Judgment day for Selebi

2010-07-01 07:46
Johannesburg - Judgment in former national police commissioner Jackie Selebi's corruption case will be delivered on Thursday in the South Gauteng High Court.

Selebi faced charges of corruption relating to up to R1.2m he allegedly received from various people in return for favours, as well as charges of defeating the ends of justice.

During closing arguments earlier this month, State prosecutor Gerrie Nel said the State had proven Selebi's guilt beyond reasonable doubt, while defence counsel Jaap Cilliers sought to cast doubt on evidence led by Glen Agliotti, the State's main witness.
Nel said although Selebi had ensured that no paper trail existed of financial kickbacks he received from Agliotti and the Kebble mining family, the State had nevertheless proven his guilt.

Cilliers tore apart evidence led by Agliotti, saying the State had based its entire case on an "unscrupulous, dangerous man" and "false allegations against Selebi".

Selebi pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him.
