Embattled dancehall star Vybz Kartel is currently channeling his focusing on his appeal.
The self proclaim Worl’Boss, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, Andre St John are currently serving a life sentence in a maximum security prison after being convicted for murder on March 13.
Kartel and his three co-convicts have since filed an appeal for a new trial on the grounds that they received an unfair trial.
But law enforcement sources told Urban Islandz that the appeal process in Jamaica could take up to five years due to a huge backlog of cases.
“Currently the Appeal Court is seeing cases that were filed up to five or more years ago,” the source said. “So it could be a number of years before Vybz Kartel get a decision on his appeal. In the meantime he will continue to serve his sentencing.”
Vybz Kartel will become eligible for parole in 35 years when he will be 73 years old.
Kartel says he will not be making music in prison because he was sentenced to do hard labour.
