O'Sullivan facing intimidation charges

Johannesburg - Three criminal cases were opened at the Bramley police station, reportedly against a prominent security consultant, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.

"Two are of intimidation and one is crimen injuria," said Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini. "We can't name the suspect as yet as he has not appeared in court."

He said three people claimed they were verbally threatened but he could not provide further details.

Eyewitness News reported that the cases were against forensic consultant Paul O'Sullivan, and were lodged on Sunday by security guards working for business tycoon Zunaid Moti.

Police had apparently arrived at a townhouse complex where O’Sullivan lives and demanded access, EWN said.

Residents said the officers rang all the buzzers and demanded access. They said the officers were intent on arresting O’Sullivan.

Moti appeared in the Brits Regional Court in mid-July on charges of armed robbery and conspiracy to commit murder. He was granted bail of R40 000.

His co-accused Carlos de Sousa, who appeared on charges of assault, armed robbery and kidnapping, was released on bail of R30 000. O'Sullivan was added as a witness in the trial.

Moti, the owner of a luxury vehicle dealership, handed himself in at the Hartbeespoort police station earlier in July and De Sousa was arrested in Johannesburg.

Moti is also the chairperson of property group Abalengani.

    O'Sullivan is a Sheepdog, negative comments here is, as per normally, from Sheep. The only time Sheep appreciates Sheepdogs, is when Wolves come knocking. We need more O'Sullivan's in this country.
