Victory For Vybz Kartel Says Lawyer

Tom Tavares-Finson, lawyer for incarcerated dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel, said the decision by a Court of Appeal judge to grant him leave to appeal his murder conviction and life sentence has vindicated the Gaza Boss’ position.

“It is of limited legal consequence but an extremely important moral victory for the client because it vindicates his view that he was wrongly convicted, and it vindicates his view that when the matter goes to appeal, he will have a strong appeal to be heard,” Tavares-Finson said.

Under the law, convicted persons have the right to an appeal. However, a single judge of the court is required to examine the court transcript and determine whether the matter should go forward.

That task fell to Justice Frank Williams who said several issues have arisen from the trial, including whether the phone evidence used in the trial was sufficiently addressed by the trial judge.
