Hellenic owner Dumisani Ndlovu has held a meeting with the police, but refuted claims that he intimidated a referee involved in the match-fixing scandal that has rocked South African football.
Ndlovu, who is serving a three year ban from football, met with police investigators on Monday after a warrant of arrest had been issued for the former Premier United boss.
Reports claimed the Benoni businessman was in hiding, but he claims to have been working in Benoni this weekend.
"On Saturday I was having my hair cut at the East Rand Mall," said Ndlovu. "I have a business in Benoni, where I was helping with the renovations at the weekend, a house in Bedfordview and my parents have a farm near Daveyton.
"They could have found me at one of these three places. I am a well-known somebody, so I am not difficult to find. They could have just asked around."
Police spokesperson Sally de Beer confirmed that Ndlovu and his lawyer had a meeting with investigators.
Meanwhile, eight of the nine match officials arrested in connection with the soccer corruption and match-fixing scandals, appeared in the Randburg Magistrates Court on Monday, with the ninth official expected to appear on Tuesday. He did not appear with the others because he had not yet been charged.
The eight who appeared on Monday are all First Division officials. They were granted R1 000 bail each. Six of them will appear again on July 27 and the other two - who appeared together - will appear on July 19.
The eight are Patrick Banda, Justice Dywili, Mzwandile Flathela, all from Kimberley, Reuben Kgatle from Alexandra, Jonas Mokonyane from Mokopane in Limpopo, Michael Sikwe from Soweto, Patrick Phandilwe and Chris Choane from Bloemfontein.
