Dancehall entertainer Adijah Palmer, better known as Vybz Kartel, is to face more questions Monday about his alleged connections to gang activity in Waterford, St. Catherine.
Kartel was questioned on the weekend by detectives attached to the St. Catherine South Police Division about the bloody war between men allegedly loyal to him and a rival gang known as the “Lynch mob” gang.
Police sources told RJR News that the popular artiste will also be questioned about alleged gun-running in the area.
His attorney, Valerie Neita Robertson, told RJR News that her client was questioned about alleged links to gang members in his home base of Waterford.
However, she argued that her client is not involved in any gang activity and the cops were trying to connect him to persons he grew up with.
Kartel, the man behind the Gaza slogan, surrendered to the cops on Friday, three days after the St. Catherine South Police named him as a major person of interest.
He is being detained under the State of Emergency imposed in sections of St. Catherine.
