June 27, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A court ordered South Africa's top cop to stand trial on corruption charges next year.

Jackie Selebi is accused of accepting bribes from a businessman who was convicted of drug smuggling and of trying to shield the smuggler from prosecution.

He has been on a leave of absence from the police commissioner's post since being charged in February, when he also quit as president of Interpol.
