A case management hearing is set for late this week ahead of the appeal of convicted murderer and dancehall star, Vybz Kartel.

The case management hearing is to take place on Thursday. It’s expected to be the final hearing before Kartel’s appeal is heard on July 8.

Kartel and several co-convicts were found guilty in April 2014 for murdering Clive Lizard Williams in Havendale St. Andrew.

The entertainer and his attorneys are alleging that he was not given a fair trial.

Kartel’s lawyers have also argued that Justice Lennox Campbell displayed bias in presiding over the trial.

Prosecutors have rejected those arguments.
