KINGSTON, Jamaica – It is now business as usual downtown Kingston as the police have removed the barriers set up Wednesday in the vicinity of the Supreme Court.

Tuesday evening the police announced a road closure and traffic changes downtown Kingston until Friday, but did not give a reason. 

The cordon Wednesday blocked traffic from South Parade on to King and Church streets; the intersection of King Street and Harbour Street was also blocked by the police, barring vehicular access to the Supreme Court. 

The court on King Street is the venue for the murder trial of entertainer Vybz Kartel and four co-accused in the August, 2011 killing of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.

The trial continues.
