Hlophe’s legal counselor Barnabas Xulu said his customer accepts the nation’s top legal official has been impacted by the reports of “counterfeit” claims of a death plot against Goliath.

Judges Hlophe and Goliath have been engaged with an open altercation that has been alluded to the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).

Hlophe has even held up a protest of gross legal wrongdoing against Mogoeng, charging that he dealt with Goliath’s objection in a one-sided way and the way that he (Mogoeng) settled a grievance in which he was possibly an observer to the claims.

Xulu said Hlophe “requires a legitimate examination concerning how these objections have been settled”.

Hlophe responded indignantly to claims that he plotted to murder Goliath and depicted the charges as “disparaging, untruthful, malevolent and conscious falsehoods”.

Xulu said his customer was uninformed that such contemptible, horrifying and bogus charges had been made and spilled to the media and that they were pointed toward assembling shock by executing dangerous lies about him.

He has never met or addressed any of the people alluded to in the report, either face to face or by any intermediary anyplace,” Xulu said.

He proceeded: “Basically, the charges that Judge President Hlophe is associated with any crimes, including the employing of professional killers to slaughter the Deputy Judge President are bogus”.
