Anti-Gang Unit member Ashley Tabisher who was arrested after being implicated in the racketeering case against Nafiz Modack appeared at the Blue Downs Regional Court on Tuesday.
Tabisher is accused of accepting money from Modack in exchange for information about when the police planned to raid his home.
Modack and his co-accused — Zane Kilian, Jacques Cronjé and Ashley Tabisher had all submitted their affidavits for their bail applications before the courts.
Tabisher submitted a supplementary affidavit through his attorney, Bruce Hendricks, in which he implicated a number of authorities engaging in alleged corrupt activity, including police officials and the director of public prosecutions.
“What this application will further reveal is the infighting in the police as seen lately, including serious criminal allegations being made amongst the top brass of the South African Police Services. ’’
“It is also clear from this application the blame and shame going around pertaining to the brutal killing of Kinnear, and I believe this is also why my bail is vigorously opposed, unjustly so as I have a clean record … but they need someone to blame for this rot in the SAPS,” Tabisher affidavit read.
Tabisher’s initial affidavit indicated that at all times he had been acting under the charge of his two superiors, the Western Cape AGU head Major-General André Lincoln and Captain Franklin Stone.
Tabisher has maintained that he is innocent and has denied receiving any money from Modack .
In another application, brought last week, the defence requested that certain charges against Modack, Kilian, Cronjé and Tabisher be dismissed.
Magistrate Deon van der Spuy however, struck down the application and said the charges would be put to the accused when they plead at trial.
The bail application hearing will continue on July 1 at the Blue Downs Regional Court.
