Vybz Kartel and three of his four co-accused are currently facing life imprisonment for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
The four men were convicted by a 11-member jury yesterday in the Jamaican high court.
Reps for the “Dancehall Hero” deejay told DancehallHipHop.com last night that his lawyers are already planning to file an appeal to have the conviction overturned.
“I’ve spoken to Mr. Finson and plans are already underway to file an appeal,” the rep told us. “There were far too many acts of police corruption involving the case. In addition, there were no body and the main witness clearly concocted his story. We accept the jury verdict but Adidja Palmer is an innocent man being sent to prison.”
Adidja Palmer, Vybz Kartel’s government name, along with Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John were convicted of the murder of their former associate Clive Williams.
Another co-accused, Shane Williams, walked free from the charges.
A sentencing hearing for the convicted men will be held on March 27 in the Home Circuit court.
