Dear Editor,

Many people, including myself, are very disappointed that sentencing in the Vybz Kartel murder case was delayed for a week. However, I hope that the learned judge will hand down his decision based on the evidence presented during the long and tortuous trial and not be swayed by public opinion for or against a long prison sentence.

May I further humbly suggest that, if the law permits it, the convicted are sentenced subject to the re-appearance of Clive "Lizard" Williams, seeing they all claim they had nothing to do with his dis-appearance.

If by some fortuitous miracle this was to happen, then all of the accused men should be released the same day and they would be within their legal and constitutional rights to sue for false imprisonment.

Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
