Johannesburg - Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir and eight others are expected to appear in the Alexandra Magistrate's Court on Friday for alleged conspiracy to kill police colonel Nkosana "Killer" Ximba and forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan.

During their last appearance, the matter was postponed to allow the State to amend its indictment against all eight and to transfer the matter to the High Court in Johannesburg.

Krejcir, Siboniso Miya, Owen Serero, Zodumo Biyela, ex-crime intelligence Sergeant Nandi Nkosi, Welcome Nkanyiso Mafunda, Siphiwe Memela, and Mike Grigorov appeared, while Jacob Nare was not present and was expected to become a State witness once the trial began.

Prosecutor Lawrence Gcaba said the addition of a new suspect had delayed the completion of the indictment and he asked for three weeks to finalise it.

Bulgarian national Grigorov, who is believed to be Krejcir's accountant and right-hand man, was the last person to be arrested in the matter.

He was arrested in June when he reported to the Benoni police station as part of his bail conditions on a separate fraud case. He had been out on bail of R30 000.

Police said another man, the owner of a security company, had been arrested in connection with the case.

Magistrate Renier Boshoff granted the postponement despite opposition from the lawyers of the accused.
