‘Agliotti and Selebi used each other for personal gain’

2009-11-04 10:56

The state’s second witness Dianne Muller has told the South Gauteng

High Court that former top cop Jackie Selebi met with her ex-fiancé Glenn

Agliotti at least twice a month in Midrand.

Muller, a director of Maverick Masupatsela in Mount Royal office

park in Midrand, said Selebi frequented her office where he met with Agliotti to

collect money in brown envelopes.

She said Agliotti had a money counting machine at the office and he

on one occasion asked her to count R110 000 for Selebi.

“I counted the money and it was in fact R120 000 and I put the

R10 000 aside. I then put the money in a white bank bag and went to the

boardroom and gave it to Glenn,” said Muller.

She said Agliotti, who was with Selebi in the boardroom, pushed the

bank bag across the table and said: “Here is the money my china.”

She said: “I think they used each other for personal gain.”

She testified that she had a discussion with Agliotti about his

friendship with the national commissioner of police, which she thought was weird

but he told her to “mind your own business.”

“I thought it wasn’t a way to go for the national commissioner to

be paid by the likes of Glenn Agliotti,” said Muller.

She described Agliotti as an “overly generous person” who bought

clothes and gifts for Selebi and his family.

Agliotti allegedly also gave R1 000 to Selebi’s driver Captain

Wessel Jenner to buy running shoes.

She said on one occasion when Selebi had called to borrow R10 000

for his son’s birthday party, Agliotti hung up and said: “Lend my arse, I’ll

never see that money again.”

The trial continues.
