Kartel, whose real name is Adijah Palmer, was expected to be questioned on the weekend.

But the Head of the Criminal Investigation Branch, Assistant Commissioner Ealan Powell, says the interview was put off following a request from Kartel’s attorneys.

Kartel is being represented by a team comprising Tom Tavares Finson, Christian Tavares Finson and Michael Deans.

The entertainer was arrested on Friday morning at a small hotel in Kingston for illegal possession of marijuana.

Three other persons who were in the company of the artiste were also arrested.

However the police have since widened the probe involving Kartel.

Several houses owned and frequented by the artiste were searched by a strong joint police-military team on Friday.

It follows the discovery of a partially burnt decomposing body at one of Kartel’s St. Andrew premises.

The police say Kartel is to be questioned in relation to the discovery.

Attorney Tom Tavares Finson says he’ll decide whether a bail application will be made in regards to the ganja charge after his client is questioned by the police this afternoon.
