Defence attorney Pierre Rogers Monday in the Vybz Kartel murder trial cited the alleged tampering of evidence by the police and the action of the Crown as reasons he thinks there was a conspiracy to imprison the five accused men.
“There is something stink in the state of Denmark,” Rogers told the 11-member panel of jurors during his final argument to the court.
Rogers also pointed to what he said are various inconsistencies in the testimony of the prosecution’s star witness as further evidence that the prosecution had no case against the accused men.
The five are on trial for the killing of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams believed to have been committed at Kartel’s Havendale home in August 2011.
Kartel (Adijah Palmer), Shawn Campbell, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John will most likely know their fate by the end of this week.
Two more defence attorneys, Tamika Harris and Everton Dewar, are expected to present their final arguments after Rogers.
Justice Lennox Campbell will then present his summation before the matter is handed over to the jurors for their deliberation.
