Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, is back in the Home Circuit court today for day 34 of the ongoing trial.
Kartel, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams are all on trial for the alleged murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
Yesterday, defense attorneys got their turn to cross-examined Detective Corporal Shawn Brown from the Organized Crime Investigation Division (OCID), who presented the much talked about text messages in court earlier this week.
Under cross-examination from Kartel’s lead attorney Tom Tavares-Finson, Brown admitted that he mislead the court when he linked a text message sent by Shawn Storm to the victim Clive “Lizard” Williams, when the dancehall star was refering to his daughter name Lizzy.
Yesterday, Cable & Wireless regional fraud expert, Rudolf Miles, also took the witness stand where he testified that a Blackberry smartphone with PIN number 234BAE6D was linked to phone number 876-343-5588 and registered to Adidja Palmer, which is Vybz Kartel’s government name.
However, Miles told defense attorney Tom Tavares-Finson that the date of birth for Adidja Palmer registered on Cable & Wireless network was December 12, 1980, But Kartel’s real date of birth is January, 7, 1976.
More witnesses are scheduled to take the witness stand today.
The prosecution star witness is also expected to be back in the hot seat in the coming days.
