Selebi's finances under spotlight

2010-04-28 12:09
Johannesburg - The prosecution in the Jackie Selebi corruption trial started cross-examining the former police chief on his financial affairs on Wednesday morning.

The focus in the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg was on Selebi's income, money paid towards his children and niece and nephew's education and repairs made at his Pretoria house.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel read out a list of cheques paid to educational institutions, to several companies which provided materials and to companies which had done repairs on his house.

The court heard that Selebi spent about R70 000 on house renovations in 2004 and a further R63 410 in 2005.

He said he had not extended his bond to finance the renovations.

Selebi faces a count of corruption and another of defeating the ends of justice in connection with at least R1.2m he allegedly received in return for favours.

The trial continues.
