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.
