MORE claims against former chief prosecutor Bulelani Ngcuka emerged in court yesterday as convicted drug dealer Glenn Agliotti testified on the second day of the graft trial of former police commissioner Jackie Selebi.

Agliotti testified about how he met former Hyundai boss and mining businessman Billy Rautenbach in Zimbabwe for the first time.

Rautenbach had requested to meet Agliotti because he had heard that he was connected to Selebi.

A warrant of arrest had been issued against Rautenbach on tax evasion charges.

He told Agliotti he had information incriminating Ngcuka that Selebi could use.

"Billy was of the opinion that Ngcuka had abused his powers within his office to conspire against him, and secondly, Billy indicated to me that Ngcuka had tried to extort a bribe for certain favours in exchange for information," Agliotti told the court. - Sapa
