According to a report by the Jamaica Observer:
Entertainer Vybz Kartel in his murder trial on Wednesday at the Home Circuit court in Kingston, addressed the judge and jury in an unsworn statement, declaring his innocence.
“My Lord, my hands are clean of Mr Clive Williams’ blood,” Kartel, whose real name is Adijah Palmer told the court, adding that the Police had conspired against him.
“If Mr Williams is dead, I sent no one to kill Clive Williams nor did I do it myself,” he said.
Justice Lennox Campbell, stated he expects the case to be wrapped up by next week.
