Mdluli 'evades' serving of papers

2012-05-16 15:15
Johannesburg - Former crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli “evaded” the serving of court papers on Tuesday by legal rights group Freedom Under Law (FUL).

FUL announced on Wednesday that two attempts by the sheriff of the South Gauteng High Court to serve papers on Mdluli had failed.

In a certified document filed by the sheriff at court, he states that he failed twice to have the documents delivered to Mdluli’s house in Boksburg, on the East Rand.

“At 16:20 I arrived at the above address and was informed by a female on the intercom that no person is to enter the premises and no documents must be accepted for any reason.

“At 19:40 once again an attempt was made at the above address and the bodyguards refused to supply their names or allow me entry to the premises.

They also refused to accept service of the documents,” the sheriff states.

FUL’s Advocate Jeremy Gauntlett told City Press the situation had since been “resolved”, but that it was “significant Mdluli had anticipated the serving of papers”.

Gauntlett said the refusal of Mdluli’s bodyguards to accept the papers “also showed his attitude towards the law”.

Mdluli is the fifth respondent in a case brought by FUL before the North Gauteng High Court, which asks the court to prevent him from performing any policing duties.

The case is scheduled to be heard on June 5.
