IN-DEPTH: Examining Why Vybz Kartel Trial Main Witness Went Into Hiding

After days of back and forth between the prosecution and defense over a statement by an alleged witness, Justice Bryan Sykes sided with Kartel’s lawyers and rejected the states’ motion.

Justice Sykes says he was not convinced prosecutors did all they could to locate the two witnesses, who are believed to be in hiding.

Vybz Kartel, whose government name is Adidja Palmer, was charged for the murder of St. Catherine promoter Barrington “Bossie” Burton.

Detectives say Burton was shot and killed while standing with a group of friends along Walkers Avenue in Gregory Park, St. Catherine.

Nigel Thompson and Lenburgh McDonald were also charged with Burton’s murder. Both men were also acquitted of the murder charge and was set free.
