Written by on June 18, 2024

(ReggaeVibeMedia.com) – Entertainers Vybz Kartel, Shawn Storm, and their co-accused will have to wait until July for a decision on whether they will receive a retrial. Today, during the concluding session of their retrial hearing, Justice Marva McDonald Bishop declared that the court’s judgment would be postponed until the end of the court session in July.

Justice McDonald Bishop stated that the court will reserve its decision until July, underscoring the need to provide not just a verdict but a comprehensive explanation for the court’s conclusions.

Notably, the Justice acknowledged Vybz Kartel’s ongoing health issues. Kartel, who has been suffering from a thyroid disorder and related complications, has had his medical condition worsen, prompting the court to expedite the review process and potentially prioritize their case over others already before the court.

In response to Kartel’s health challenges and to avoid further delays, the court aims to expedite the judgment process, which could involve setting aside other cases to address the urgency of this matter.

Justice McDonald Bishop extended her commendations to both the prosecution and the defense for their diligent work throughout the retrial hearings. Their efforts have been crucial in presenting detailed arguments and evidence for consideration.

Kartel’s and Storm’s defense teams have expressed cautious optimism. Valerie Neita-Robertson, representing Vybz Kartel, highlighted the significance of the expedited process given her client’s health condition. She emphasized the need for a fair and swift resolution, noting that prolonged legal battles have exacerbated Kartel’s health issues.

Fans and supporters have taken to social media to express their concerns over Kartel’s health and the delay in the retrial decision. Many are calling for a swift and just resolution, emphasizing the impact of the ongoing legal battle on the artist’s well-being.

The court’s decision in July will be pivotal for Vybz Kartel, Shawn Storm, and their co-accused. If a retrial is granted, it could significantly impact their legal standings and provide an opportunity to re-examine the evidence under potentially more favorable conditions.

Further medical evaluations for Vybz Kartel are expected, which may influence the court’s scheduling and prioritization of his case. The court will provide detailed reasons for its judgment, which could offer insights into the handling of the original trial and the justifications for either granting or denying a retrial. Both legal teams are preparing for possible outcomes, with the defense ready to present new arguments if a retrial is granted.

As Vybz Kartel, Shawn Storm, and their co-accused await the court’s decision in July, the focus remains on ensuring a just and expedient resolution.
