There has been speculation that he was removed because of a suspected breach committed at Horizon Adult Remand Centre.

Following a 65-day trial said to be the longest in Jamaica's history, Kartel and cronies Shawn 'Shawn Storm' Campbell; Kahira Jones; and Andre St John were sentenced to life imprisonment for the August 2011 murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

Kartel and his three co-convicts have filed appeals against their incarceration and sentences.

Despite his incarceration, Vybz Kartel still dominates the airwaves in Jamaica with new releases said to be recorded before he was locked up.
