Johannesburg - A man allegedly linked to the kidnapping and attempted murder case against Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir appeared in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

The matter was postponed to 6 February for a formal bail application, police spokesperson Solomon Makgale said.

Warrant Officer Jan Mofokeng was arrested on Tuesday at the Organised Crime Unit offices in Germiston where he was stationed.

Mofokeng was the sixth man arrested in connection with Krejcir's kidnapping and attempted murder case. Siboniso Miya was the fifth.

Miya and three other men were arrested earlier this month in Rivonia, north of Johannesburg.

The four men faced charges relating to an alleged plot to shoot dead police crime intelligence officer Colonel Nkosana "Killer" Ximba and private forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan, both linked to investigations involving Krejcir.

Days after Miya's arrest, police revealed that he was also linked to the kidnapping case that led to Krejcir's arrest.

Krejcir and three other men were arrested in November for allegedly kidnapping and assaulting 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 in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, for four days, and assaulted him.
