Vybz Kartel and his three co-convicts have filed appeals against their conviction and sentences, claiming they got an unfair trial, and that there was a miscarriage of justice in the matter. The appeals were filed in the Court of Appeal on Tuesday.

Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, Shawn 'Shawn Storm' Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St John were sentenced on April 3 to life imprisonment for the August 16, 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams. Vybz Kartel listed the following grounds and particulars: * Unfair trial: That the evidence and testimonies upon which the learned trial judge relied to direct the jury and subsequently led to my conviction lacked facts and credibility, thus rendering the verdict unsafe in the circumstance. * Lack of evidence: during the trial the prosecution failed to present the court any form of substantive material evidence, that is, scientific material, or DNA evidence to link me to the alleged crime. * Misidentified by witness: That the main prosecution witness wrongfully identified me as person or among any persons who committed the alleged crime. * Miscarriage of justice: That based on the evidence in respect of a time date, the court failed to recognise the fact that I could not have committed the alleged crime.
