PostSubject: Scorpion Boss , Johannesburg finally arrested ... Bail   Wed Jan 09, 2008 7:20 pm

Nel granted bail

January 09 2008 at 05:35PM

Gauteng Scorpions boss Gerrie Nel was granted bail of R10 000 in the Pretoria magistrate's court on Wednesday.

Magistrate Peet Johnson agreed to postpone the matter to January 14 on condition that Nel would not interfere in the investigation.

His lawyer Ian Small Smith, said: "The purpose of the short postponement is to allow the prosecution to go through the docket and then make a decision."

Nel appeared in the dock wearing khaki pants and a green shirt.

The Regional Head of the Directorate of Special Operations or the Scorpions was arrested at his Pretoria home in front of his wife and children around 9pm on Tuesday night by about 20 armed policemen.

He faces two charges - according to the charge sheet - of corruption and defeating the ends of justice.

Small Smith told reporters that he had an idea of what the charges were made up of - but he was not yet clear on specifics.

He said he was extremely proud of his client.

"He handled it very well and positively because he knows he's innocent."

Police also carried out a raid on Nel's house on Wednesday. Apparently nothing was taken.

Nel had been heading the Scorpions' case against national police commissioner Jackie Selebi. - Sapa

Shock
Advocate Mokotedi Mpshe, the acting National Director
of Public Prosecutions, has expressed his shock and concern about the
arrest.

"The NPA wishes to express its serious concern about the
process followed in this matter," it said in a statement after Nel's
release.

Mpshe said the allegations against Nel first came to light in September last year.

"Several
different prosecutors were approached and were requested to apply for
an arrest warrant for advocate Nel. They all declined on the basis that
there was not sufficient evidence in the docket," Mpshe said in the
statement-----sapa

PostSubject: NPA urged to stop acting like a corner shop - De Lille   Thu Jan 10, 2008 10:29 pm

January 10 2008 at 08:27PM

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) needs to clarify whether or not it will prosecute national police commissioner Jackie Selebi, Independent Democrats president Patricia de Lille said on Thursday.

"The NPA is damaging their own image by waiting for political instructions and they must stop behaving like a corner shop," said De Lille.

De Lille said the ID had received a response from the NPA regarding the status of its case against Selebi.

"Although the letter states that the NPA has taken a decision on whether or not to prosecute Selebi and also mentions the fact that the Commissioner has served an urgent interdict on the NPA, we still do not know what the NPA decision is," said De Lille.





? She said the NPA needed to clarify its position and if it had already made a decision, it should inform the public.

"If they have a good reason for not letting the public know, then they must tell us what that reason is," said De Lille. - Sapa

PostSubject: 'NPA tried to prevent Nel's prosecution'   Thu Jan 10, 2008 10:45 pm

January 10 2008 at 07:41PM

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) made a "concerted effort" to undermine investigations into Scorpions boss Gerrie Nel and prevent his prosecution, Gauteng police said on Thursday.

In a statement, Superintendent Lungelo Dlamini said prosecutors had refused to look at evidence presented to them in September which implicated Nel in criminal activity and requested them to apply for a warrant of arrest.

Nel was arrested at his home on Tuesday night on charges including corruption and defeating the administration of justice.

"The prosecutors who were approached refused to even look at the evidence as soon as Nel's name was mentioned.

"The reasons cited ranged from the fact that Nel is a senior member of the NPA to their involvement being against NPA policy," said Dlamini.




He said the NPA had been approached to seek their involvement and co-operation.

Dlamini said investigators found the situation unacceptable and more evidence was gathered.

"[Further] evidence was gathered which indicated that there was a concerted effort from within the NPA to undermine and derail the investigation in order to prevent prosecution," he said.

Dlamini said police disputed an NPA media statement on Wednesday by acting National Director of Public Prosecutions Mokotedi Mpshe.

In the statement Mpshe said several different prosecutors were approached and were requested to apply for an arrest warrant for Nel.

"They all declined on the basis that there was not sufficient evidence in the docket," Mpshe said.

Dlamini said: "The SAPS [South African Police Service] disputes this."

He said the refusal was the subject of a separate investigation.

"The SAPS therefore had no other recourse than to obtain a warrant of arrest from an independent magistrate and to proceed," he said.

Dlamini said Mpshe had been personally presented with evidence to support the police's version of facts on Wednesday.

"The said tangible evidence explained why liaison between the SAPS investigation team and Advocate [Sibongile] Mzinyathi - appointed by Mpshe to assist - had been discontinued.

"The media statement which was later issued by the NPA was certainly not informed by the evidence presented," he said.

Dlamini said the SAPS was "convinced" it had a prima facie case against Nel.

"[The SAPS] finds it strange that, in certain quarters, the motive behind the investigation and arrest is being questioned.

"Surely no law-abiding citizen would prefer the SAPS to ignore allegations of criminal acts just because the accused is a member of the NPA responsible for various investigations."

NPA spokesperson Tlali Tlali on Thursday said the prosecuting body stood "100 percent" behind its earlier statement.

"We are not interrogating or questioning the merits. If the police have carried out a legitimate investigation and if what is contained in the docket will be able to survive the test in court, we are saying well and good.

"It is not for us to shield, to harbour or to protect anyone who has committed an act of crime," said Tlali.

He said the it could not be argued that there had been any reluctance on the part of the NPA.

"Every agreement that we made, there is correspondence to that effect. We are in a position to produce [these] communications," Tlali said.

Nel appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday and was granted R10 000 bail.

He is expected to appear in court again on Monday. - Sapa

Pressure mounts for Selebi's suspension



January 11 2008 at 08:02PM







Opposition
parties have called for the immediate suspension of National Police
Commissioner, Jackie Selebi, in light of his failure to prevent the NPA
from prosecuting him.

Selebi's urgent application was denied in the Pretoria High Court on Thursday.

Judge Nico Coetzee said the application bore no merit and it was struck off the roll.

He added that the administration of justice would be brought into disrepute if Selebi was not prosecuted.

The Freedom Front Plus (FF Plus) came out in support of the court's
decision, saying that it was a "significant victory for the Rule of
Law".

FF Plus justice spokesman Frik van Heerden said it was an "irony" that
Selebi "dared" to approach the court to prevent his own arrest and
prosecution.






This, only a few days after a task force of more than 20 police officers arrested "respected" Scorpions prosecutor Gerrie Nel.

The African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) and the Democratic
Alliance (DA) called on President Thabo Mbeki to suspend Selebi
immediately.

"This action is not only crucial in light of the high rate of crime in
South Africa and the implications for SAPS morale; the matter of
Selebi's suspension and fitness is of world interest," said ACDP
spokesperson Kenneth Meshoe.

Quote :

"It is an embarrassment with the commissioner being the present head of
Interpol and with the world spotlight being upon security in light of
2010," he said.
..... and how ...

The DA said silence on the part of both the president and minister of
safety and security in relation to Selebi's application had been
"deafening".

DA spokesperson Dianne Kohler Barnard said: "The NPA's refusal to bow
down before political heavyweights
Quote :
restores the public's faith in the
impartiality of the criminal justice system." - Sapa

Tim du Plessis: '08, Jaar van die Afkop Hoender













































Tim du Plessis

DisplayDCAd('220x120','1','');










In die Chinese kalender is 2008 die Jaar van die Rot.

In die ANC en die regering lyk dit of 2008 die Jaar van die Afkop Hoender gaan wees.

N
die Slagting in Polokwane was daar aanvanklik kommer oor die sogenaamde
twee sentrums van mag Jacob Zuma in Luthuli-huis en Thabo Mbeki in
die Uniegebou.

Dertien dae in die nuwe jaar in en die kwelling is nie twee sentrums van mag nie. Nee, dis gn sentrum van mag!

Kyk,
apartheid was n nare affre wat sy roemlose einde ryklik verdien het.
Maar nooit onder apartheid of sy ewe onregverdige voorgangers was die
landsregering in so n warboel soos wat nou onder die ANC heers nie.

Die
polisiekommissarisse in die vorige era was nie liewe omies nie. Maar
nie een van hulle het dit ooit nodig gevind om n mede-wetstoepasser in
die hof te beveg nie.

Nie eens in aparthaait South Africa
sou een wetstoepasser daarvan droom om sy bullebakke te stuur om n
senior ampsdraer van n ander instelling wat ook die wet toepas
hardhandig en magsvertonerig te arresteer nie. Reg uit Idi Amin en Bob
Mugabe se boeke.

Hoe lank kan n respektabele instelling soos Interpol volhou met n hanswors soos Jackie Selebi as sy president?

En ng pres. Mbeki ng hoofleier Zuma verroer n vinger of maak n piepgeluid. En dan s hulle hul is leiers.

Die apartheidsdiktators John Vorster en PW Botha sou tog di teater van die absurde geduld het.

Bedink
n bietjie die prentjie. In die Uniegebou sit n bedrukte Mbeki,
ingebunker met enkele politieke lyfknegte en gestroop van politieke
gesag.

Hy is nog net presidensieel wanneer hy vir die kameras hande skud met ho buitelandse besoekers.

In
Luthuli-huis sit Zuma, vrolik n verlede Saterdag se bruilof, omring
deur opgewerkte luitenante, maar essensieel verlam weens die hangende
hofsaak.

Dit lyk of hy huiwer om leierskap te neem omdat hy vermoed hy is moreel, sal ons maar s, gekniehalter.

Nou, u moet asseblief nie mismoedig raak oor di treurige toestand nie. Inteendeel.

Want in die Jaar van die Afkop Hoender gaan Suid-Afrika se gevaarlikste politieke mites vernietig word. Die proses het begin.

Mites
soos dat net die ANC Suid-Afrika kan red of regeer. Dat die ANC die een
of ander misterieuse impuls het wat hom op kritieke tydstipte altyd
die regte ding sal laat doen.

Of dat die ANC moreel verhewe is en in goeie trou vergeefbare foute maak.

Of dat die ANC n historiese reg of roeping het om die leidende krag in elke sfeer van die Suid-Afrikaanse samelewing te wees.

Die bloedlating te Polokwane en die huidige gekkespul wys die ANC is niks van di mites wat hy oor homself verkondig nie.

Hy is net nog n politieke party, soos al die ander en soos die kerkmense sal s geneig tot alle kwaad.

Wat
nou gebeur, is op n agterstevoor manier gesond vir SA se politieke
kultuur. n Politieke party mag nooit soos n religie wees met heiliges
as leiers wat biddend benader moet word nie.

Die
Inligtingskandaal en ander regeerskandes het duisende goeie Afrikaners
destyds genees van hul kinderlik naewe geloof in die ou Nasionale
Party. Wat nou gebeur in die ANC, kan dieselfde doen vir swart
Suid-Afrikaners.

En hulle help om mettertyd alternatiewe vir die ANC raak te sien.

Die
wonderlike ding van Suid-Afrika is dat die land voortbeur en aan die
gang bly terwyl sy regerende partye ploeter. Daar is n innerlike
veerkrag en n momentrum wat van ver kom. Soos Suid-Afrika die NP
oorleef het, sal hy die ook die ANC oorleef.

Algaande kom
ons nader aan die kruks van die saak: goeie, doeltreffende regering.
Soos die Afrikaners later nie meer die Engelse en die Eeu van Onreg vir
hul regeerflaters kon blameer nie, so raak dit nou byna uurliks vir die
ANC moeiliker om apartheid en kolonialisme die skuld te gee. Wonderlik.

2008 gaan swaar wees vir die ANC. Maar nie vir die land nie.
