Agliotti’s legal team applies for a discharge of charges

2010-10-26 14:15

There was not enough evidence to secure a conviction of Brett Kebble murder accused Glenn Agliotti, the High Court in Johannesburg heard today.

Advocate Laurance Hodes applied for a discharge of the four charges against his client. The state opposed the application.

Argument will be heard on November 5.

This emerged after the state closed its case today, wrapping up with the testimony of investigating officer Colonel Pieter Van Heerden.

Agliotti is facing four charges – two counts of conspiracy to commit murder, one count of attempted murder and one murder charge.

The murder charge and one conspiracy count relate to the September 2005 shooting of Kebble in Melrose, north of Johannesburg.

Agliotti is further accused of conspiring to kill Alan Gray auditor Stephen Mildenhall, Jean Daniel Nortier, Mark Bristow and Mark Wellesley-Woods.

The attempted murder charge relates to the shooting of Mildenhall in Cape Town in August 2005.
