Agliotti relieved but angry

2010-11-25 16:03

Glenn Agliotti was “relieved” but still “angry” after he was found not guilty of the murder of mining magnate Brett Kebble at the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg today.

“I am relieved... justice was done, justice wasn’t only done, it was seen to be done,” he said.

“I am angry at the same time.”

Agliotti was arrested in 2006 for the slaying of the mining magnate and further charges were added earlier this year, before the trial commenced.

Judge Frans Kgomo was harsh on the prosecution and the investigators in handing down his judgment.
Agliotti said he will now spend time with his friends and family.

He does not yet know whether he will take any action against the state.

“We will have to wait and see.”

The ruling followed an application by his legal team for the case to be discharged.
