Krejcir moved to Boksburg prison

2011-03-29 12:54

The Johannesburg Magistrates Court today ordered that Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir be removed from Leeuwkop Prison and placed in Boksburg Prison, his attorney Piet du Plessis said.

“It was a brief appearance to deal with where he would be held,” said Du Plessis.

“The magistrate yesterday ordered him to be held at Leeuwkop, but that place is only for convicted and sentenced prisoners. This morning, he was moved to Boksburg.”

The case has been postponed until April 7 for a bail application.

The National Prosecuting Authority initiated the low-key appearance because it wanted Krejcir moved.

The 42-year-old is being held on a charge of fraud, but is also being investigated in connection with a series of murders.

These include the death of underworld boss Cyril Beeka, who was shot dead in a drive-by shooting in Cape Town last week.

An alleged hitlist was found during a raid at Krejcir’s house in Bedforview last Tuesday.

On the list were the names of Beeka, security consultant Paul O’Sullivan, state prosecutor Riegal du Toit and a urologist. Beeka was allegedly at the top of the list.

The fraud charge relates to a R4.5-million claim Krejcir allegedly made to an insurance company after obtaining medical papers stating he had cancer.
