Johannesburg - A senior Johannesburg advocate who applied for a spot on the bench was grilled about her relationship with Glenn Agliotti, who greeted her with a kiss while she was an acting judge, according to a report on Tuesday.

Kiki Bailey SC was interviewed by the Judicial Service Commission in Cape Town on Monday, The Star newspaper reported.

Bailey denied any relationship with Agliotti, she said she was "not friends with Mr Agliotti whatsoever" and that the incident "threw" her.

She explained that Agliotti came up to her on her first day as acting judge, while she was having lunch with Judge Lucy Mailula, and then acting Judge Tanya Brenner.

At the time, Agliotti was sitting at a nearby table with a group of people, including his counsel.

"I can't fathom it how he came from behind and kissed me hello in front of the judges and under circumstances where we are not friends," she said.

It was unclear when exactly the incident took place, however Agliotti was an accused in the Brett Kebble murder case at the time.

The JSC was interviewing candidates for the Pretoria and Western Cape high courts.

      I miss the commentary from other News24 users, their views make the story more interesting and opens a platform for debate regarding the matter.

      @rbphiri 'Komasa' is here under his colonial name but I prefer the comments as they are.

    Because he felt like kissing her or because she gave him the "come-on" Weird?

    the kiss of death- you do-I pay if not you die

    Would not that kiss be sexual harassment in this instance or case (no pun intended)?

    I know Kiki Bailey from many years ago, I worked for her ex-husband. She is a lovely person and even more lovely to look at, a real stunner, and it is no wonder that Agliotti tried to kiss her. I believe her story and good luck to her in her career.

    Its clear that this person is corrupt....and for a person holding a critical position in the judicial system to be mixing with the likes of G. Agliotti....I say they should fire her ass.

      sharon.dreyer - 2011-10-18 09:54

      Bandile, she is not corrupt and if you saw what a beautiful woman she is, it is no wonder Agliotti tried to kiss her. You are quick to make assumptions. She is beyond beautiful!

      Bandile - 2011-10-18 11:04

      Sharon are you saying beautiful people are not corrupt? If thats the case, I think you have missed the point.

    This is silly really... So what if he kissed her? She didn't invite him to do so...

      Marion - 2011-10-18 11:44

      ... I believe her when she says he just came up behind her and kissed her... we all know men who would do stuff like that... if she had been a mean person she could have charged him with sexual harassment, particularly as she had witnesses... as someone else said, it is probably the kiss of death... for her career that is, not an actual death threat type kiss...

    It's called planning ahead. Agliotti was possibly trying to discredit her as a judge.

    Glenn Agliotti is my friend. Finish and klaar.
