Jackie Selebi is still receiving state pension
31 May 2012
Former top cop Jackie Selebi is still receiving state pension and medical aid.
Police minister Nathi Mthethwa confirmed that after the former police commissioner’s contract expired in August 2009, it was allowed to lapse over instead of him being honourably discharged.
Selebi’s appeal against a corruption conviction was dismissed by the Supreme Court of Appeals last year.
He was sentenced to 15 years in prison and has been in and out of hospital with kidney problems.
