The case against George Louka, suspected of murdering South African strip-club owner Lolly Jackson has been postponed in Limassol, Cyprus.WATCH

Johannesburg - Murder-accused George Louka has lost a bid to appeal against an extradition order, according to a report on Thursday.

Louka, accused of murdering Teazers boss Lolly Jackson, lost the appeal in a court in Cyprus on Wednesday, reported The Star newspaper.

There is now one more legal avenue left for him to take - to ask three Supreme Court judges in Cyprus to review his court application.

If that fails, he will be extradited to South Africa.

Jackson, the owner of the Teazers franchise of strip clubs, was shot dead at a house in Edleen near OR Tambo International Airport on May 3, 2010.

Louka, also known as Luca Smith, allegedly phoned Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and confessed to killing Jackson shortly after the murder.

Louka previously told the Sunday Times that he did not believe he would be granted a fair trial.
