2011-12-06 12:48

Johannesburg - All documents crucial to defending fraud accused Radovan Krejcir have been obtained, the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court heard on Tuesday.

Defence attorney Eddie Claasen said two State witnesses and a third person had been subpoenaed to get certain documents, and these had been received. Their contents were not disclosed in court.

The defence said it was ready for trial from April 16 to 20 next year.

The 43-year-old Czech businessman is out on R500 000 bail.

The charge against Krejcir relates to a R4.5m claim he made to an insurance company allegedly using medical papers stating he had cancer.

His urologist Marian Tupy previously admitted to falsifying insurance documents so Krejcir could be paid out for bladder cancer.

    What a Crock. Money is the only thing that will get this crook off. The Grrenpeace guys in Durban were deported for hanging a flag off a building. This guy is a dangerous crook and a blight on South Africa, But seems to be coated in teflon and there is no question of him being deported.
