Former Bosasa Chief Operating Officer (COO) Angelo Angrizzi has been dropping bombshell after bombshell at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
His testimony has implicated different high-profile politicians and Bosasa CEO, Gavin Watson.
However, as his statements have also incriminated himself, can his testimony be used against him in a court of law?
Associate Professor of Law at Wits University Professor James Grant says one needs to distinguish between direct evidence as opposed to indirect evidence.
If I say I stole R1 million from X, that is direct evidence against myself and that cannot be used. But if from that statement, the Hawks were to go off and check bank accounts and find independent evidence connected to the indirect evidence that the person said they did, they can use that indirect evidence against the individual.— James Grant, Associate Professor of Law at Wits University
He adds that law enforcement raids against Bosasa should have been carried out a very long time ago and this indirect evidence being given has likely been destroyed by now.
