Agliotti in trouble with tax man

2010-08-02 07:37

Convicted drug dealer Glenn Agliotti, who is on trial for the murder of mining magnate Brett Kebble, now also faces trouble with the tax man.

Beeld reported today that charges of tax evasion and tax fraud had been brought against him.

SA Revenue Service spokesman Adrian Lackay told Sapa he could confirm the report.

“But I cannot give more information,” Lackay said.

Agliotti was the State’s main witness in its corruption case against ex-top cop Jackie Selebi, who was found guilty of corruption for receiving payments from Agliotti.

Selebi’s sentencing procedure was scheduled to continue in the High Court in Johannesburg today.

Agliotti would also be at court today, but not for the Selebi case.

The Kebble murder trial was underway and Agliotti was accused of financing the killing.
