Police Minister Bheki Cele fingered at state capture commission of inquiry
The state capture commission on Monday heard from Crime Intelligence officer Dhanajaya Naidoo's testimony that he believed Minister of Police Bheki Cele was bribed to protect corruption-accused intelligence officer Solomon Lazarus.
Naidoo, who is in witness protection, told the commission of a meeting which took place in 2009 at the house of businessman Panganathan "Timmy" Marimuthu.
