JACKIE SELEBI - FINALLY GOING TO JAIL! – or is he?
It has taken 4 long years for the wheels of justice to turn, but counting from today this criminal (South Africa’s first politically appointed Black Police Commissioner, with zero experience in policing), has less than 48 HOURS to report to jail, after he failed to have his corruption conviction of 15 years imprisonment set aside, in a unanimous judgment, delivered by a full bench of 5 judges, handed down in Bloemfontein. This means Selebi has to be behind bars before Sunday evening – (4 Dec. 2011)… but will he?
"On all the evidence contained in 66 volumes amounting to more than 600 pages that we had to wade through in this application for appeal, we are satisfied that the high court was correct in finding that the applicant did receive payment from Agliotti," said Mthiyane - Full news report here.
FULL TEXT: Jackie Selebi judgment
I can write volumes about this scumbag crook, and while drafting this article I was wondering what other games he was going to play to attract sympathy, and to avoid spending time in the uncomfortable confines of a prison cell. I was on the verge of uploading this article to the blog, when the following report came in from news24.com:
Selebi collapses at home – lawyer
Johannesburg - Former police commissioner Jackie Selebi collapsed and could not walk after hearing that the appeal of his corruption conviction failed, his attorney said on Friday.
"He is not doing well," said Wynanda Coetzee, who was part of the team that represented him at the trial where he was convicted and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
According to eNews, an ambulance arrived at his house.
Selebi has 48 hours to report for his prison sentence after the Supreme Court of Appeal dismissed his appeal on Friday.
She said he had not taken the news well and a doctor had been summoned.
"We are very worried... he can't walk," Coetzee said.
Selebi was found to have accepted money from convicted drug trafficker Glenn Agliotti. – SAPA
My guess is Selebi has imitated a typical Schabir Shaik scenario and will probably be released on medical parole soon, … The swine!!!!
In 2007, Selebi was strongly criticised for responding to concern within the country over South Africa's rising crime rate with the comment: "What's all the fuss about crime?"
