"We're now seeing the last kicks of a dying horse" - O'Sullivan

Fraud examiner Paul O'Sullivan called into Breakfast with Xolani to say that he hopes the people of the country are watching.

This is after he was arrested by police at 9pm last night, despite presenting his court order which entitles him to 48-hours notice prior to an arrest.

The SAPS arresting officer ignored his court order, but when Judge Francis Legodi pointed out that it was legitimate and the court adjourned, SAPS council returned to say his client had had a change of heart and agreed to release O’ Sullivan.

O' Sullivan was visiting his attorney. Willie Spies, in Centurion when he was boxed in by 10 police vehicles, arrested and taken to the Kameeldrift police station.

We're now seeing the last kicks of a dying horse. What these people are doing is outrageous. we've now discovered that the complainant of these trumped-up charges against myself and my lawyer is a Major General in the North West province by the name of Mabula.

Paul O Sullivan, fraud examiner

O'Sullivan explained that Mabula is "coincidentally" the same person who arrested Gerrie Nel (the Jackie Selebi case) ... and General Booysen in KZN.

He's obviously the go-to-guy for these sort of issues.

EWN's Barry Bateman spoke to Xolani Gwala, explaining the events of last night, where O Sullivan's court order was unlawfully initially ignored.

Judge Francis Legodi said: "But it's still a court order, it doesn't matter what you think...." The council asked for a quick break, we returned minutes later and suddenly the police said: "Well, we've agreed to release O' Sullivan." Well it is a concession that in fact they ignored this court order.
