No assault complaint against Shaik

Durban - No complaint has been made to the police following a news report at the weekend that medical parolee Schabir Shaik had allegedly assaulted a man.

"No-one has come forward to open a case," said KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Brigadier Phindile Radebe on Monday.

The police could not investigate a case that had not been reported, she added.

The Sunday Times reported that Shaik hit a man, Mohamed Ismail, outside a mosque in Durban. He had allegedly parked in the man, who was trying to get to hospital. He allegedly punched him in an altercation.

'Half-truths'


The Star newspaper on Monday quoted Shaik as saying the Sunday Times report contained "half-truths" about him but did not deny that he hit the man.

The police are investigating another case against Shaik, which was made by a Sunday Tribune reporter for allegedly choking and slapping her at a golf course about two weeks ago.

Shaik was released on medical parole in March 2009 but opposition parties questioned whether he really was "terminally ill".

In 2005, he was convicted of fraud and corruption and sent to jail for 15 years. The current president, Jacob Zuma, at the time was axed as deputy president as a result of Shaik's conviction. Shaik was Zuma's financial adviser.

But Shaik served only two years and four months of the 15-year term. He was released on medical parole shortly before Zuma became president.
