Vybz Kartel Is Granted J$500,000 Bail

Despite The Judge’s Decision, The Werlboss Is Still Not Free

After hitting major setbacks and having his trial postponed for next year, things are finally looking up for Vybz Kartel.

Well, on at least one of his two murder charges, that is.

Today, Justice Bertram Morrison approved a bail application that was previously filed by the Werlboss’s father-and-son attorney duo, Tom and Christian Tavares-Finson. The J$500,000 bail (approximately $5,500 U.S.) was granted on the case Kartel is fighting for the murder of Barrington Burton, a businessman from St. Catherine, Jamaica. That case will be heard December 3, but Kartel is still not a free man. Find Out Why After The Jump…

Despite the good news, Kartel’s legal advisers report that he is unable to act on the bail offer due to another pending case relating to the death of Clive “Lizard” Williams, who was allegedly killed at Kartel’s St. Andrew home in August of last year. Proceedings for that case begin January 21.
