(Jamaica Observer): JAILED dancehall act Vybz Kartel was yesterday offered $500,000 bail on his perverting the course of justice charge in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.
However, the artiste, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, will not be released as he's being held in custody for one of two murder matters before the Home Circuit Court.
Kartel is to return to court on January 25 when the perverting the course of justice case will next be mentioned.
Kartel has been granted bail with sureties and is to report daily to the Constant Spring Police Station and surrender his travel documents.
The bail application was made by his attorney Chris Tavares-Finson.
Further documents are to be served by the prosecution on the defence.
