Vybz Kartel along with with the 3 convicts involved in his case may have to wait until 2019 to know their fate.

According to Bert Samuels, the lawyer representing Shawn Storm, a verdict was to be reached in December but that does not seem likely. He further stated that the judges will have to go through over 6000 pages of evidence that was presented.

“There were four appellants and then the record of evidence and some six thousand pages, and we had two full weeks of delivering,” Samuels said. “Base on that amount of work, it is not surprising that the court has not yet delivered its judgment in that it’s been four months since the appeal was heard, it’s pretty normal for the court to be deliberating. So we are just being patient because we understand the workload of the court of appeal.”

Vybz Kartel’s defence team are confident that he will be freed by the court of appeal. Kartel, in the meantime, is preparing for the release of his new album, Exiled Pharoah.
