Vybz Kartel refutes allegations he struck a deal with the police
Dancehall star Adidja Palmer popularly known as Vybz Kartel has refuted allegations that he struck a deal with authorities to have his sentence reduced.
Taking to Instagram, Kartel maintained that he is not a friend to police officers.
The response was triggered by an article on a Jamaican Publication, Jamaica Observer written six years ago.
The article which quoted a high ranking police officer claimed that Kartel cooperated with police in a bid to gain his freedom or a reduced sentence.
In the said article, Kartel allegedly provided information to the authorities about the whereabouts of several wanted men in Portmore, St. Catherine- Jamaica. According to the report, Kartel’s statement led to the recovery of 17 illegal firearms and the subsequent arrest of several wanted men.
He shared a snippet of the article on Instagram and trashed it as clout and even went on to share some laughing emojis on the caption.
“Suck u mada Babylon. Mi an unuh a frien?” he said.
In another post which has since been deleted, Kartel further added that the publication is using his name to sell their website.
“First of all dis an old article. 2nd dem bowaz bwoy de know who mi is. So A mus public dem a try impress.” He added
Kartel is currently serving life imprisonment for the murder of Clive’ Lizard’ Williams, who police say was beaten to death at a house in Havendale, St Andrew, on August 16, 2011. The deejay will be eligible for parole in 2046.
