Selebi takes swipe at NPA

2010-04-19 17:05
Johannesburg - Former police chief Jackie Selebi took a swipe at the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for orchestrating a media campaign against him.

Speaking under cross-examination in the South Gauteng High Court on Monday, Selebi said: "My Lord, the media campaign, its source (referring to prosecutor Gerrie Nel) is the one asking me questions."

Nel was questioning him about a 2003 video that Selebi showed former NPA boss Vusi Pikoli.

This was after allegations that Selebi had organised a R1m party to celebrate his appointment as Interpol head.

Selebi was facing a count of corruption and another of defeating the ends of justice in connection with at least R1.2m he allegedly received from convicted drug trafficker Glenn Agliotti and others in return for favours.

The trial continues on Tuesday.
