Joost: investigator claims to know ‘criminals’ behind ‘very old’ sex video

2009-02-22 00:00

Johannesburg — He knows who produced the “very old” so-called Joost sex video, says Mike Bolhuis, a specialist investigator from Pretoria.

He will announce the details as soon as he has completed his investigation.

“The investigation Joost has asked me to conduct is already 80% to 90% complete and will be completed soon.”

He didn’t want to say too much for fear that it could spoil the “extremely sensitive investigation”.

“But what I can say, is that people who think the video is a big joke and a nice talking point will think twice if they realise what a criminal act those who acted in the video committed to harm Joost and his family.

“I can also confirm that the video is very old and that it was repeatedly copied. There are many copies floating around.

“People will be surprised to know how much bitterness there is in the entertainment industry,” Bolhuis said.

“Joost is now being blamed because he doesn’t want to take a voice test,” Bolhuis said, adding that he advised Van der Westhuizen against it.

“Joost is not the criminal in this case and there’s no reason why he should prove his innocence.

“It’s rather the people who produced the video and those who acted in it who owe an explanation to the public in general and Joost and Amor [Vittone, Joost’s wife] in particular.”

Bolhuis said he is still investigating those who profited from the video.

“They are all as criminally liable as the producers.”

People easily forget how easy it is to confuse one person with another, he said.

“Just think about films. Famous actors seldom play the lead in all the scenes in action films.

Doubles are used, but at the end of the film no one who watched the film would be able to say in which scenes the double instead of the real actor was used.

“At this stage we as investigators know virtually everything there is to know about this video.

Now we’re waiting for everyone to say what they want to say and after that we will be able to see just how well all the pieces fit together.

“Because as an investigator I’m not going to spread gossip, I will be revealing the facts, not rumours, once they are all available.”
