Facing a battery of charges and a prolonged uphill battle against government prosecutors, Vybz Kartel is steeling himself for the fight to overcome the final hurdle to securing bail. He has already secured bail for the murder of the Barrington 'Bossie' Bryan who was shot as he stood among a group of people in Gregory Park, St Catherine in July last year. But he has three other cases before the courts, another murder charge, a perverting the course of justice charge and a marijuana case. He will appear next in court on April 13th on two of those charges.  
He will next appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrates' court to answer charges of perverting the course of justice on May 8th.
The prosecution has based its case on the premise that Kartel's co-accused, Andrew 'Pim Pim' Henry contracted Vanessa 'Gaza Slim' Saddler to make a report to the police that she had been robbed by Clive 'Lizard' Williams. The prosecution is contending that Williams had in fact been murdered before the date of the alleged robbery and the prosecution believes that the report was made in order to give the impression that Williams was not dead.

Williams was allegedly beaten to death at a premises in Havendale, St Andrew in August 16 last year over the disappearance of two firearms. The crown is also contending that Vybz Kartel participated in the beating.

Kartel's marijuana case was postponed until April 13 due to the no-show of witnesses. including the murder for the August killing of Clive 'Lizard' Williams. Kartel and five other accused men, including entertainer Shawn 'Shawn Storm' Campbell are to return to court on April 13 in that matter.
