A new witness will take the stand in the Brett Kebble murder trial in the South Gauteng High Court today, and is expected to shed more light on telephone records of those involved.
The witness is an expert from a cell phone service provider, MTN. Cell phone records have proven a vital tool in the State’s prosecution of drug lord Glenn Agliotti.
He faces murder charges for his involvement in the 2005 shooting of Kebble in Johannesburg.
Meanwhile, Judge Frans Kgomo has ruled out the use of a sworn statement made by Agliotti in his 2006 bail application.
Judge Kgomo says Agliotti was not warned by the Magistrate that the statement could be used against him.
The Judge says Agliotti may not have agreed to provide the statement if he had known this and therefore the use of the statement would not give him a fair trial.
