Having been incarcerated for nearly 17 months on murder and conspiracy charges, Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer has unleashed his fury on Jamaican police forces in a new letter from prison, alleging they have done everything imaginable to keep him behind bars.


The five-page handwritten letter, publicized via Kartel’s official Twitter page on Wednesday, outlines accusations by the embattled deejay that police have concocted lies, threats and evidence in order to smear his reputation prevent him from achieving bail.

Titled, This is Adidja Palmer stating the facts, the controversial entertainer holds nothing back.

“In 2011, I was charged for murder by way of a statement which indicated that I had ordered Lenburgh McDonald to murder Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton. Weeks later, said witness gave a statement to the Public Defender saying that he was physically assaulted and threatened by the police to say that I was involved in ‘Bossie’ Burton’s death. Days later, he gave another statement to the Public Defender saying that since he recanted the first statement, he has been getting death threats via calls to his phone.”

“Days after my first murder charge, I was charged with another murder (Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams). In this case, the police (by way of a Senior Superintendent who was later charged with “attempting to pervert the course of justice” in a separate incident) campaigned every Monday morning on a certain TV station claiming they had DNA evidence, which came back 7 months later as negative. They also led the public to believe that they had video tape of me and my co-accused murdering Williams. I would like to add that the police made a lot of damaging remarks against me. A most notable one would be “since his arrest, the community is a safer place.”

Kartel also reacted to a police report that claimed law enforcement officials found three cellphones in a search of his jail cell on Jan. 22. As a result of this report, which the deejay insists was a lie, he was denied bail in the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams case just days later.

“On Saturday, February 16th, 2013, my lawyer Ms. Valrie Neita Robertson showed me a document produced in a bail hearing by the prosecutor signed by a high-ranking member of the J.C.F which states that three cell phones were found in my cell during a search on January 22nd, 2013. My bail was denied based mainly on this blatant lie by the Jamaican police,” he said.

“I would very much like the public and the world at large to read this letter impartially and unbiased and I am demanding that INDECOM, human rights organizations and the powers that be investigate the events that took place on the mornings of November 4th, 2011 and January 22nd, 2013. I have been in custody since the 30th September 2011.”

“P.S. I have written to INDECOM twice, one letter was delivered by my common law wife in early February and one by attorney-at-law Miguel Lorne on or about February 20th, both in 2013, and whilst the true record of the search as it relates to “what was found where” is at the Horizon Remand Centre, I doubt I will get the same equitable outcome at the Gun Court Remand Centre because only their fellow officers (police) work there.”

“Everything as it relates to my case is a fabrication, everything is fabricated. Don’t know whose corn I may have stepped on in the past but it is now coming back to haunt me.”

Vybz Kartel was granted bail in the Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton case in December 2011 as well as his conspiracy case pertaining to the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams case last November. However, he cannot post bail due to the fact he remains incarcerated on the murder charge he faces in the Williams case.

The deejay is scheduled to return to court on May 27 to begin the Williams trial, which has been postponed twice since its initial start date of Nov. 5, 2012.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Inequality
by: Anonymous

Kartel keep on holding the faith the so called society people of Jamaica don't accept you as an entertainer nor do they like u music they say it downgrading to society. They believe that because u are so popular you should sing positive uplifting songs, because you continue to be a voice for the ghetto speaking out against injustice, police brutality etc. They (society people) don't like that, because they believe that anyone from the ghetto who achieve sucess that individual should turn him/her back on the ghetto. You haven't done that and that a problem to these so called society people who think that they have the power decide how the rest of us who are poor should live our live. I am facing the same inequality in the Jamaican society where i work. i just want to ask one question why society people in Jamaica (people who have money and status) believe their perspective is always the ideal one what about our (ghetto people) perspective.
