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

The matter was postponed in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court to 10 March for further evidence.

Serero told Magistrate Simon Radasi he had still not received medication for the pain in his leg.

"I am not getting medication for the pain in my leg and I am also not allowed visitors. I also request to be moved to a correctional facility because I am not allowed to bath at Pretoria Central police station."

Radasi told Serero to raise the matter with his lawyer.

Penny Pillay, for the State, told the court she needed to complete pending investigations and asked the court to postpone the matter to 10 March. 

Pillay said Serero could not be moved to a correctional facility because a court order stated he had to be detained at Pretoria Central police station.

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 the investigators of Krejcir's case.
