Johannesburg - Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir and his four co-accused are expected to appear in the Palm Ridge Regional Court on Monday on charges of kidnapping, assault, and attempted murder.

Krejcir is expected to appear alongside Siboniso Miya, Sandton businessman Desai Luphondo, and two members of the Hawks, warrant officers Samuel Modise Maropeng and George Jeff Nthoroane.

Four of the men were arrested in November. Miya was arrested in January. In June last year, they allegedly kidnapped and assaulted a man whose brother, known only as "Doctor", disappeared with a 25kg shipment of tik he had been recruited to help smuggle through OR Tambo International Airport.

They are accused of keeping the man at Krejcir's Money Point business in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, for four days, and assaulting him.

On 10 January, the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg denied Krejcir leave to appeal the dismissal of his application for bail by the Palm Ridge Regional Court on 13 December.

At their last court appearance on 24 January, the court heard that Miya was assaulted and not fed while in police custody.

Miya's lawyer handed in an application for him to be moved from the Krugersdorp police station to the Johannesburg prison.

The case was postponed to allow for investigations to be concluded.
