Entertainer Vybz Kartel spent his first day in jail assembling his legal team, an attorney representing the controversial dancehall figure said yesterday.
"What he has essentially been doing is putting his legal team together, which is myself, Michael Deans, and Christian Tavares-Finson," attorney Tom Tavares-Finson, told the Observer yesterday.
At the same time, Assistant Police Commissioner Ealan Powell, said Vybz Kartel's attorneys failed to turn up for a scheduled interview yesterday, and that as a result investigators are trying to reschedule the interview for this week.
Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adija Palmer, has been detained as police investigate the discovery of a body at a St Andrew house that he frequents.
He was arrested on drug possession charges by cops who visited a hotel in which he was staying in New Kingston on Friday.
Three other persons who were in the company of the entertainer were also arrested and charged for drug possession. Those persons are also still behind bars, police said.
Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is seen here at
a symposium at the University of the West Indies held earlier
