As former police chief Jackie Selebi’s cross-examination enters its

fourth day today, the prosecution is expected to continue probing him on

document so that he could show it to the convicted drug trafficker.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel was questioning him on allegations made by

Nel has already examined Selebi on his relationship with Agliotti

and how he had failed to explain his relationship with the drug trafficker to

National Prosecuting Authority boss Vusi Pikoli after 2006 media reports linked

him to shady underworld characters.

Selebi has also been questioned on his links to the Kebble family.

He told the court that he had called Agliotti soon after the September 2005

murder of mining magnate Brett Kebble.

Other details covered under cross-examination related to the August

corruption and defeating the ends of justice against him dropped.

Selebi faces a count of corruption and another of defeating the

ends of justice in connection with at least R1.2?million he allegedly received

from Agliotti and others in return for favours.
