Prime Minister Andrew Holness Responds To Suggestion, Vybz Kartel Should Be Ban

Prime Minister Andrew Holness have voice his opinion on Lisa Hanna’s recent suggestion that Vybz Kartel music to be banned from local air waves.

“We have a liberal democracy’, we can’t escape that. And the society is not one that brooks any argument about censorship. We are not a society that holds heavily to censorship.

“In other societies, you go and you watch the movies and it is not just dancehall, it’s just general. You have hip hop, you have rap music; we are just bombarded with things that have different moral perspectives.,” Holness said, according to Jamaica Observer.

“But, if you have a well-educated society that can place these things in context, and say this is art, this is from one’s own belief, it’s not what I necessarily believe, or I know that what this person is saying is wrong, then your society can survive that.,” He added.

In the meantime, Vybz Kartel is anticipating his appeal and his legal experts have argued that Vybz Kartel has a good chance of winning his appeal and have his murder conviction overturn given the numerous problems with the case including evidence tampering and witness intimidation.
