State’s case against Agliotti looking shaky

By Andy Rice 6 August 2010

Glen Agliotti must have been a very pleased man when he left the South Gauteng courtrooms yesterday. The cross-examination of state witness Clint Nassif by defence attorney Laurance Hodes SC went very well, as far as Agliotti is concerned. Hodes had five days in which to tear into Nassif, who repeatedly contradicted himself and refused to answer certain questions. He also walked in on his attorney Tamo Vink beating his wife with a baseball bat and whipping her with the butt of a gun before shooting her, but told the court that Vink's wife had shot herself. One hopes that the state's case does not hinge on Nassif's testimony. Read more: The Mail & Guardian and IOL
