Boxer takes stand in Agliotti trial

2010-07-26 13:00

 Boxer Michael Schultz took the stand in the murder case against Brett Kebble murder accused Glenn Agliotti in the Johannesburg High Court today.

Speaking slowly and deliberately, Schultz detailed how he met Clinton Nassif, the former head of security for slain mining magnate Kebble, and worked in his employ as a security manager.

Schultz, the first state witness, told the court about a “hit list” received from Kebble and a former director in his JCI company John Stratton.

The list included the editor of Noseweek magazine in Cape Town, as well as an editor standing in the way of Kebble obtaining a loan.

Schultz is a Section 204 witness. This meant the court could grant him indemnity from prosecution if it was happy with his testimony.

He told the court he met Agliotti during a lunch with Nassif. He understood they had business together, and with former national police chief Jackie Selebi.

Schultz, a super middleweight boxer, told the court it appeared Agliotti and Nassif were friends, as they played golf together.

Agliotti, a convicted drug dealer, was facing four charges, two of them related to the murder of mining magate Brett Kebble in September 2005.
Nassif, Schultz and two others had all turned state witnesses and would testify against Agliotti.

Schultz suffered his second successive knock-out against Zimbabwean Tineyi Maridzo earlier this month.
