(Jamaica Observer) A cellphone belonging to incarcerated dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel — and which featured prominently in his 2014 murder conviction — was recently examined by defence attorneys, according to high-profile lawyer Bert Samuels.
Samuels, who represents Kartel’s co-accused Shawn “Shawn Storm” Campbell, was speaking with the Jamaica Observer yesterday.
“[Vybz] Kartel’s phone was recently examined by defence experts. Though it’s Kartel’s, it was used against Campbell,” he said.
During the 2014 trial, lawyers maintained that the phone evidence used to convict the men was contaminated, as police had used the phone’s data. Justice Lennox Campbell, who presided over the trial, also admitted that the phone evidence was compromised.
