Selebi's fate put on hold for now

National police commissioner Jackie Selebi is attending the ANC conference in Polokwane - and his fate seems to have been put on ice until after the gathering.

The National Prosecuting Authority has completed its investigations into Selebi's alleged criminal activities. Their report has been handed to Justice and Constitutional Minister Brigitte Mabandla.

Her spokesman, Zolile Ngqai, yesterday said he had no idea if she had studied the dossier.

"I am not aware of any report. It's difficult to check with her because she is in Limpopo attending the ANC congress.

"Yes, I know about the request for a meeting by the NPA [with the minister], but I'm not sure if that has taken place," he said.

The NPA's acting head Mokotedi Mpshe last week said he would ask for an urgent meeting with the minister to discuss investigations into Selebi.

He made the comment after reports surfaced that Selebi was about to be arrested. The claims sent journalists scurrying to courts, Selebi's house in Water- kloof, Pretoria, and to police headquarters.

At the weekend the NPA said it had taken a decision on Selebi.

"This comes after putting in place a review process initiated by the acting National Director of Public Prosecutions, Advocate Mokotedi Mpshe into the said investigation.

The NPA said the review panel had submitted its report to Mpshe.

"After studying the report, Advocate Mpshe has made a decision in the matter."

The NPA said its decision would be publicised only after Mabandla had studied the report.
