VYBZ KARTEL LAWYER WANTS SPEEDY TRIAL | JUNE 2013 |


Defence lawyers strongly objected on Monday to a sixth trial date being set for entertainer Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, and his two co-accused.

The trial was set to start on July 8 after a prosecutor informed the court that the two prosecutors assigned to the case would not be available until July.
Palmer, Lenburgh McDonald and Nigel Thompson are charged with the murder of businessman Barrington 'Bossy' Burton. He was fatally shot while he was standing with friends along Walker's Avenue in Gregory Park, St Catherine, in July 2011.
Attorney-at-law Tom Tavares-Finson, who is representing Palmer, said the defence was ready and would like to know the status of the witness for the prosecution. He said because of "this case, Palmer cannot get bail" on the other murder charge, because when a bail application was made, the first thing the court was told was that Palmer had another murder case.
Tavares-Finson said he wanted the case to be tried quickly because Palmer was a citizen of Jamaica and was entitled to pursue his life and career. He said Palmer was being treated differently from other citizens before the court.
Attorney-at-law Michael Deans, who is representing McDonald, told the court that was the fifth trial date for the men, and on the last occasion the prosecution advised the court that there was a prosecution witness who was unwilling to come forward. He said if the prosecution could not go forward with the case, his client and Thompson should be granted bail.
A new trial date was set and Justice Marjorie Cole-Smith remanded McDonald and Thompson. Attorney-at-law Tamika Harris is representing Thompson.
Palmer is on bail on that murder charge but remains in custody because he has not been granted bail for the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams. He was allegedly beaten to death at Palmer's house in Havendale in August 2011 after he went there to discuss the disappearance of an illegal firearm. Five men are charged jointly with Palmer for that murder and the trial is to start in November.
