Vybz Kartel Offered $3 Million Bail
But the dancehall star is still a long way from leaving prison…
Following confusion over his supposed prison break earlier this week - which turned out to be a hoax - Vybz Kartel was yesterday (01/11/11) offered $3-million bail in the Jamaican Supreme Court, reports the Jamaica Observer.
This could put Kartel, real name Adidjah Palmer, closer to being released from jail, and his team are today (12/11/11) expected to make a further application in relation to the murder on August 16 2011 of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.
William's body is yet to be found but the prosecution has said that it has video and telephone evidence to support its case..
Kartel, along with three other men - DJ Shawn 'Shawn Storm' Campbell, fashion designer Calvin Haye and Cayro Jones - are expected to appear before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court where bail applications will be made on their behalf.
Should Kartel be granted bail he will he would have to report daily to the island's Constant Spring Police Station, surrender his travel documents and be subject to a curfew order.
