Ex-police chief pleads not guilty

October 06, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Former Police Chief Jackie Selebi, formerly a leading anti-apartheid activist, pleaded not guilty to charges of corruption at the start of his trial.

Selebi says he is the victim of a conspiracy and accuses prosecutors of corruption.

He is the latest high-profile member of the governing African National Congress to claim that state institutions are being used for political motives.

Prosecutors allege that Selebi had links to organized crime and received bribes to ignore drug trafficking.
