State Security Minister under fire

Former police commissioner Jackie Selebi’s corruption trial might go ahead on Monday.

State Security Ministry's petition to the Supreme Court of Appeal to overturn a decision to compel former national intelligence coordinator Barry Gilder to testify in Selebi's trial has been dismissed.

Minister Siyabonga Cwele wanted to prevent Gilder from taking the stand against Selebi.

Meanwhile, the Congress of the People has called on Cwele to disclose what he knew about his wife's alleged criminal activities and resign.

Cheryl Cwele was arrested yesterday on drug related charges.

Cope spokesperson Philip Dexter wants to know how she had slipped through the cracks as all Cabinet ministers and their immediate family are subjected to rigorous background checks.
