Jamaica: Vybz Kartel returns to prison after hospital treatment


Incarcerated dancehall star Vybz Kartel has returned to prison following a visit to the hospital today to receive treatment for a health condition. This after news broke earlier today that the ‘World Boss’ had been rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies for treatment.

Kartel, however, despite earlier reports, has not been hospitalised and his condition is not considered life-threatening.  “He has a condition and he wasn’t feeling well. He was not admitted. It’s not serious,” Valerie Neita-Robertson, attorney of the dancehall phenom told The Gleaner, adding that he will be escorted back to prison later this afternoon. When contacted earlier today, Neita-Robertson had advised that fellow co-counsel, Tom Tavares-Finson, had been en route to the medical facility to oversee their client.  Following his widely publicised hospitalisation in 2017, it was revealed that the entertainer lives with a thyroid condition. (Jamaica Gleaner)…[+]
