Jackie Selebi taken to Pretoria prison
Cape Town - Ex-police boss Jackie Selebi on Monday arrived at the Pretoria Central Prison medical facility by ambulance, Eyewitness News (EWN) reports.
On Friday, the Supreme Court of Appeal upheld the former police commisioner's 15-year prison sentence for accepting bribes from convicted drug trafficker Glenn Agliotti, leading to Selebi collapsing on hearing the news.
Investigating officer Andrew Leask and three other officers could be seen standing in the parking lot outside the prison, according to EWN.
Selebi was taken to the prison's medical facility by ambulance through a side entrance after being sneaked out of Jacaranda Hospital by wheelchair, through a back entrance
Earlier, Sapa reported that a police officer had been given a committal warrant to make sure Jackie Selebi begins his jail sentence, but it would be up to the former top cop's doctor to decide whether he may be moved from hospital.
But, according to EWN, Selebi's lawyers were given an ultimatum for him to surrender.
Earlier EWN's Mandy Wiener tweeted that a source who witnessed the handover said he was "not in a good space" and didn't quite know what was going on around him.
