Witness clears Selebi

2009-11-06 15:35

THE third state witness and father of Glenn Agliotti’s ex-fiancé

Dianne Muller, Martin Flint could not link Jackie Selebi to the cheques made out

to initials J.S and C.O.P.

Flint, who is the financial director of Muller’s company Marverick,

said he cashed the cheques with stubs marked C.O.P, chief and JS and gave them

to Agliotti “as soon as possible.’’

He said at the time the cheques were cashed, he thought the money

was for John Stratton, an associate of Agliotti whom they worked closely


When asked by state prosecutor Gerrie Nel for whom the cheques

marker “chief’’ and C.O.P were intended, Flint replied that: “Anything is

possible, I have no personal knowledge at all.’’

On Thursday, his daughter Muller, testified that Agliotti had told

her that the initials J.S on the envelopes with money, were that of


She told the court that her father would confirm the initials on

the cheque stubs because he made out the cheques for Agliotti.

But on Friday, Flint told the court that: “I do not have any

detailed knowledge who Mr Agliotti handed money to.”

Flint also told the court that he wanted to retract his previous

statement in which he said the initials “C.O.P” stood for payments Agliotti made

to a retired policeman who had been in a car accident.

He said the prosecution had recently pointed out to him that the

dates of the cheques and the time that he remembered the policeman, a Mr

Bezuidenhout, coming to his office did not add up.

An emotional Flint told Judge Meyer Joffe that he regrets the

embarrassment that Agliotti has brought to his family.

“You live your life in a certain way and you have certain

standards; and these standards get obliterated and you are not aware of that


“I am incredibly uncomfortable and incredibly embarrassed by the

entire matter.

The case continues on Monday.
