Defence attorney Pierre Rogers Tuesday continued his address to jurors in the Vybz Kartel murder trial telling the 11-member panel that the police acted maliciously in creating a message about chopping up Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
“It shows malicious intent on the part of the police,” Rogers said. “The police created this with one aim in mind, one aim. This is malicious.”
Rogers called what was done in the case by the police “nastiness” and said that the prosecution has failed to address critical inconsistencies in the case.
“It disappoints me and I suspect that it disappoints you,” he said. “If this is not a set-up then what is? If this is not a conspiracy, what is?
“Why is the Crown making castles in the sky and asking you to join him up there? Rogers told the jurors.
Rogers started his final argument to the court last Friday.
Kartel, whose real name is Adijah Palmer and four co-accused Shane Williams; André St John; entertainer Shawn Campbell, popularly known as Shawn Storm; and Kahira Jones — are on trial for the August 16, 2011 killing of Williams.
