Agliotti won’t apologise to Kebble family

2010-11-26 09:25

Glenn Agliotti has said that he has no reason to apologise to the Kebble family following his exoneration of charges relating to mining magnate Brett Kebble’s death in 2005.

Agliotti was speaking a media conference this morning.

“I haven’t spoken to the Kebble family. I have no reason to apologise. Guy Kebble wanted nothing to do with me or discuss with me. He must not lie about how he approached me in court when I disregarded him.

“He was very derogatory and he swore and cursed at me. I will not stoop to his level if that is how he is going to approach me. I talk to Roger (Kebble sr.), but he was also fed a lot of misinformation by the Scorpions and he has built a hatred for me.”

Agliotti said he believed the whole case against him was based on a political conspiracy and an agenda on the part of the Scorpions, and that he was hoping for an enquiry into how the whole case was handled.

“I should never have been charged in the first place. I told Gerrie Nel when he arrested me that ‘you can’t arrest me on (state witness) Clinton Nassif’s statement and evidence, are you kidding me?’.”

Agliotti said that pursuing legal action against the prosecution was “high on our agenda”.

“I am considering legal action against Gerrie Nel and his team.”

Agliotti said that although he believed Kebble had a hand in his own death, Nassif should be prosecuted for the murder of Kebble.

“By his own admission, Nassif confessed to having taken part in the murder. There is evidence that he should be prosecuted and if I am needed to testify, I will do so.”

Agliotti said that he was now going to concentrate on his family.

“I just want to get my life on track. I was pulled through the mud and I am grateful to the people who stuck by me.”
