COURT: Dancehall stars accused of perverting the courts of justice
CONTROVERSIAL DANCEHALL star Vybz Kartel and fellow entertainer, Gaza Slim, are to return to court today (Jan 9).
The two are before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court, on the charges of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
It is alleged that Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer and Vanessa Saddler, more popularly known as Gaza Slim, were a part of a plot to undermine a police investigation into the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
Kartel is accused of killing Williams.
Saddler had filed a report with the police, claiming that Williams assaulted her during a robbery in Havendale, St. Andrew.
She claimed that the incident occurred on October 29, five days after Kartel was charged with William’s murder.
It is alleged that Sadler and others made up the story to help Kartel with his defence.
