Vybz Kartel Reportedly Transferred to Maximum Security Tower Street Prison

Incarcerated dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel has reportedly been transferred from the Horizon Adult Remand Centre to the maximum security Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre.

According to Loop Jamaica, the controversial entertainer, was removed from the Spanish Town Road, Kingston-based Horizon facility and transferred  to the Tower Street correctional facility in downtown Kingston under heavy police guard on Tuesday.

However no details regarding the reason(s) for the move have yet emerged.

There are however speculations that he was removed because of a suspected breach committed at Horizon Adult Remand Centre. 


In March, 2014, Kartel and his three co-convicts Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell; Kahira Jones; and Andre St John were sentenced to life imprisonment for the August 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

They have since filed appeals against their incarceration and sentences.
