Johannesburg - Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir and six others are expected to appear in the Alexandra Magistrate's Court in Johannesburg on Tuesday for conspiring to commit murder.

The case was postponed during the last court proceedings for further investigations.

A seventh person linked to Krejcir's criminal investigation was arrested two weeks before their court appearance.

Makgale said at the time that 33-year-old Welcome Nkanyiso Mafunda was charged with conspiracy.

The group is alleged to have been part of a group that conspired to kill police Colonel Ximba and investigator Paul O'Sullivan earlier this year.

Ximba and O'Sullivan had been investigating Krejcir.

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

Krejcir was charged with conspiracy to commit murder in March.

Subsequent to that, female police Sergeant Nandi Nkosi and Krejcir were arrested.

Kidnapping case

One of the men was also linked to the kidnapping and attempted murder case which Krejcir faces in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court.

The kidnapping case allegedly involves Krejcir, Sandton businessman Desai Luphondo, and two members of the Hawks - Warrant Officers Samuel Modise Maropeng and George Jeff Nthoroane.

They were arrested in November.

In June, 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 allegedly kept the man at Krejcir's Money Point business premises in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, for four days, and assaulted him.
