Vybz Kartel Trial: Jan 16th, Cable & Wireless fraud expert testified

The murder trial for Dancehall artiste Vybz kartel and 4(four) other co-accused in the killing of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams resumes today January 16th, 2014 in the Home Circuit Court in Downtown, Kingston. The high profile trial took a break yesterday January 15th because two jurors had appointments to which they must attend outside the courts. Cable & Wireless fraud expert Rudolf Miles, took the stand today and testified in the Vybz Kartel murder trial that following a police request, the company confirmed a BlackBerry smart phone registered to an Adidjah Palmer. The Crown is hoping telephone records from both Digicel and Cable and Wireless will help to bolster its case. Miles is a regional fraud manager for Cable & Wireless, based in the Cayman Islands. Cable & Wireless is the parent company for LIME. Miles told the court this morning that he received a request from the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) on November 15, 2011 in relation to four BlackBerry personal identification numbers (PIN). He said checks in Cable & Wireless’ Research in Motion database system later revealed that one of the PINs, 234BAE6D, was linked to the number, 876-343-5588. He further told the court that the subscriber information for that number was registered to an Adidjah Palmer, with the date of birth as 12/12/1980. According to Miles, the phone was activated on February, 7, 2011 and became inactive on the company’s system on June 8, 2013. Under cross examination from Kartel’s lawyer, Tom Tavares-Finson, the Cable & Wireless official said the information on the system comes from the subscribers themselves. He also said persons entering into a contract with Cable & Wireless would provide their personal information. However, Tavares-Finson suggested to him that the information was taken from ID cards, which is the expectation of the agents who collect the registration data. Tavares-Finson also suggested that Kartel’s birthdate was actually, January 7, 1976. The witness admitted there was no address in the information adding that in the normal course of things, an address would be required. He said the information presented in court is what was recorded in Cable & Wireless’ system. However, Tavares-Finson asked the witness if he considered it odd that the system contained no tax registration number, address or ID information. The witness replied “no”. Miles also agreed with another defense attorney, Pierre Rogers that birth dates are used to distinguish subscribers with the same name. Miles told the court that outside of the request he received from the JCF, he was not aware of any other. He said his statement was given on January 9. Adidja Palmer aka Vybz Kartel is jointly charged with fellow entertainer Shawn Campbell aka Shawn Storm, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John for murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
