LA Lewis bashed Popcaan, Tommy Lee Sparta, Vanessa Bling and other entertainers who benefited from Vybz Kartel’s mentorship for not supporting the “Worl Boss” deejay amidst his appeal, according to reports.
On the first day of the highly anticipated appeal, the controversial entertainer reportedly visited outside the courthouse and called out the former members of the Portmore Empire, allegedly indicating that they failed to offer their support to the incarcerated deejay.
LA Lewis reportedly labeled the artists as “Gaza liars,” as he supposedly shared that he will not be representing members of the former Vybz Kartel-led camp.
Meanwhile, Vybz Kartel’s defense team scored a notable victory as the panel of Court of Appeal accepted two of the three issues presented in the application to be heard in the “Pressure” deejay’s appeal.
The fresh evidence also includes a written statement from the prosecution’s star witness reveal several contradictions with his testimony.
The appeal, which was scheduled for three weeks, has been reduced to one week and is scheduled to continue on July 16, when oral submissions are expected to be delivered by respective attorneys on behalf of the “Fever” deejay and his co-accused.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, and Shawn Storm, whose real name is Shawn Campbell, were convicted of murder in 2014, along with Kahiro Jones and AndrÈ St John, for killing Clive Lizard Williams at a house in Havendale, St Andrew, in 2011.
They were all given the mandatory sentence of life in prison, with Kartel ordered to serve 35 years before he is eligible for parole. Campbell, Jones and St John were each ordered to serve 25 years before they became eligible for parole.
