Gavric cases postponed in Cape Town

2012-03-20 16:02
Cape Town - The fraud and extradition cases of Serbian fugitive Dobrosav Gavric were postponed by the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Magistrate Mendy Tyulu said both cases would resume on May 4 in the same court, with Gavric remaining in custody.

The Serbian, who was dressed in a checked shirt and jeans, limped back to the cells using a cane.

He is being sought to serve a 35-year prison sentence for the murder of Serbian warlord Arkan Raznatovic in 2000.

His limp is the result of a spine wound inflicted by a shot fired by Raznatovic's bodyguard.

One case deals with extradition proceedings for his deportation back to Serbia. The second relates to fraud charges involving his entry into South Africa.

Gavric allegedly obtained a South African passport, driver's licence and firearm licence using the name Sasa Kovacevic.

His true identity was exposed after he was wounded in a drive-by shooting that claimed the life of underworld figure Cyril Beeka.

At the time of the shooting, Gavric was Beeka's chauffeur.

The Serb was arrested soon afterwards for possession of drugs, after police found cocaine in Beeka's car. This matter is pending in the Bellville Magistrate's Court.

Gavric had applied for refugee status, but it was revealed on Tuesday that there was still no outcome on this.
