Johannesburg - The trial of Owen Serero, linked to the attempted murder of investigators in a case against Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir, was postponed on Monday.

The matter was moved to 17 March because Serero could not be brought to court, prosecutor Penny Pillay said outside the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court.

"He is refusing to come to court. He is not responding to his name when it is called. It is difficult to find someone who does not want to be found in a full holding cell."

Pillay said he could not say why Serero was refusing to come to court because doing so would hamper investigations.

"On his next appearance he will be dragged out of the cell to court if that will be necessary."

Serero faces three charges of robbery, two of possession of illegal firearms and ammunition, three of motor vehicle theft, one of contravening traffic laws, one of interfering with an investigation and one of escaping from custody.

He was also part of a group of people arrested in connection with the attempted murder of investigators in Krejcir's case.
