Vybz Kartel has been called many things but a Weapon trafficker?
Hmm according to Jamaican police The World Boss was neck high in this trafficking ring and that could be one of the reasons why he has yet to be granted bail.
During a hearing last Friday in the Home Circuit Court in Kingston, Jamaica’s Senior Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Jeremy Taylor argued that the charges laid against the dancehall star are very serious. His argument arose when Vybz Kartel’s lawyer, Tom Tavares-Finson, asked the judge to grant his client bail given the numerous delays and several outstanding disclosures involved in the case. Taylor informed the court about Kartel’s “dark side” claiming he was involved in an underground trade of weapons which lead the Clive Williams murder over a missing firearm involved in the trade. Taylor also told the court that Vybz Kartel attempted to bribe the main witness in the case for $3 million.
Meanwhile, Vybz Kartel’s protege Shawn Storm was denied bail in the above mentioned court. Shawn’s lawyer Michael Lorne made an application for bail arguing that the defense has no evidence linking the dancehall star to Williams’ murder. However, Justice Sarah Thompson James denied the bail application saying there has been no change in circumstances.
