Krejcir appears in court

2011-03-28 11:05

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.

Protection

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.

Krejcir's wife, Katerina and son Denis were at the court for Krejcir's appearance.

The 42-year-old handed himself over to police on Friday, after being on the run.

His fraud charges relate to the R4.5m claim he allegedly made to an insurance company, after managing to obtain medical papers stating he had cancer.

The police said they also wanted to question him about the death of businessman Beeka.

Beeka was at the top of the list, allegedly found in Krejcir's Bedfordview home.

    why not you just send him back to Czechoslovakia where he escaped from lawful custody? this is now a national security issue whereby a figutive leaves endless body count and yet he is still here? send him back beacuse he even arrived in SA using a false passport. why delay and waste tax payers money on this guy?

      Lucky9 - 2011-03-28 11:46

      I fully agree, why waste all this money, send him packing.

      IandI - 2011-03-28 11:46

      Since Czechoslovakia split into 2 republics years ago, our "intelligence services" probably don't know how to check if the guy is Czech or Slovakian..hehe

      I HOPE THIS LOW LIFE SON OF A BITCH GETS A RIGHT ROYAL ASS ROGERING FROM SOME BIG WELL HUNG GANGSTER SO HE CAN FEEL THE PAIN OF THE VICTIOMS FAMILIES!!

      Sinjoku - 2011-03-28 12:12

      Well in my view I see him getting off easy as these charges relate to fraud. Not murder. He is going to get off lightly. This is a joke. Send the rubbish back to supplier.

    Jirri. The only reason people go to court is to be present for cases to be postponed. No wonder bail is set so low otherwise people will serve life sentences while awaiting trial. In the case of this rubbish, hope no bail is granted.

    Anyone willing to produce/direct the Godfather IV? The script has already been written for you, here is RSA! Eat you heart out Mario Puzo(RIP).

  • joy.termorshuizen - 2011-03-28 11:27

    I would like to know the names of the policeman this filth has in his pocket?? This is why the crooks of the entire world feel that they can congregate here, because its cheap to buy protection!

      GT - 2011-03-28 12:40

      I agree - consider that they gave the killers of Kebble a free ticket for terrible evidence, they should give this guy a ticket out if he names the corrupt cops that have helped him.

  • Bluemas - 2011-03-28 11:32

    DA is quite about this guy & his relationship with our top cops...maybe he's financing godZille's botox treatment!

      Daniel - 2011-03-28 12:17

      You need a LOT more money than that to finance Dilly Zillies botox !!

  • exocist - 2011-03-28 11:49

    the other day i read of two guys raping and killing a mother and her baby the next day they were out on bail, why cant this guy get bail so he can get some street justice? less tax for us to pay for the parasite

  • Venessa Naidoo - 2011-03-28 12:01

    Why say this about him when our tax money ia being wasted by the corrupt politicians in our country. With people like Malema. If anythng this man gave plenty of people worek in SA. Which is something our own people fail to provide. His money generated money however way he was getting it into this country. Talk about body counts when we have sick people that live in SA serial Rapist that rape babies so they wont get aids, cyril was no saint himself. the govt are up in arms cause they used him to do all his dirty work....

      giuliano - 2011-03-28 12:25

      i think the people that were taken out probably deserved to be taken out, the more trash that is eliminated the better..next is the turn of the corrupt so called cops.

      Jullusmalema - 2011-03-28 12:38

      write in hindu, maybe we will understand Naidoo

  • Craig Slatter - 2011-03-28 12:03

    That oke is up to no good in our country! Send him packing back to cech and let their law authorities deal with him!

  • Slapper - 2011-03-28 12:08

    This Low-Life will already be doing deals. If he found it possible to buy his way out, in Czechoslovakia, then he will probably be able to buy his own Prison here, from the corrupt mob that allowed him to stay here in the first place.

  • Amelam - 2011-03-28 12:12

    This thug will not be deported. He has obviously greased all the right palms already. Don't forget that this is a country where the President's finacial adviser has been paroled as terminally ill for pining for his golf clubs.

  • Daniel - 2011-03-28 12:17

    PUT THE CZECH IN THE MAIL !!

  • Muishond - 2011-03-28 12:26

    I would not be surprised if there's a remote connection between him and our favourite Prez Zumatello and/or Top Cop Selebi.

  • gav.cowell - 2011-03-28 12:52

    Shame - he seems a reasonably nice chap who has a wife and kid to support. I'm also sure that as a successful businessman he adds value to the labour market and pays above average tax. In the meantime hope the sphincter is well lubricated.

  • Venessa Naidoo - 2011-03-28 13:12

    WHAT! send him back.. and have idiots that believe having a shower after sex will not give you aids! the Cyril was known has the "underworld boss" that in itself will tell you what he was. Shaik is suppose to be dying !! so he cant spend time in prosion anymore however he can still be the director of a company! Mr Sulli!! was fired by Selebi so his as* is burning and has in it for Radovan! he is being paid by the Czech he is a RAT!! wants to take other peoples money and feeds us crap that he is so comitted to fighting crime that he uses his own money!! ya right! i wont be surprised if he is using this to build his name so he can one day run for presidant. he cannot afford the luxuries that Radovan has and still be respected.

Where are the locals now hiding in their holes....

      Bottom line - 2011-03-28 13:25

      @Venessa, sound like you have a crush on him. Not all billionairs are brilliant, some of them have obtained their money by being a fraudster, don't you think he may fall into this category seeing that he tried to steal R4.5m pretending that he had cancer.

  • Daniel - 2011-03-28 13:20

    Now that he is going to jail, maybe the male will be in the czech !!

    @Venessa Naidoo what do you want to say? Do you have any idea what you want to say? maybe you should shut up?

      Venessa Naidoo - 2011-03-28 14:17

      or maybe people like you and "botton line" people who are afraid to even have their right names on this forum should not be too quick to judge people from what they read on the news or watch on TV.. did it ever occur to you guys that i may know him thats why i stand up for him! idiots. you south africans make me sick you guys look for a cheap thrill...

      Bottom line - 2011-03-28 14:24

      @Venessa, read my commets again, why does it make you sick? Do you want us to like this guy? If you stand up for these type of people what do you expect? Do you have a point or don't you?

  • Venessa Naidoo - 2011-03-28 14:51

    when i think of how The medical aid companies and the insurance companies screw us over! that makes me sick that pay pay every month, and we pay ours taxes etc etc but there is always a catch! if he took 4.5mil of liberty life GOOD FOR HIM!!! he wqas sharp enough to do it! us citizens just complain complain complain! i personally had a pension fund with liberty and after a good few years of paying.. it was liquidated! If you follow and know radovans history on how he made his money and also no one is talking about the 60mil crown that he lent the czech govt!! and plenty of other good that he has done! people only look at the bad in people. not the good the bad is always emphasied. Cyril was a womaniser he was often seen with his Russion chic and is always is strip clubs perving over women. He killed plenty of people but everyone in SA and our govt are up in arms about it! Lolly Jackson was a sleeze bag! he abused women. How many women have lost their hubby's because of the business that lolly provided... but they want to call them decent men... dont judge Radovan we are not perfect ourselves! If you had a way to get 4.5 mill you would!

      Bottom line - 2011-03-28 15:36

      I get your point, I also sometimes feel that way, BUT, It is simply not right to steal, regardless from who or what.

      Umfubi - 2011-03-29 09:11

      Sounds to me the Hawks might like to talk to you to obtain your special insights into this case. Good job you gave your real name, that will make things easier.

  • Drucilla Dragonfly - 2011-03-29 09:22

    I really feel sorry for lawyer du Plessis. What if he isnt successful at all? Will he also be taken out in due course? I would love to see the bill of costs for the legal fees thus far or is it pro bono, after all, you can't put a price on life!

  • Venessa Naidoo - 2011-03-29 09:41

    not its not right to steal, but which politician doesnt in our country i can only think of one! Nelson Mandela... the rest are crooks, they live fancy lives, have lavish weddings and parties and at whose expense ours! they spend a vew years prison and are out again. Tell me Eugene Terrablanche was murdered assasinated BUT!!! for how long did the story run!! yes he did bad things, but it was a life that was taken at the end of the day!! but the public didnt make such a bug thing out of it did they! Im just saying that we point fingers too quickly! im no fan or follower or some physco that wantd to stalk him but we should be fair..

      Umfubi - 2011-03-29 13:21

      No matter what happens, I'm willing to bet that Eugene TerreBlanche will, at the end of the day, have occupied more newspaper space than anything your buddy can achieve.
