Paul O' Sullivan: Jan Venter might be in witness protection for two years

Forensic Investigator Paul O' Sullivan says Jan Venter came to him claiming he had evidence of bribes paid to him to give false evidence in testimony against Mathews Phosa.

Jan Venter, the man who has accused Deputy President David Mabuza of bribing and harassing him, is embroiled in a back and forth effort to gain a protection order against Mabuza

The lastest I've heard, and I can't confirm it because there have been other steps in the middle, the latest I've heard is that Jan Venter has been admitted into a witness protection programme for a period of two years.

We took down all the evidence from him in a form of a sworn affidavit.
