Agliotti auction nets R29K

An auction of possessions belonging to convicted drug dealer and murder-accused Glenn Agliotti netted about R29 000 today, the office of the sheriff in Brits in North West said.

An official in the sheriff’s office, who did not want to be named, said Agliotti’s possessions were seized from a furnished property he was renting, adding that there wasn’t much to take from the property because most of the furniture belonged to the landlord.

The auctioned goods included two couches, a fridge, washing machine and tumble dryer, a wrist watch, a grandfather clock and a model ship.

The official said the goods were sold for “about R29 000”.

The Mail and Guardian newspaper reported today that two execution judgments were obtained against Agliotti by the South African Revenue Service (Sars) in the Gauteng North High Court in July.

The judgments were for R60.76 million and R17 million.

Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay told Sapa last month that charges of tax fraud and tax evasion had been brought against Agliotti.

Talk Radio 702 reported today that Sars executed the judgments this week and that several items were seized from the property at Pecanwood Golf Estate in Hartbeespoort, North West.

Agliotti, who pleaded guilty to drug dealing in 2007, is the main accused in the murder case of mining magnate Brett Kebble.

Kebble was gunned down in an alleged assisted suicide in September 2005.

Sars pounced on Agliotti at the conclusion of the corruption trial of former national police commissioner Jackie Selebi.

In that case, Judge Meyer Joffe of the Gauteng South High Court, denied Agliotti, who was the state’s main witness, indemnity from prosecution.
