Vybz Kartel Nightmare continues Today

According to reports the prosecution at the Vybz Kartel murder trial is expected to complete its submissions today on its application to get key witness statements admitted into evidence.

A hearing into the application has been underway in the absence of the jury since last Tuesday.

Already, the prosecution has called several witnesses and is making legal arguments based on their testimonies.

Following the submissions, Justice Bryan Sykes is expected to make a ruling.
The prosecution is seeking to have the statements admitted into evidence under section 31 (D) of the Evidence Act.

That section addresses the admission of witness statements in situations where a witness cannot be located or is not available.

The application is being made in the absence of the 12-member jury.

Three witnesses have so far testified at the trial which began last Monday in the Home Circuit Court.

Kartel, whose given name is Adidja Palmer, Lenburgh McDonald and Nigel Thompson are jointly charged with the July 2011 shooting death of the St Catherine businessman, Barrington ''Bossy'' Burton
