Selebi trial on hold over document

2010-04-21 14:31
Johannesburg – Former police chief Jackie Selebi's corruption trial was stood down for Thursday morning to allow him time to fetch a de-classified document linking him to the Kebbles.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel on Wednesday asked Selebi to present to the court an original de-classified document linking him to businessmen Brett and Roger Kebble.

This was after he told the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg that the document, with his signature and that of the document compiler, was at his home in Pretoria.

The document had the words "secret" scratched out.

Selebi admitted under cross-examination on Tuesday that he de-classified the document so he could show it to convicted drug trafficker Glenn Agliotti.

Information peddlers

It contained details of information peddlers, among them businessman Jugen Kogel who said the Kebbles ran businesses on behalf of Selebi.

When Selebi said he did not bring the document to court on Wednesday, Nel asked that the matter be adjourned to 14:00 to allow Selebi to drive back to Pretoria and fetch the document.

But Selebi said he could only bring the document to court on Thursday morning because of traffic problems which were made worse by the current taxi strike in Pretoria.

Judge Meyer Joffe then postponed the matter to Thursday morning after Selebi's counsel said: "There's no way he'll be back here by 14:00."

Nel said he wanted Selebi to bring the document to court because "it's of utmost importance that we know if the document exists".

Selebi is facing a count 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.
