No assault complaint against Shaik

2011-03-14 09:27

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.

      Let Shaik stay on parole but cut his free time down to a bare minimum...stop the shopping and the golf...10 minute walk around the garden with a monitor on his ankle should soon send him up the wall!

      wide awake - 2011-03-14 14:45

      This has nothing to do with Islam Michael, It has to do with Shaik being protected by a corrupt government. Can you blame the man for being silent, he will be found guilty or killed and Shaik will still be free compliments of ANC.

  • coonpsycho - 2011-03-14 09:46

    The poor guy that was assaulted was probably ""requested" to keep silent...

      @Andy49: If only all the south africans would have shouted in unison - we would not have such corrupt people in power..! As about Janice: you must be a toffee to "root for shaik" to begin with...! The guy is corrupt to the core, and EVERYONE knows it in SA...! "Terminal illness" my ASS! He must go for the guiness book of records for being the most fit terminal ill patient on planet earth...!

    Mohamed Ismail is aiding the scumbag by not laying a charge.

      wide awake - 2011-03-14 14:53

      Would you lay a charge Willem? Where would you lay the charge? What chance does Mohamed have against a corrupt system, he would be laying a charge against the ANC government, do you really think anything would happen to Sheik? More likely they will find a reason to arrest Mohamed or get rid of him. Can't blame the man.

  • Willem Wulfse - 2011-03-14 09:56

    Mohamed Ismail is aiding the scumbag by not laying a charge.

    He's so terminally ill he requires euthanasia

  • Sword&Cross - 2011-03-14 09:58

    Gosh, the transfer of plastic black bags and cooler boxes of used notes must be flourishing in the background of these mosks. Even zuma adorns himself with indian's from each ear as well as strapping a few around his ankles with his sea shells and wives and LOTS of progeny that need quick multi RBillion fixes rather than try for an umalusi 30%. The COnCourt wrists must be even limper than ever before as they cadoddle down their little road of laughter.

      amos - 2011-03-14 11:42

      Where do mother f***ing bigots like sword&cross, crop up from? The so called "mosks" are places of worship. I assume you are a mithraist / christian who enjoys a jibe.

  • denlyn - 2011-03-14 10:02

    In Durban papers he said he wants to be left alone. Send him back to solitary confinement in prison and leave him alone. Maybe he will go away???

  • Souf-Efrikan - 2011-03-14 10:08

    The guilty half of the corrupt relationship. And yes, Cele, we may call him guilty as he was found guilty in a court of law, unlike the other half that never got his day in court that he so bravely asked for, but fought so hard to get out of!

      Andy49 - 2011-03-14 11:13

      @SANET please do not SHOUT, I already have a headache from reading crap like this.

  • Santapola - 2011-03-14 10:13

    He does not deserve jail..he fought for apartheid...well done Mr..we are all by ur side

      jiamalunga - 2011-03-14 10:18

      Stupid...

      Felix - 2011-03-14 10:25

      Another stupid comment from Santa...

      Souf-Efrikan - 2011-03-14 10:28

      @Santapola... Well done Mr... His surname is Shaik, did your forget, or don't you know how to spell it??!! If he fought FOR apartheid as you stated, he would have been a minister in the National Party with a surname like Verwoerd!! You must have matriculated recently!!

      yttocs69 - 2011-03-14 10:31

      Bullshit.....He got rich from from corruption.....It's not what you know but who you know...Half of the ANC should got to jail for being corrupt.

      Rob Gunning - 2011-03-14 10:50

      He doesn't deserver jail??? He is stealing from you and he doesn't deserve jail?? What's the point of being made free if you are then oppressed by the opresee? What a tard you are.

      Madelane - 2011-03-14 10:56

      Gee I did not know that Mr. (Schaik I presume) fought for apartheid.....wonder if the NATS knew and had a generally corrupt relationship with him as well. Or do you mean that he is now fighting for the ANC apartheid which is shaping up nicely?

      SANET - 2011-03-14 10:58

      DO U ALSO HIT WOMEN LIKE SHAIK. WHY DO WE WASTE MONEY ON ADVERTISING 16 DAYS BLAH....BLAH AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN.....WHAT A JOKE....SIES SHAIK

      DW - 2011-03-14 11:32

      So fighting against (not for...) apartheid means that forever more you can never do anything wrong? You can do whatever you like, break the law whichever way you like and you will never be held accountable for it? This means that the majority of South Africa is now above the law. No wonder we have such a high crime rate.

      Chibuli - 2011-03-14 11:44

      Boy, you are THICK!

      @SantaPoePola ....Can you stop sniffing your socks now. Fought for apartheid or not ... the end result should be raiding its coffers?????

  • Rocky - 2011-03-14 10:22

    What an embarrasement to the rest of the world. This is so obviously Zuma giving his corrupt mates payback that my 6 year old can figure it out yet Zuma, Schaick plus their henchmen blatantly carry on as if business as usual. I suppose in the ANC this is business as usual.

  • Stofpad - 2011-03-14 10:31

    Is our judicial system autonomous? I doubt, perhaps we should blame the people who designed it...

  • Santapola - 2011-03-14 10:31

    I must be stupid but the man was not found guilty...like they said *no one reported the incident*..so this means that he did not commit any offence finish and klaar.

      Rocky - 2011-03-14 10:51

      Yep you got it.. You are stupid.

      DW - 2011-03-14 11:35

      No-one reported THIS incident (I suspect he was paid to not do so), but the a few weeks ago an assault case WAS reported. Why is he still walking free? He has clearly broken his parole terms.

      Mr Hobbit - 2011-03-14 11:38

      Just like jackie Selebi ne?

      Chibuli - 2011-03-14 11:46

      Just like ALL ANC convicts - Yengeni, Winnie, McBride... etc

      Realist - 2011-03-14 13:03

      You MUST be stupid! The parol board has ruled that Shaik is in violation of his "MEDICAL" parole, he has been arrested and taken into custody again!!

      Realist - 2011-03-14 13:07

      You MUST be stupid then!! The parole board has found Shaik in violation of his "MEDICAL" parole, he has since been arrested and taken into custody!! About time...as for your reasoning, it is very sad that you condome people who are criminals, does this make you feel good about th society we live in, is this the values you will teach your kids?

      wide awake - 2011-03-14 14:33

      Realist don't bank on any of what you think he has to pay for sticking, nothing will happen, he is part of the circle of corruption, compliments ANC, free reign, above any laws.

  • Chris - 2011-03-14 10:37

    the real poephol here is Mohamed Ismail for accepting the money and keeping quite.

      svinx - 2011-03-14 11:47

      Remember if Shaik speaks out,Zuma will be history.Shaik is in the best position one can be in this corrupt country, he will always be safe with Zoma and his inner circle.

      wide awake - 2011-03-14 14:28

      Exactly svinx - you hit the nail on the head - absolutely nothing will happen - he has free reign to do as he pleases, compliments of the ANC

      wide awake - 2011-03-14 14:36

      Except for one fact svinx - even if Shaik speaks out nothing will happen to Zuma, he is above all laws.

  • Jasber - 2011-03-14 10:56

    I hear that Shaik is in training for the World Light Weight Boxing title - he has started his vigorous training programme by punching women and old men - wow what a man

  • Selwyn - 2011-03-14 11:17

    That is because the person whom he assaulted has been intimidated and threatened.

  • RollinStone - 2011-03-14 11:38

    We cannot "shake" hands with clenched fists.Why no police case?Is there more to this?Are these jokers bringing politics to the mosques?Is Mohamed Ismail a man or a mouse?Charge the dude and sit back and watch the corruption move to a higher level.....and sing!!! Shake Shake Shake!!! Shake this country...uhuh!!!!

  • Mr Hobbit - 2011-03-14 11:41

    He is being victimised by the press! He is really very very sick. Just the other day, he could'nt even finish his golf game! And on Sunday he had to take an aspirin for a bad headache. Poor guy, he hasn't got long to go now...

  • Janine - 2011-03-14 11:47

    Wow! Terminally ill and yet he can still hit people. This man is an insult to all people out there who are genuinely terminally ill.

  • Gemini - 2011-03-14 12:16

    To Michael - dude seriously - get a life - what the hell are you on about - no one is protecting any one - Islam is not to blame - if 2 jews or Christians or Hindus have a bust up and no one reports it r u seriously going to blame the religion. Your r an ASS. As a Muslim I belive Shaik should be thrown into jail & they should throw away the key. He's corrupt & arrogant & needs to pay for what he's done. Mr Ismail was probably threatened by Shaiks goons so the poor man is probably too terrified to speak out let alone lay a charge.

  • mshayafe - 2011-03-14 12:28

    give the man a break

  • wide awake - 2011-03-14 15:02

    Pure and simple there is nothing to celebrate and no point in condemning the guy for not making a statement. This is a corrupt ANC system who are behind Sheik. Nothing is going to happen to him ANC are above the law.
