KARTEL, MAVADO FREED
KINGSTON, JAMAICA - POPULAR deejays David 'Mavado' Brooks and Adijah 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer were this afternoon released by the police after spending a night in jail.
Chris Tavares-Finson and Valerie Neita-Robertson, the attorneys representing Brooks and Kartel, confirmed their clients had been released.
Brooks' release came a few hours after his attorney filed a writ of habeas corpus in court, demanding the police either charge or release his client.
Both deejays were named by the police as persons of interest and were questioned this morning.
"All I can say at this point is that he is freed and the police have no further interest in him," Tavares Finson told the Observer.
Neita-Robertson said the same for her client, Kartel, but also warned that supporters associating themselves with the artistes "must be careful of the things they do as this is casting a bad light on the artiste".
