Lolly Jackson's death 'an accident'

2011-04-18 08:12

Johannesburg - The man accused of killing strip club owner, Lolly Jackson, called the businessman's death an "accident", The Star reported on Monday.

George Smith told the newspaper that he was, however, "not innocent of what happened that day", but said there was an explanation.

In an interview with the newspaper on Sunday, Smith was quoted as saying he did not want to talk about Jackson's death, which he called "the accident".

Smith, who claims to be living in Limassol in Greece, said he was not responsible.

A Greek national newspaper made headlines over the weekend after the Hawks said Smith had been arrested in Cyprus for attempted murder.


Hawks spokesperson, Macintosh Polela was quoted in the newspaper saying Smith was arrested in Greece and charged with attempted murder, and that he was out on bail.

He said Interpol had not been asked to assist in apprehending Smith.

Jackson, the owner of the Teazers franchise of strip clubs, was found murdered at a house in Edleen near OR Tambo International Airport on May 3, last year.

Smith allegedly phoned Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and confessed to killing Jackson shortly after the murder.

He claims he was helped out of South Africa and flew out of the country from OR Tambo International Airport.

He would not give any more details about his departure and has been missing ever since.

    Limassol is not in Greece but in Cyprus. He was either arrested in Cyprus or in Greece. 2 different countries!

    Why was interpol not called in? Are the SA police trying to cover something up?

      um, comrade mike. you see, the thing is that this comrade did not pay enough bribe money. so we had to go and collect. he still refuse to pay. so we arrest him, you see.

    Poor reporting News24, Limassol is a city in Cyprus, not Greece. They are different countries!

  • JMan - 2011-04-18 09:19

    Accident? Wasn't he shot like 8 times...?

      JOHNNYBRAVO - 2011-04-18 10:03

      his revolver went on fully automatic........[okay, before i get told a revolver cant do it, i know, its just a joke.]

  • Slapper - 2011-04-18 09:21

    Only an accident after he is cornered and wants an Agliotti/ Mikey Schultz type deal. Yeah Right. I did not condone Lollies lifestyle or Business methods, but he did not deserve this. If the Law had been doing its job in the first place, it would possibly not have happened.

  • Nutzman - 2011-04-18 15:21

    How was 15 shots an accident. Or was it one shot and Lolli got in the way 14 more times????
