The Jamaica Star "Controversial deejay Vybz Kartel claims the police are attempting to smear his reputation.
The deejay was listed as a 'person of interest' on Tuesday by the Jamaica Constabulary Force and was expected to turn himself in yesterday.
'This is not the first time that the police force has attempted to smear my reputation,' said the deejay yesterday morning in a statement sent to THE STAR.
He said that the cops, like they had done previously when he was arrested, were acting 'based on half-baked assumptions and ridiculous rumours.'
He further stated that; 'as it happened then, I know I will be exonerated once again.'
The deejay said that he had nothing to fear based on the latest development. 'Fear makes men believe the worst, but I believe in our justice system, however, flawed it may be, and in the end, I will be vindicated. I remain confident that the security forces will act with professionalism in this matter.'"
