Imprisoned dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel has allegedly written and released a letter to the public. The letter suggests that the police have masterminded a malicious campaign to tarnish his image that has forever damaged his reputation. The letter allegedly begins: “This is Adidja Palmer stating the facts”.
It is said that the letter explains from the artiste’s point of view all the things that have happened with his case so far. These issues being: the statements made by witnesses against him, the DNA evidence that reportedly came back negative 7 months later, the video evidence that the police claimed to have had with him and another of his co-accused murdering Clive Williams that is yet to appear and the disparaging comments made by the police saying that since his arrest the community is a safer place.
In his letter, Vybz Kartel also described the two searches conducted by the Caribbean Search Team of his prison cell at the Gun Court Remand Centre and a later one at the Horizon Remand Centre on claims that he had a cell phone in his possession.
Read what he has to say below:
“On Saturday, February 16th, 2013, my lawyer Ms. Valrie Neita Robertson showed me a document produced in a bail hearing by the prosecutor signed by a high-ranking member of the J.C.F which states that three cell phones were found in my cell during a search on January 22nd, 2013. My bail was denied based mainly on this blatant lie by the Jamaica npolice,”.
“I would very much like the public and the world at large to read this letter impartially and unbiased and I am demanding that INDECOM, human rights organizations and the powers that be investigate the events that took place on the mornings of November 4th, 2011 and January 22nd, 2013. I have been in custody since the 30th September 2011.”
“P.S. I have written to INDECOM twice, one letter was delivered by my common law wife in early February and one by attorney-at-law Miguel Lorne on or about February 20th, both in 2013, and whilst the true record of the search as it relates to “what was found where” is at the Horizon Remand Centre, I doubt I will get the same equitable outcome at the Gun Court Remand Centre because only their fellow officers (police) work there.”
“Everything as it relates to my case is a fabrication, everything is fabricated. Don’t know whose corn I may have stepped on in the past but it is now coming back to haunt me.”
