Former Springbok Guy Kebble has angrily dismissed claims by the man arrested for the murder of his businessman brother, Brett Kebble, that the killing was an "assisted suicide".

Murder accused Glenn Agliotti was granted bail of R500 000 in the Johannesburg magistrate's court on Wednesday.

In an affidavit submitted to support his bail application, Agliotti said the murder of mining magnate Kebble was an "assisted suicide".

Kebble initially planned to drug his pilot, causing his plane to crash but later opted for a hijacking, Agliotti's lawyer Lawrence Hodes read from the document.

Magistrate Chris Eksteen said: "The court is satisfied that by way of evidence tendered through the affidavit, sufficient exceptional circumstances exist to grant bail".

According to reports, Guy Kebble responded by calling Agliotti's claims "bulls**t", saying he did not for a moment believe this version of events of how his brother died.

It was his murderers' Plan B after initially hoping the murder would be swept under the carpet. He also said Agliotti was the first "to give me a hug and a kiss after Brett's murder. He even promised to help find Brett's murderers. It is worse than betrayal. It was not assisted suicide".

Agliotti has been placed under 24-hour house arrest and can only leave his R6,5-million Bryanston, Johannesburg home with the written permission of either the investigating officer or Scorpions advocate Gerrie Nel. He also had to hand in his passport. The State did not oppose the application.
