Decision On Kartel’s Appeal Imminent?

Vybz Kartel during an interview with OnStage

The Court of Appeal has revealed that the preparation of its ruling for  Vybz Kartel’s appeal of his murder conviction is at an advanced stage.

The revelation follows a lengthy delay of well over a year as prosecutors made their case to the Court of Appeal in July 2018.

According to a report by Nationwide News, last month Mr. Tavares Finson wrote to Court of Appeal President, Justice Dennis Morrison, inquiring about the year-and-a-half delay in the ruling being handed down.

The report states:

“In a letter dated December 2, the registrar told Mr. Tavares Finson that she has been directed to inform him and Attorneys for Kartel’s co-appellants that the finalisation of the judgment is at an advanced stage.”

The letter that was shared by the news outlet reads as follows:

I write with reference to the captioned matter and to your letter dated 21 November 2019 which was addressed to the President of this court.

I am directed to advise that the judgement herein is at an advanced stage of preparation. As soon as it is ready and the court has set a delivery date, all the parties will be duly notified.
