Corruption-convicted former police commissioner, Jackie Selebi, is still receiving a state pension and medical aid, according to a report on Thursday.

Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa revealed this while responding to a written question from the Democratic Alliance in Parliament, The Star newspaper reported.

Selebi's employment contract was simply allowed to lapse in August 2009, instead of him being dishonourably discharged. This meant he still receives a "huge, fat pension and medical aid", DA MP Dianne Kohler Barnard said.

Selebi lost his appeal against a corruption conviction in the Supreme Court of Appeal in December.

He is currently serving a 15-year jail term, but has been in and out of hospital with kidney problems.
