Jamaican Police Have Denied Reports That Vybz Kartel Is On The Run
The news that Vybz Kartel had broken out of jail with several prison mates has been denied by the police in Jamaica. The news went viral on the Internet about the alleged 'prison break', which led to the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Les Green, telling the Jamaica Observer: "I know nothing about that. If that had taken place, I would certainly have known..."
So, where did the story come from? One cop gave his thoughts: "It may be an attempt by his cronies to keep him in the news but they don't need to spread rumours to do that because he will be in the news for quite some time."
Vybz Kartel, real name Adijah Palmer, was arrested on October 1 and has been repeatedly denied bail so far.
