Selebi trial enters 22nd day

2009-11-12 08:08
Johannesburg - The eighth state witness is expected to take the stand in the corruption case of former national police commissioner Jackie Selebi in the South Gauteng High Court on Thursday.

The case began on October 5th and has entered its fifth week, with Thursday marking the 22nd day of proceedings.

On Wednesday, three witnesses gave testimony. These included security consultant Steven Sander, Paula Stefanie Roeland, a police superintendent who worked on the murder case of slain mining magnate Brett Kebble, as well as Clinton Fouche, the director of the Dainfern Golf Estate where Glenn Agliotti was a member.

First on the stand was Glenn Agliotti, convicted drug trafficker turned State witness and the former self-proclaimed friend of Selebi.

11 days of testimony

He spent a marathon 11 days giving testimony. He was followed by his ex-fiancée Dianne Muller and her father Martin Flint, who cashed certain cheques on Agliotti’s instructions - alleged to have been destined for Selebi.

Earlier this week, KPMG forensic auditor Dean Friedman gave two days of testimony about a report compiled into Selebi’s financial affairs.

Sander, Muller, Flint and Agliotti were all told about possibly getting indemnity from prosecution on various charges if they were found to have testified "frankly and honestly".

Selebi is facing a charge of corruption and another of defeating the ends of justice in connection with at least R1.2m he allegedly received from Agliotti and others in return for favours.
