Vybz Kartel has been in the hospital for the last five days receiving treatment on what is said to be a kidney-related ailment.
His Attorney Tom Tavares-Finson confirmed that the deejay was still admitted to hospital but declined to say much about the situation.
“I actually saw him this morning,” Tavares-Finson told The Star.
According to Dr Elon Thompson, president of Jamaica Medical Doctors’ Association, the decision to admit a patient who presents with a kidney infection is usually made “if, after receiving antibiotics, the conditions do not change.”
Vybz Kartel who is currently serving a life sentence at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Center is awaiting an appeal trial, slated to begin in February next year, in the Court of Appeal.
