A source close to the high-profile case against embattled dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel has revealed that the artiste’s 2010 S-Class Mercedes-Benz among other assets, have been released to his family.
THE STAR understands that the assets were released to the artiste’s family by the police last month.
In 2010, the deejay had made the talk of the town with his luxury motor vehicle.
In an interview with THE STAR that same year, Kartel said, “no deejay eva own a S-Class Benz. This Benz is the flagship of the Benz’s line, meaning dis a di top, top Benz.”
He further said, “It do everything except fly, the body can raise, it just have the whole driving experience, is like yuh a drive pon air.”
However, last year, it was reported that the deejay’s S-Class Mercedes-Benz which is said to value over $12 million along with documentation regarding properties he owns were seized.
THE STAR understands that the items were being stored at the Police Commissioner’s office in St Andrew.
According to the credible source yesterday, the deejay’s S-Class Benz is with his family, “I can confirm that the assets were released to his family. I have seen the vehicle (S-Class Mercedes-Benz),” the source told THE STAR yesterday.
The source also told THE STAR that some of the other items that were returned include the deejay’s passport and computer.
Kartel was recently granted $3 million bail in the Home Circuit Court in relation to the murder case of businessman Barrington ‘Bossy’ Burton.
However, he remains in custody in connection with the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
Williams was reportedly beaten and stabbed in Havendale, St Andrew, on August 16, but the police are yet to locate his body.
In the meantime, Kartel, who has been in custody since October 1 last year is to return to court on April 13.
