Kartel’s Appeal Rejected By Court

The murder conviction appeal by incarcerated entertainer Vybz Kartel has been dismissed.

The Court of Appeal announced the decision moments ago.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, and co-accused Shawn Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St John were convicted in 2014 of the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

All four men were given mandatory life sentences for murder.

Kartel was ordered to serve 35 years behind bars before being eligible for parole while Campbell, Jones, and St John were each ordered to each serve 25 years before becoming eligible.

Lawyers have indicated they intend to challenge the decision at the Privy Council.
