HBO wants to document Vybz Kartel’s appeal verdict

Vybz Kartel

American cable and satellite television network HBO is trying to tap into the popularity of incarcerated dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel, by documenting the outcome of his appeal.

“HBO reached out to me, they said they want to be here for the outcome of the appeal, to do what media does. It would make a big feature, and story for the network television,” Bert Samuels, one of Vybz Kartel’s attorney, told BUZZ.

Last week, the Court of Appeal wrote to Vybz Kartel’s lawyers informing that the judgement is in an advanced stage of preparation. The court did not give a date for the delivery of the judgement.

The court reserved judgement in the matter over a year ago.

Vybz Kartel, Shawn Storm and two other men were convicted in 2014, for the 2011 murder of friend Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
