Vybz Kartel Juror Got DISMISS This Is Why

The ethical dilemma facing the female juror dismissed from the Vybz Kartel murder trial was real and the presiding judge, Justice Lennox Campbell, was not wrong to discharge her, senior deputy director of public prosecutions Jeremy Taylor has asserted.
Taylor was presenting his legal arguments in the appeal filed by Kartel and three other men to have their murder conviction and prison sentences overturned.
The entertainer, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, was convicted in 2014, along with his protege, Shawn Storm, as well as Kahira Jones and Andre St John, for killing Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams at a house in Havendale, St Andrew in 2011.

Senior deputy director of public prosecutions Jeremy Taylor has told the Appeal Court that the jury in the Vybz Kartel murder trial deliberated for nearly two hours saying this is an indication that their verdict was not rushed.
Taylor was responding this morning to the legal arguments submitted by the attorneys for convicts Kartel, his protégé, Shawn Storm as well as Kahira Jones and Andre St John.
They are seeking to have their murder convictions and sentences overturned.
In April 2014, the four were convicted for killing Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams at a house in Havendale, St Andrew in August 2011.
Last week, their attorneys pointed out that the eleven-member jury was sent out at 3:42 p.m. to consider their verdict.
Valerie Neita-Robertson, Kartel’s lead attorney, said this was against agreed protocols for Jamaican courts and placed undue pressure on jurors to reach a verdict.

  1. That’s the reason why I respect America more than Jamaican government… if a case like this was presented in America it would have been thrown out from the second day of appeal… you cannot judge someone base on looks and what they preach to the public… look at the fuck up part about Jamaica if I’m supposed to get a work in Jamaica tattoo and piercing is a big problem, but in America it’s not a problem because that’s your body and your free to do what you want with it as long as you get the job done that’s all that matters… i don’t think it’s possible for Jamaica to upgrade and do better.. I believe kartel should run for prime minister and see how the country run and if he don’t run it better we can just vote him out simple, but I believe vybz kartel might be a great minster to fix the corrupt system

  2. Yes a jury is a non partial witness to make decisions, however there are rules that you need to abide to.
    You cannot serve on a panel of jurors, if you have a member of your family incarcerated nor should you,since it’s viewed as a refelection on you and if this was not disclosed prior to the case , that jury’s misconduct ?, just like a policeman; it could leave you open to blackmail and also unethical dealings, Sad but in certain jobs your families behaviour can impact on you .

  3. If she did fear for her life she have balls to say that these guys are dangerous like she was getting paid to say it! Because if it was me and I feared for my life I would just say I want to get off the case I’m not feeling good lol

  4. Bro stop saying if it was the USA it would’ve been thrown out you think it’s easy to get out police/prosecutors hands ere …..look up the youth that commit suicide because they lock him up for a stolen book bag which he didn’t steal it was mistaken identity
