At the request of his lawyers, the Police High Command has reportedly launched an investigation into reports that contraband was found in the cell of entertainer Vybz†Kartel.
Adidjah 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer Ė File
In a news release on September 18, the Constabulary Communication Network reported that the contraband, a DVD player, an Apple iPod and two cellular phones, were found in Kartelís possession at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre in Kingston.
The police have said the items were seized in connection to a murder inquiry being conducted following the shooting death of popular music producer Patrick Samuels otherwise called†'Roach'.
However, Attorney-at-Law Tom Tavares-Finson, said his client was given legal permission for the DVD player and Apple iPod and has since submitted a copy of the permission granted to Kartel, whose given name is Adidjah†Palmer.
He argued that the news release was calculated to prejudice a pending murder trial involving Kartel and wrote to several State authorities including the police commissioner calling for an investigation into the motives of the police†search.
Tavares-Finson told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre last night that officials from the police commissionerís office visited Kartel last week Thursday as part of an†enquiry.
The lawyer has also said their investigations revealed that the phones, reportedly taken from Kartelís cell, were taken from an adjoining cell.
Kartel is to go on trial in the Home Circuit Court on November 18th in relation to the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
