel’s fate in his murder conviction appeal case is known, at least by the appeal judges. The deejay, his family, his friends and fans will know his fate very soon also. Attorney for the world boss, Valerie-Neita Robertson, told 18 Karat Reggae that she received a call from the court that a verdict delivery date has been set.
“I cannot reveal the date as the court is still reaching out to the other attorneys in the case. So out of respect for the court, the other attorneys and the defendants in the case, I can just say the light at the end of the tunnel is very much in sight,” Robertson said.
From past experience, once an attorney is notified that the date is set, that date is usually within a week. This gives all parties of interest just enough time to make preparations to be present at the court for the reading of the verdict. So it is safe to say by next Friday, the public should know Vybz Kartel’s fate.
When asked if she think Vybz Kartel will be set free, the attorney said she is “cautiously optimistic”.
Vybz Kartel along with fellow deejay Shawn Storm and three other men are serving life sentences for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams. Kartel has continued to be one of the hottest dancehall stars despite being behind bars.
