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.
