Supposed Juror Conduct Could Spark Problems For The Vybz Kartel Murder Trial
There are reports that there could be an investigation into a claim that an individual purporting to be a juror in the Vybz Kartel murder trial turned up at the office of a defense lawyer.
Sources say while the murder case was on break over the Christmas period, the purported juror attended the lawyer's office and declared identity.
However, it is reported that the lawyer declined to have any discussion with the person.
If it turns out that a juror had in fact sought to speak with the defence lawyer, there could be implications for the trial.
When the trial resumed this morning, the jurors and the media were again barred as lawyers made submissions to the judge in relation to the in-camera hearing.
Before the matter was adjourned for the Christmas break, the jurors were asked to stay home because of the sensitive nature of the evidence being given by a cyber-crime expert.
The 12-member jury is expected to return to court when the matter resumes.
