Dancehall artists Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer, Shawn ‘Storm’ Campbell, and two others had their convictions overturned.


Dancehall artists Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer, Shawn ‘Storm’ Campbell, and two others had their convictions overturned by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (JCPC) in London due to juror misconduct during their trial in Jamaica.

The Privy Council’s decision, announced on Thursday (March 14), sends the matter back to Jamaica’s Court of Appeal, which will determine whether a retrial should be held.

The artists—along with Kahira Jones and Andre ‘Mad Suss’ St. John—have served 12 and half years in prison for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
