In January 2003, Paul O’Sullivan, then a board member at Airports Company South Africa, opened a criminal docket against Jackie Selebi, South Africa’s Chief of Police and global head of Interpol, after discovering that Selebi was on the payroll of the drug trafficker Glenn Agliotti. In 2010, Selebi was convicted of corruption and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Released on medical parole, he died at home in 2015 without spending a day in prison. In 2012 O'Sullivan opened a criminal docket against Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli and National Prosecuting Authority bosses, Lawrence Mrwebi and Nomgcobo Jiba. Jiba was fired, and Mrwebi and Mdluli were suspended from their positions. By 2016 O'Sullivan’s charity Forensics for Justice had opened 50 criminal dockets relating to the underworld capture of the criminal justice system and state-owned companies like South African Airways, the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa, Eskom and Transnet.
An engineer by profession, Paul O'Sullivan is one of South Africa’s leading forensic consultants.
