Prosecutor to decide on Shaik complaint

Johannesburg - The Directorate of Public Prosecutions has received the police docket relating to Schabir Shaik's alleged assault of a reporter and will decide whether prosecution is warranted, a spokesperson said on Tuesday.

"Yes, we have received the docket and the [KwaZulu-Natal] Acting Director of Public Prosecutions advocate [Simphiwe] Mlotshwa will go through the contents of the document and decide whether to prosecute," said Natasha Ramkisson.

Sunday Tribune reporter Amanda Khoza was allegedly assaulted by Shaik, when he spotted her while playing golf during his parole for fraud and corruption.

Police spokesperson Phindile Radebe said the docket had been handed over and she could not discuss its contents.

The Sunday Tribune reported that Khoza received an SMS on March 4, saying the case had been transferred to provincial level and that she would receive a decision within a fortnight.

Parole conditions

A second report of an alleged assault over a parking infringement outside a mosque was not reported to police or to the Department of Correctional Services.

In response to the reports, last Monday Shaik was taken to the Westville Prison but was released on Wednesday with a finding that he had not violated his parole conditions, because the second person could not be traced.

They said that the Khoza matter was for the police to deal with.

Shaik did just over two years of his 15-year sentence - spending most of the time in a medical unit. He was given medical parole due to a terminal condition but various sightings of him in public have led opposition parties to question the grounds for parole, and whether he is ill.

His jail sentence was related to the facilitation of a bribe from arms company Thint, allegedly to President Jacob Zuma.

When he was paroled, there were suggestions that this was because of his political ties.
