Lolly 'killer' case postponed

2012-04-09 16:28

Johannesburg - Strip club boss Lolly Jackson's alleged killer George Luca, who is in custody in Cyprus, appeared in court on Monday and the matter was postponed, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.

Spokesperson Mthunzi Mhaga said the matter was postponed to April 23, as the extradition application had not yet reached Cyprus officials.

The NPA started extradition proceedings before Luca's arrest in March.

Last week Mhaga said the extradition application was submitted even before Luca's arrest.

He said the NPA had opted for the European submission route because South Africa does not have a bilateral extradition treaty with Cyprus.

In addition to the 2010 murder of Jackson, the owner of the Teazers strip club franchise, Luca was wanted for theft, possession of suspected stolen property and fraud.

Luca allegedly phoned Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and confessed to killing Jackson shortly after the murder.

He told the Sunday Times in a recent interview that he wanted to talk to the SAPS, but doubted whether he would get a fair trial.

      Our country is run by a corrupt rapist. South Africa has become the all boys club for international criminals.

    They should extradite him to South Africa. When he is hear he should get a pardon on ONE condition, that he sends Malema to space.

    He must not come back here, we have enough of his kind in our country, he will be just lost somewhere in the system. He must be taken to his country of birth, Georgia is it, maybe they'll give him a death penalty.
