Agliotti’s possessions go under the hammer

2010-09-17 11:17

The sheriff in the North West town of Brits started auctioning off possessions belonging to convicted drugster and murder accused Glenn Agliotti this morning.

The office of the sheriff in Brits confirmed that the auction was under way.

The Mail & Guardian newspaper reported today that two execution judgments were obtained against Agliotti by the SA Revenue Service (Sars) in the High Court in Pretoria in July.

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

Sars spokesperson Adrian Lackay told Sapa in August 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 Agliotti’s home at Pecanwood Golf Estate, Hartbeespoort.

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 2005.

Sars pounced on Agliotti at the conclusion of the corruption trial of former top cop Jackie Selebi.

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