Final arguments in Selebi trial

2010-06-07 07:58

The Johannesburg High Court is expected to hear final arguments

today in the corruption case against former top cop Jackie Selebi.

Selebi has pleaded not guilty to charges of corruption and

defeating the ends of justice. The charges relate to R1.2 million in allegedly

dodgy payments made to Selebi.

During the trial, the court heard that his friendship with

convicted drugster Glenn Agliotti was corrupt.

Selebi allegedly shared classified police information with

Agliotti, who stands accused of killing mining magnate Brett Kebble.

The trial is expected to be wrapped up by the time the soccer World

Cup starts on Friday.
