Johannesburg - Cypriot George Louca, who is accused of killing Teazers boss Lolly Jackson, dismissed his lawyer during a brief appearance in the Kempton Park Magistrate's Court on Friday, the SABC reported.

His case was postponed to 26 March.

Louca is facing charges of murder, money laundering and being in possession of stolen goods.

His attorney, Jaco van Wyk, whose services Louca retained late last month, would not represent Louca anymore, the broadcaster reported.

Louca returned to South Africa last month after losing his final appeal in the Supreme Court of Cyprus, the last of several attempts to evade extradition.

He left SA after Jackson was murdered at a house in Edenglen, east of Johannesburg, on 3 May 2010.

Louca reportedly phoned Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and admitted to being present when Jackson was murdered.

Lieutenant General Solomon Makgale said at the time that the Hawks were investigating a number of other cases to which Louca could possibly be linked.

Louca previously told the Sunday Times that he did not believe he would be granted a fair trial.
