Vybz Kartel “Prison Break” Update

So we reported about the Vybz Kartel prison break and apparently the whole thing turned out to be just a rumor…it’d be cooler if it wasn’t though.

Kartel’s lawyer is now clearing things up… see what he had to say below

Clarifying the rumor:

“We were in court with [Vybz Kartel] this morning,so as far as his location and his status he’s still in the custody of the police. He did attend court this morning. He was brought to court by the police. As far as if people are concerned with whether or not it’s true, or any doubt, I think we can put that to rest. His defense team was in court this morning, and he was also present.”

On Kartel’s state of mind:

“As always, he’s in good spirits. He has full confidence in his defense team, which he chose himself. As far as we’re concerned, we will make significant progress as time passes. We’re confident that, based on what we have seen, it is going to be very difficult for the prosecution to continue bringing cases against him.”

On the possible motives behind the rumor:

“Eventually it will be a jury trial. When one considers the population of Jamaica, you have to realize that it is a small jury pool. Any thought of rumor or any story being carried that is not true will prejudice the jury pool. We have to be very careful. At the end of the day, we want him to have a fair trial. It’s not about prejudice one way or the other, but about a fail trial. That is what we are seeking as the defense.”

On Kartel’s reaction to the rumors:

“He laughed [Laughs.]! The sense of humor is still in tact.”
