Johannesburg - Senior members of the police will be probed by the Hawks in relation to the Krejcir case, the Mail & Guardian reported on Friday.

"A source close to the Hawks, an intelligence source and a prosecuting authority official have all confirmed that the investigation centres on former Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and the head of crime intelligence, General Richard Mdluli," the newspaper said.

Hawks spokesperson, McIntosh Polela, would not comment.

The newspaper said the probe was understood to focus on allegations that crime intelligence engaged in extensive phone tapping of Hawks members and others involved in the Radovan Krejcir investigation.

The issue of who motivated for this surveillance, who approved it and whether the information was passed on to Czech businessman Krejcir is a key focus of the investigation.

The M&G said it was alleged that the reason for the surveillance of the Hawks investigation was that the investigation was being manipulated by private forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan.

Krejcir handed himself over to the Hawks in Johannesburg during the early hours of Friday morning.

A raid on Krejcir's home on Tuesday night by the Hawks uncovered a :hit list" with four names on it. Krejcir, 42, was also facing fraud charges relating to a R4.5 million claim he allegedly made to an insurance company, after allegedly managing to obtain medical papers saying he had cancer.

Krejcir, was also being questioned on the death of underworld boss Cyril Beeka, who was gunned down in a drive by shooting in Cape Town earlier this week.
