Radovan Krejcir not ill – police

2014-07-02 16:20

Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir has not suffered any new health setbacks, police said.

Lieutenant-General Solomon Makgale denied reports today that Krejcir had been admitted to a prison medical facility because he had suffered a heart attack.

“Krejcir has always been in the prison’s medical facility,” Makgale said.

“A court order was issued during his bail application which said he must be detained at a medical facility. When he is there, he receives medical check-ups,” Makgale said.

The high court in Johannesburg issued the order in November after Krejcir’s doctor testified he could suffer renal failure if he did not get treatment.

Earlier, Krejcir’s lawyer Piet du Plessis said Krejcir fell ill on Monday but it was unclear what ailment he had suffered from.

The Star newspaper reported it was suspected that Krejcir had a heart attack.

Krejcir is accused, with seven others, of conspiring to kill police officer Colonel Nkosana “Killer” Ximba and forensic investigator Paul O’Sullivan in a case before the Alexandra Magistrates’ Court.

In another case, Krejcir and his co-accused face charges of kidnapping, attempted murder and dealing in drugs.

They allegedly kidnapped Bheki Lukhele from his Katlehong home in June last year to get him to reveal the whereabouts of his brother, Doctor.

Doctor, who worked for a cargo company at OR Tambo International Airport, allegedly disappeared with drugs worth millions of rands which he had been tasked to help smuggle to Australia, allegedly for Krejcir.

This matter is expected to resume in the high court in Johannesburg, sitting in Palm Ridge, on July 21.
