Vybz Kartel slapped with new charges

TROUBLE: Vybz Kartel

DANHALL STAR Vybz Kartel has been charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is charged jointly with fellow Portmore Empire artiste Vanessa Saddler, more popularly known as Gaza Slim.

Saddler appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday and was remanded until December 19.

Kartel did not appear yesterday, but it is expected that he will be brought to court on that same day.

Saddler was charged by the St Andrew North police on December 8, days after she surrendered to the authorities.

She had reported to the police that Clive 'Lizard' Williams, the man Kartel is accused of killing on August 16, assaulted her during a robbery in Havendale, St Andrew.

Saddler claimed the incident occurred on October 29, five days after Kartel was charged with Williams' murder.

It is alleged that she and others concocted the story to help Kartel with his defence.

Kartel is facing two murder charges.

He and his four co-accused are to return to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on December 19 in relation to the Clive Williams murder case.

Kartel has been granted bail in the Barrington Burton murder case but he is unable to take it up because he has not been granted bail in the other murder case.
