In what has been described as one of the most high profile cases in Jamaican history, Adijah Palmer has had numerous ups and downs.
The latest developments in this ‘roller-coaster like‘ murder trial seem to favour him and his legal team greatly as they continue to fight for an innocent verdict.
The most recent arguments by the defence strike a hard blow at core elements of the prosecution’s case.
The Crown witness in the trial Corporal Shawn Brown, has been accused of deliberately attempting to mislead the court by presenting only specially selected cell phone texts by the co-accused.
Defence attorney Tom Tavares-Finson suggested Thursday that the witness abstracted texts from a series sent by co-accused Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell which gave the impression that Campbell was referring to victim Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
The texts were sent to an unknown number, the court was told.
However upon request by the defence that information from the unedited disc be presented, it was revealed that the unknown number was that of Campbell’s girlfriend and the texts were regarding their daughter Lizzy’s school supplies.
With these latest developments, what kind of verdict are you expecting for the “Dancehall Hero”? Let us know in the comments.
