KINGSTON, Jamaica – The trial of incarcerated DJ Vybz Kartel and female entertainer Gaza Slim was postponed in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s court on Monday.
A mention date is set for Thursday, August 14 after the court was told of the unavailability of witnesses in the case.
Kartel (Adidja Palmer) received a life sentence on Thursday, April 3, for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams and is now facing a charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice in relation to Williams’ death.
Kartel and Gaza Slim (Vanessa Saddler) were charged in 2012 after an alleged scheme to deceive the police in their probe of Williams’ murder.
It is alleged that Saddler, in order to give the impression that Williams was not dead, reported to the Constant Spring police that he robbed her after the date he was believed murdered. A text was allegedly sent to Saddler’s cellphone instructing her to make the report to the police.
