In January, Bert Samuels, the attorney for Kartel, said his team was looking at a March deadline for the Appeal Court to return with a verdict.
“It’s a new term, and we are hoping that during this term, which lasts up to the end of March, we will get the judgement,” Samuels said during an interview. “So we are anxiously awaiting the judgement in that case, and we’re very very optimistic, so let’s see what happens.”
Kartel, whose given name is Adidja Palmer, and Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, are jointly charged with Kahira Jones and Andre St John for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
At the end of the trial, which lasted 65 days, the four were convicted by an 11-member jury and received life sentences. Vybz Kartel will be eligible for parole after serving 35 years.
