Johannesburg - As former police chief Jackie Selebi's cross-examination enters its fourth day on Wednesday, the prosecution is expected to continue probing him on classified documents he showed his friend Glen Agliotti.

On Tuesday, Selebi admitted to declassifying a Crime Intelligence document so he could be able to show it to the convicted drug trafficker.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel was cross-questioning him on allegations made by information peddler Jugen Kogel, that "the Kebbles were running businesses on my behalf".

Nel has already examined Selebi on his relationship with Agliotti and how he had failed to explain his relationship with the drug trafficker to National Prosecuting Authority boss Vusi Pikoli after the 2006 media reports linked him to shady underworld characters.

Selebi has also been cross-questioned on his links to the Kebble family. He told the court that he called Agliotti soon after the September 2005 murder of mining magnate Brett Kebble.

Other details covered under cross examination related to the August 2003 video Selebi allegedly showed former National Prosecuting Authority boss Vusi Pikoli to try and have the charges of corruption and defeating the ends of justice against him dropped.

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