Last Thursday, investigators went to the juror’s house and reportedly seized a cell phone and other evidence as part of the probe. According to the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, the man approached a juror to sway the decision in favour of  Vybz Kartel and the other men who were on trial.

It was also reported that he tried to bribe the foreman, however the offer was rejected and the foreman then lodged a report.
