Kartel gets bail

Vybz Kartel was granted $3 million bail in the Supreme Court today.

The bail was in relation to his alleged murder earlier this year of Barrington ‘Bossie’ Bryan.

The bail application was made by defence attorney Tom Tavares-Finson, who appeared in chambers with Michael Deans and Chris Tavares-Finson.

The attorney took the matter to the High Court after Kartel was refused bail in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court last month.

This, however, does not mean that Kartel will be released from jail, as he is currently facing another murder charge.

The entertainer, along with three other men — fellow deejay Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell; fashion designer Calvin Haye; and Cayro Jones — are charged with the August 16 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

The men are to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court tomorrow, where bail applications are expected to be made.
