Kartel Cleared for Privy Council Appeal


Vybz Kartel and his co-accused have been granted conditional leave to go to the Privy Council in the United Kingdom to challenge their murder conviction.

The decision was handed down this morning by the Court of Appeal.

One of the conditions is that they must file documents in the case within 90 days.

The men filed an application seeking to go to Jamaica’s final court after their appeal was rejected in April.

The dancehall artiste, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, and co-accused Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahira Jones, and Andre St John were convicted in 2014 for the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
