KINGSTON, Jamaica — It is highly unlikely that the much-anticipated verdict in the Vybz Kartel murder trial will be handed down today.

Justice Lennox Campbell mid-afternoon is yet to complete his summation to the jury.

So far Justice Campbell has looked at the evidence of a police investigator, a handwriting expert and a letter purportedly written by the prosecution’s star witness. In examining the letter, the judge said that it does not appear it was written by the chief witness, because he was in protective custody on the date that the letter was allegedly penned. The letter was written on November 13, 2013.

The judge also told the jurors to take into consideration the wording of the letter. The author of the letter used the words, which Justice Campbell thought were above the literacy level of the witness based on the testimony he gave.

“You can describe a case as a cause, that is the way lawyers describe a case. The Vybz Kartel cause. Is that something you expect the star witness would have said? Legitimize their theory? When he was asked if he knew who the public defender was, he said no. It is undisputed that he was in protective custody on the 13th,” Justice Campbell said.


  1. Judge Campbell……mi woulda love fi si u kitchen cupboard and u socks draw …yu neat bad…..it look like dem give Chow literacy test …and it is undisputed that he was in protective custody ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

  2. Met, today I beg to differ with you sis. The judge DIRECTLY told them it was both beyond believability and possibility that Chow could have written this letter. And yuh know sey I think this judge been reading this here pink wall.

    2. the judge told them that the defence had brought in an expert that said chow had written the letter he was speaking on behalf of the defence ….but when he said it ….he made it clear….that that is what the defence determined without a reasonable doubt………….however he is giving the date and time as evidence that mr chow was in custody …so everyting else comes before the truth

  15. what i find with some jamaican ppl is, they don’t like reading.

    Reading is an essential action for the development of our reasonability.

    We also need to take time out to read with understanding, something i see lacking in today’s society.

    ppl think everything they hear on the news is truth, ppl like to use second hand information and believe in it 100% without even investigating the info even a little.

    the wagonist dem grieve mi soul, a bet if nuff a dem fi read the transcripts of the case for themselves they would feel like real idiots.

    ppl unno fi pick up reading as a hobby u hear, it is fun, it exercises the brain and it give you knowledge.

    not to mention, when ppl si unno pon tv, unno won’t come off as sum real idiot a repeat tings as unno opinion weh based pon weh odda ppl tell unno

  16. Met mi family say verdict read and a guilty please confirm him a soldier deh butmi needJMG confirmation O

  17. Mi know a dem write di letter from mawning…..unu nuh si dem cudnt bring nuh other witness fi com testify, dem did jus a ride pon dah one handwriting specialist deh loll

  18. A wonder weh big gut Busta and him big gut man a seh now, what a waste a trip and money, a weh unno did feel like seh de people dem frighten fe some ole washed up celebrity. Next time tell you friend fe focus pon him music and leave badman thing alone.
