Kartel Highlights Buchanan’s Speech About Jurors and Cell Phone Data: Day 1 Privy Council Appeal Hearing

Whilst not making any direct comment about the ongoing appeal hearing in the UK surrounding his murder conviction, Vybz Kartel highlighted key points made on February 14 by his attorney Isat Buchanan.

Court proceedings went on for hours on day one, however, the Portmore artiste shared a particular part of the proceedings, a 15-minute video in which Buchanan reiterates a member of the defence team in saying that there was a “poison” being spread amongst jurors, with the knowledge of a bribe attempt by a fellow juror.

Livingston Cain, the juror in question was subsequently found guilty in 2022 for perverting the course of justice contrary to common law.

The second part of Buchanan’s speech questioned the legality and validity of cell phone and other telecommunication evidence obtained and used by the prosecution.

On Wednesday evening Vybz Kartel Shared the video to his Instagram page without a caption, and as expected many supporters were in the comments section indicating that he will get a favourable ruling from the hearing. Notably, Bounty Killer, I-Octane and Laden commented in his favour.

Check out the clip from the hearing that was shared by Kartel below:

The hearing proceedings are expected to conclude on Thursday, February 15.

In another post made by Kartel on Wednesday, he shows a picture of himself and his co-accused associates.

Vybz Kartel, Kahira Jones, Andre St. John, and Shawn Campbell, also known as Shawn Storm, were found guilty in 2014 for the killing of associate Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

Justice Lennox Campbell, presiding over the case, gave Vybz Kartel a life imprisonment sentence. He stipulated that he must serve at least 35 years before parole eligibility initially, however, 35 years was later cut to 32 years before parole after the first appeal in Jamaica.

The men went on to file another appeal in the Privy Council, Jamaica’s final court of appeal.

As a result of the hearing, the name “Vybz Kartel” is now the top trending topic on Twitter for Jamaicans.
