Selebi collapses at home - lawyer
Johannesburg - Former police commissioner Jackie Selebi collapsed and could not walk after hearing that the appeal of his corruption conviction failed, his attorney said on Friday.
"He is not doing well," said Wynanda Coetzee, who was part of the team that represented him at the trial where he was convicted and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
According to eNews, an ambulance arrived at his house.
Selebi has 48 hours to report for his prison sentence after the Supreme Court of Appeal dismissed his appeal on Friday.
She said he had not taken the news well and a doctor had been summoned.
"We are very worried... he can't walk," Coetzee said.
Selebi was found to have accepted money from convicted drug trafficker Glenn Agliotti.
