Hitman’s gun to be tested for murder link

08:14 |


Notorious hitman Mikey Schultz had one of his five firearms seized by the police because it was allegedly used in a murder a few years ago. It was revealed by the Saturday Star earlier this month that Brett Kebble’s self-confessed killer had been issued five weapon licences, while his partner in crime, Nigel McGurk, was issued four. This is illegal according to the Firearms Control Act, which states that only applicants who are mentally stable and not inclined to violence can be granted firearm licences. The Star learnt through a reliable source that only four weapons had been handed over to the Sandton police station by Schultz. It was reported that he had handed over all the firearms. National police spokesman Captain Dennis Adriao confirmed that four weapons had been handed to police. He said the fifth weapon “has been in the possession of the police for some time now because it was involved in a murder investigation”. Adriao would not say what the murder investigation is or give any more details about how the licences had been issued in the first place, as well as why McGurk’s four weapons had not been handed in. “All we will say at this stage is that we are busy with an in-depth investigation into what happened,” he said. Each station has a firearm control officer, who has to hold a hearing to decide whether a firearm licence should be issued. Earlier this week, Schultz appeared in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on a charge of assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm. The complainant, businessman Ashraf Cajee, withdrew the charges, believing the investigations into the case were sloppy and he would not see justice being done. He laid charges at the same place where Schultz dealt with his firearms: the Sandton police station. Cajee laid the charge in April last year after Schultz, along with a team of friends, had allegedly attacked him at Taboo nightclub. Cajee’s attorney, Saleem Ebrahim, said his client had lost faith in the justice system because it had taken an entire year for the matter to be seen by a court, and when it did appear, the investigating officer was not there because she was on honeymoon. “In all my years as an attorney I have never known a charge of assault to take a year to appear in court.”
