Agliotti charges to come under scrutiny

2010-11-04 14:38

The Johannesburg High Court will hear whether Brett Kebble murder-accused Glenn Agliotti has a case to answer.

Agliotti’s defence team led by Advocate Laurance Hodes SC applied for a discharge of all four charges at the convicted drug trafficker’s last appearance on October 26.

The state is opposing the application, which will be heard tomorrow.

It closed its case after calling fewer than 10 witnesses at the end of last month. A key witness, Kebble’s security boss Clinton Nassif, was questioned for days by Hodes. He meticulously pointed out contradictions in Nassif’s testimony to the court, compared to his signed statements.

Agliotti was arrested in 2006 for the 2005 shooting of mining magnate Brett Kebble in Melrose, Johannesburg. He has been out on bail since – but spent a large amount of time under house arrest. This part of his bail conditions was lifted in August.

He is facing four charges, one of murder, one charge of attempted murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder.

Agliotti is further accused of conspiring to kill Alan Gray auditor Stephen Mildenhall, Jean Daniel Nortier, Dr Mark Bristow and Mark Wellesley Woods.

The attempted murder charge relates to the shooting of Mildenhall in Cape Town in August 2005.
