Vybz Kartel did not appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today as expected.

Kartel should have appeared on the charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of firearm. But when his lawyer, Christian Tavares-Finson turned up, he was told the case would not get underway today.

Director of communications at the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), Karl Angell, said Kartel was not taken to court because the case was not listed on the court docket. He said it is expected to be listed later this week.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS company LIME has withdrawn its sponsorship of the television programmme Teacha’s Pet which features embattled dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel.

The company withdrew its support less than a day after investigators from the Major Investigation Task Force slapped charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm on the deejay.

“Due to the serious nature of the charges against Vybz Kartel, LIME has taken the decision to discontinue its broadcast of Teacha’s Pet on mobile TV with immediate effect,” the company said in a short statement to the media.
