THE Court will today continue to hear submissions on what aspect of testimony from former Cybercrime Unit boss, Sergeant Patrick Linton, will be put before jurors in the Vybz Kartel murder trial.

Yesterday, the jurors were sent home until Monday and the courtroom cleared to allow Justice Lennox Campbell to hear the evidence on which a determination of admissibility is to be made.

Lead prosecutor Jeremy Taylor asked the media to leave the courtroom for the process given the implication the evidence may have on national security. He said technology will be discussed that is being used in other investigations.

Linton’s evidence relates to telephone and other devices seized from the entertainer.

Vybz Kartel (real name Adidja Palmer), Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahira Jones, Andre St John, and Shane Williams are on trial for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams on August 16, 2011. The prosecution is contending that the murder was committed at the entertainer’s Havendale, St Andrew, home.

  1. Interesting Metty. I’m sticking to mah guns though, I think he gonna walk. Unless they show an actual video of the matter to the courts, Finson & Co may successfully argue that the Weed is inconsistent in his story, the evidence is circumstantial and Lizard may in fact be alive and in hiding.

    I think what they are discussing today is the method being used to capture communications data by intelligence’ agencies here in Jamaica, in conjunction with the USA, and implemented by Telcos (LIMEY n DIGIE) here in Jamaica. Current technologies make it very easy to capture the actual conversations and create profiles based on number most frequently called.

    In short, most if not all of our communications over cellular/mobile phones are tracked by the Telcos and made available to these agencies upon request. Word to the wise – watch what you do, and how you do it.

        1. He said the sister gave them $1000 and the sister said she gave them $3000 if that is one, the jury might as well let go all the defendants because $2000 is missing…..kmrct
