5th witness to take the stand

2009-11-11 08:04
Johannesburg - The fifth witness is expected to take the stand in the corruption case of former police head Jackie Selebi in the South Gauteng High Court on Wednesday.

Expected to testify next in the trial - now running into its fifth week - is Stephen Sanders, a security consultant.

Sanders apparently used to work for Clinton Nassif, the man who headed slain mining magnate Brett Kebble's security.

A Mail and Guardian article from February this year reported that Sanders had written an affidavit which contains allegations that he was told by Nassif that Kebble and his business associate John Stratton suspected that Glenn Agliotti kept most of the R12m rand they allegedly paid for access to Selebi.

$1m 'consultancy fee'

Agliotti, convicted drug trafficker turned state witness and former self-proclaimed friend of Selebi, previously testified in this trial that he charged Kebble and Stratton $1m "consultancy fee" to have access to Selebi.

According to the media report, Sanders also once witnessed an exchange of gifts between Selebi and Agliotti.

The previous witness on the stand was KPMG forensic auditor Dean Friedman who testified on a report investigating Selebi's financial affairs as well as a Spring Lights account through which Agliotti allegedly received payments from Kebble and Stratton.

Agliotti testified in the case for eleven days, followed by his ex-fiancée Dianne Muller and Martin Flint, her father, as well as the person responsible for cashing the cheques from Spring Lights, on Agliotti's instructions.

Selebi faces a charge of corruption and another of defeating the ends of justice in connection with at least R1.2m he allegedly received from Agliotti and others in return for favours.
