The Police are dismissing claims that attempts are being made at the Horizon prison in Kingston to kill incarcerated entertainer Vybz Kartel.
Rumors have been swirling that attempts at poisoning the popular DJ have been made.
Head of Kingston Western Division, Senior Superintendent of Police Steve McGregor said that he is aware of the rumours and made checks but all the claims were unsubstantiated.
“We have heard the rumors that attempts were being made to harm the entertainer and we would have visited the area and spoken to officials there and found these rumors to be false,” said McGregor.
He also dismissed claims that a female was arrested trying to smuggle poison into the correctional facility to harm the artiste.
“All of these allegations are false. The police have made checks and found rumors to be untrue,” McGregor emphasised.
Kartel (Adidja Palmer) is serving life imprisonment for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
