The murder trial for Vybz Kartel which was schedule to end this week will trag on to another week because of juror unavailability. Presiding Judge, Lennox Campbell, told jurors that they should return to court next week Thursday march 6.
Campbell is expected to begin his summation.
Initially, the judge had told the jurors to return tomorrow friday January 28th.
However, the jury foreman responded, saying one of the jurors had some urgent business to attend to on Friday and would not be available.
Meanwhile, on Monday, another juror has a medical test, which may extend to Tuesday.
With Wednesday being a public holiday – Ash Wednesday – the next available date is Thursday.
Justice Campbell settled on the date after attorney-at-law Tamika Harris ended her address to the jury in the trial of dancehall artiste and four other men charged with the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
Harris told the jurors that during the trial, police corruption and injustice paraded in front of them.
Referring to the testimony of Digicel’s Joseph Simmons that the CD it provided for the court to make a comparison of the text messages had gone missing, she said the police were unfair to the accused men and the entire Jamaica.
Harris also said there were too many unanswered questions in the case.
According to her, the text messages about ‘Lizard’ being chopped up “fine-fine” was created three hours after the phone was in police custody.
She questioned why was the key left on the cabinet and who was using the phone at the Police Flying Squad.
She said the prosecution’s main witnesses and forensic expert, Sergeant Patrick Linton, were not credible.
