The supporters, some of them women carrying posters and pictures of the deejay, offered words of encouragement as he was being taken back to jail after his case was postponed for the second straight day.
As his supporters shouted support a tired looking Palmer, decked out in a purple suit, flashed a weak looking smile as he was placed in a waiting police vehicle and whisked away.
Kartel has been charged in connection with the July murder of Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton, a 27-year-old businessman/promoter of a Gregory Park address in St Catherine. Burton was murdered while standing with friends along Walker’s Avenue in Gregory Park.
Notwithstanding the nature of the charges, Kartel is said by Tavares-Finson to be confident that his name will be cleared at the appropriate time.
“He is confident in his representation and confident in his position that in short order he’ll be on the road where he belongs so he can continue to pursue his career,” Tavares-Finson said yesterday, while adding that his client was doing “fine”.
It was still not clear yesterday when Kartel, who is also being represented by Chris Tavares-Finson and Michael Deans, will face the court.
