Johannesburg - A seventh person linked to Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir's criminal investigation appeared in the Alexandra Magistrate's Court in Johannesburg on Friday, Gauteng police said.

Lieutenant General Solomon Makgale said 33-year-old Welcome Nkanyiso Mafunda was charged with conspiracy.

"This accused is alleged to have been part of a group that conspired to kill [police] Colonel Ximba and [investigator] Paul O'Sullivan earlier this year," said Makgale.

The two men had been investigating Krejcir.

"[Mafunda] was arrested on Wednesday following investigations by the team of detectives that is tasked with the Krejcir investigation," said Makgale.

His case was postponed to 7 April where he was scheduled to appear with his co-accused.

The first four suspects, Sboniso Miya, Zoduma Biyela, Jacob Nare and Owen Serero, were arrested on 9 January.

"Subsequent to that, one female police sergeant Nandi Nkosi and Radovan Krecjir [were arrested]."

Police expect to make more arrests.
