Krejcir appears in court
Johannesburg - The fraud case against Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir was
postponed in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.
The matter was postponed to April 7 for a formal bail hearing.
Krejcir's defence team asked that he be kept at the Johannesburg Central
police station until his next appearance as it was more accessible to them.
State prosecutor Riegal Du Toit, who was handling the matter, asked that Krejcir
rather be remanded in Leeukop prison as he had come into contact with two men
who were in custody for the Uwe Gemballa murder.
The magistrate ruled in favour of the State and Krejcir would stay in
Leeukop until April 7.
Du Toit arrived at the court with four policemen carrying R5 rifles.
This was part of the 24-hour protection assigned to him after his name was
found on an alleged hit list during a raid on Krejcir's house last week.
Four names were on the list. It included the names of Cyril Beeka, who was
gunned down in Cape Town last week, security consultant Paul O'Sullivan, Du
Toit and urologist Marian Tupy.
