Recording artiste Gaza Slim has been pulled into the Vybz Kartel appeal with the introduction of an alleged "defence red herring" regarding a 2011 police report made by artiste Vanessa Bling, real name Vanessa Saddler, that she had been robbed by the deceased, Clive Williams, after the date of his death.   


"The judge  introduced an alleged red herring that the deceased robbed the singer after the date of his death. Gaza Slim has been illegally squeezed into the case through a back door crevice," attorney at law Bert Samuels told one876 editor Claude Mills. 


Years ago, the prosecution had alleged that Vanessa Bling and Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, conspired to falsify evidence in relation to the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams, who was allegedly bludgeoned to death by a group of men including Kartel at a house in Havendale, St Andrew last year. His body has not yet been found.


Saddler had been charged in 2011 when she reported to the Constant Spring Police that she had been robbed by Williams after Kartel was arrested for his murder.


In September 2014, the charges against Bling and her co-accused, deejay Vybz Kartel, were dropped in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court in Half-Way-Tree. The charges were dropped on the grounds that Kartel’s murder conviction and sentence, which is tied to the case, was being appealed.


Now it seems that Vanessa Bling will once again be pulled into the tangled web of the Vybz Kartel murder drama.
