Vybz Kartel is under a lot of scrutiny following a publication in the Sunday Observer where an unidentified senior police officer told journalists that the aced dancehall star became a police informant.
Kartel was forced to respond to the story after thugs aligned to him send death threats to two journalists and the Director of Public Prosecution.
Kartel asked these misguided individuals to cease and desist from sending these threats because it is not helping his appeal.
But there are still several unanswered questions stemming from the article. The police source told the observer that Shawn Storm may have been a victim of loyalty to Vybz Kartel.
This is what the cop said:
“We have information that he was under the impression that the men would be beaten for their carelessness in the disappearance of the two guns. When he arrived, we heard he was surprised to see so many strange men, who we believe to be members of the Klansman gang, and that is why him tek weh himself.”
“We know that it is only after the voice notes were revealed that he became aware that he, too, could have been harmed over the guns. Maybe he would have acted differently if he had heard some of the things that came out in court.”
In the voice notes that were extracted from a Blackberry belonging to Vybz Kartel and played in court, an angry Kartel could be heard blaming Shawn Storm for the missing shoes [guns].
“Dawg him a di first man mi page inno hombre cuz mi a ask him bredren how yo have [expletives] a run off place and yo tho even know nutten. Dawg di man a tell mi say a today him hear inno and bandit a tell mi say di thing dem missing from saturday morning inno badman. Is a lickle bird page mi and tell mi and dem a tell mi say a it dem a go bout inno so mi say dawg unnu betta find man thing fast inno dawg.”
Vybz Kartel also placed the task of getting back the guns on Shawn Storm’s shoulder based on what he said in voice note number 9 that was aired in court.
“No but a same so mi a deal wid it mi affi laugh dawg cuz coming like yo a mind reader bredren. Mi naan kill out miself dawg cuz mi all call Shawn up to this morning and tell him say hombre go bout mi things dem and mek mi get mi money fi buy back di thing dem and unnu do wa unnu a do wid whoever, mi just waan get back my thing dem and a you response fi it so mi mek sure tell him dat this morning. So mi de yah a wait pon di priest dem fi link mi back and tell mi wa dem a do cuz if dem no send on back di thing dem it coming like a dem ago dead inno dawg. Yo hear dat Problem Child if dem cut weh dem ago cut go a dat a di question hombre. Dem dede man dem cyan cut go nowhere dawg. Cuz if dem cut a Shawn Storm affi go buy dem back.”
Shawn Storm was the one who picked up Clive “Lizard” Williams and Llamar Chow on August 16, 2011 in a taxi driven by a man called Need for Speed and took them to the house in Havendale where the murder took place.
The lingering question is whether or not Vybz Kartel was planning to harm his protege Shawn Storm over the missing guns.
Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, Shawn Storm, born Shawn Campbell, Andre St John and Kahira Jones were all convicted in the Home Circuit court for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
The four men are currently serving life sentences in a maximum security block at the New Horizon Adult Remand Centre.
Vybz Kartel will be eligible for parole in 35 years, Shawn Storm and Kahira Jones will be eligible for parole in 25 years, while Andre St John will have to serve 30 years before being eligible for parole.

It appears that a legal battle will be ensuing between reggae artiste Chronixx’s management team and representatives of Platinum Camp Records, following the broadcast of an email alleging that the artiste and members of his band were beaten at a reggae concert in Paris, France on Sunday.
THE WEEKEND STAR received an email from a member of the Platinum Camp Record which stated that Chronixx and his party were beaten by a group of security guards, because they allegedly refused to wear the armbands that were distributed in order to have access to the stage and backstage areas.
But in a release issued to media on Tuesday, Chronixx’s management team categorically denied the allegations stating, “There was no altercation whatsoever between members of Chronixx team and security providers at the show. There was also no incident involving Chronixx or any member of his team where anyone was beaten, nor was there any incident involving security personnel.”
The release also stated that they intended to seek legal counsel into the matter in a bid to get the statement retracted by Platinum Camp Records.
“We consider the false report issued by Platinum to be not only unprofessional and irresponsible, but also very damaging to the credibility and good name of Chronixx and members of the Chronixx Music Group team. We have therefore consulted our attorney and will be seeking to have all necessary actions taken to have this false report corrected, and any damage done repaired.”
Shortly after Chronixx’s team submitted the release, Platinum Camp responded stating they would not be retracting the contents of the email because they were not the creators of the story.
“Platinum Camp Records has been contacted by Chronixx’s lawyer and one of the producers of the event asking for the retraction of the story.Platinum Camp did not write the story, therefore, Platinum Camp cannot retract the story, we simply blast the story.”
The release also added that they were reliably informed about the alleged beating.
“Two eyewitnesses have confirmed the story but we also reserve the right to protect the identity of our sources.”
Chronixx is currently on his ‘Dread and Terrible’ European Tour which began on March 27 and is scheduled to conclude on April 20.
Dancehall Artiste Vybz Kartel and his three co-convicts have reportedly filed appeals against their convictions and life sentences. The appeals were filed in the Court of Appeal downtown, Kingston on Tuesday.
Kartel whose real name is Adidja Palmer, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre Saint John were slapped with life sentences on April 3, for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams reportedly over two missing guns.
Kartel is to serve 35 years in prison before he becomes eligible for parole. His co-accused, ‘Shawn Storm’ is to serve 25 years before he is eligible for parole, Kahira Jones- 25 years and Andre St John, 30 years.
A guilty verdict was returned for all four on March 13, ending 65 days of trial for the death of Williams, which police say occurred on August 16, 2011 at a house owned by Kartel in Havendale, Saint Andrew.
A fourth co-accused, Shane Williams, was found not guilty by the 11 member jury. ‘Lizard’ Williams’ body has not been found.

Last year was a blast. The ladies guh hard on ma set. I had to invite some of them on stage and the thugs dem blaze whole heap a fire in the crowd. Can’t wait to see my Bajan fans on the 21st at Bourbon Beach,” said Aidonia.
