Kingston Gleaner - The conspiracy trial of embattled dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel failed to get underway in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court today.
When the matter was called up, the court was informed that prosecution witnesses were not present.
The defence lawyers also complained that they have still not received some documents from the prosecution.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is facing the charge of perverting the course of justice.
He is jointly charged with associate Andre Henry alias 'Pim Pim' and fellow entertainer Vanessa Saddler, more popularly known as Gaza Slim.
Henry and Saddler are out on bail, while Kartel remains in police custody on a murder charge.
It's being alleged that Kartel and his co-accused were a part of a plot to undermine a police investigation into the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
Kartel and four other men are before the Home Circuit Court on a charge of murder in relation to the death of Williams.
