July judgement for Entertainers Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm

Entertainers Vybz Kartel, Shawn Storm and their co-accused will have to wait until July to hear if they will be retried.

Earlier today, during the final session of the retrial hearing for the men, justice Marva McDonald Bishop said the court will reserve its judgement until the end of the court session in July.

the Justice said it is imperative that the court not only hand down a judgement but also provide reasons for its decisions.

Justice McDonald Bishop noted that the court is mindful of Vybz Kartel’s illness and will expedite the process possibly setting aside other cases already before the court.

She ended the session by extending commendations to the prosecution and defense for their work throughout the process.

Kartel, whose given name is Adidja Palmer, along with Shawn Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St. John were sentenced to life in prison in April 2014 for the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

The murder convictions were quashed by the United Kingdom Privy Council because of jury tampering.
