It’s now glaring that private investigator Paul O’Sullivan’s case is moving farther than he anticipated. According to reports, the controversial private investigator was apprehended by the Hawks last month on his way to “expose the Zupta-led regime”.
The forensic consultant was caught at OR Tambo International Airport where he was handcuffed and arrested in front of his children while the family was about to board a plane to London.
Confirming his arrest at that time, Investigator Mike Bolhuis said O’Sullivan was arrested by the Hawks for allegedly contravening the Immigration Act.
O’Sullivan, who was found in possession of multiple passports thereafter asserted that his arrest was planned, and that it followed an email he had sent to The Star two weeks ago threatening to expose the so-called “Zupta” faction allegedly influencing the country.
The Star reported at that time, that the controversial investigator made a threat two weeks before his arrest via mails. And in one of his mails, he said: “I have just come from a top-secret meeting and an amount of R20 million has now been pledged, to be used to stop the Zupta crooks (including criminalized SAA/NPA/Hawks/SAPS) in their tracks.”
“Stop me if you can,” he added.
Meanwhile, Paul O’Sullivan’s case has been postponed to next Monday after he appeared in the Kempton Park Magistrates court on Friday May 6.
He is also currently out on R20 000 bail and was mandated to report to the Sandton police station daily. In addition, he was banned from been within 5kilo-meters of any international airport.
Paul O’Sullivan Slams Foes
Meanwhile, the frustrated private investigator has alleged that he is being punished for exposing alleged corrupt police officers. He also demanded that his bail conditions be relaxed so that he can continue with his life.
“I brought an application to the bail conditions. The state imposed ridiculous bail conditions. Murderers don’t have bail conditions like those that have been imposed on me.
The effect of those bail conditions is to stop me from continuing with my life, the people that have put me in court they are the criminals and they are the ones I will send to prison,” O’Sullivan said after a brief appearance at the Kempton Park Magistrate’s Court on Friday.
