Cyril Beeka's driver a 'hitman'- report

2011-12-19 14:32

Cape Town - Murdered underworld boss Cyril Beeka’s driver has been arrested in connection with his murder and is allegedly a hitman from the Serbian mafia, IOL reported on Monday.

Sources told the Weekend Argus that police are investigating the possibility that one of the five bullets that hit Beeka was fired from inside the car Beeka and his driver were travelling in.

The identity of Beeka’s driver was in question. South African and Serbian authorities are working to ascertain his real identity, but he is thought to be a hitman from the Serbian mafia.

Czech fraud suspect Radovan Krejcir was thought to be involved in his murder as police found a hitlist with Beeka’s name on it when they raided Krejcir’s Johannesburg home shortly after Beeka’s murder.

Krejcir has denied any involvement in the murder.

Beeka was gunned down in Cape Town in March this year. He was linked to various criminal syndicates.

Police say a motorcyclist pulled up alongside his BMW X5 and opened fire on the vehicle.

Beeka was killed while the driver of the car survived.

    How doff do you have to be to actually write down a hit list and keep it at home?

      They just don't make hitmen like in our day. We would've eaten the list for lunch after memorising the names there-on. The kids of today...

      The arrogance of some knows no bounds. We see the evidence of the arrogance in our govt every day, what makes this thug any different. Just like our govt, he thought he could do anything with impunity, including writing down the names of people that he wanted dead. What makes this so hard to believe?

    Shows one how stupid these people are. They have to write down the names of their victims lest they forget who to hit. Imagine; " I know I'm here to kill somebody but I can't remember who....."

    I think the classic is when Clive Derby-Lewis and that Polish chap were in the lounge planning the hit on Chris Hani and the ousie was in the kitchen listening. Then the Pole does the hit travelling in DL's car with its genuine number plates. I thought at the time that they must have wanted to get caught.

    Quite a good mix: Kebble,Agliotti,Selebi,Beeka,Radovan Krejcir,Dobrosav Gavric or Kovasevic,Ivanovic,Kouremetis,Nelson Yester-Garrido,Arnabek Zhauyron. Who else? What is attracting these "businessmen" to SA. The business facilities we have in this country? Or the knowledge that our police force is dysfunctional? Or the knowledge that there are a number of government officials in this country that also profit from crime? All in the family?
