Johannesburg - Boksburg businessman Paul Vusi Msimango was expected to return to the stand in the South Gauteng High Court sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court on Wednesday to continue testifying in the trial of Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir and five others.

Krejcir, Desai Luphondo, Warrant Officers Samuel Modise Maropeng and George Nthoroane, Jan Lefu Mofokeng, and Siboniso Miya face charges of dealing in drugs, attempted murder, and kidnapping. They have pleaded not guilty.

They allegedly kidnapped and assaulted Bheki Lukhele after his brother, Doctor, allegedly disappeared with 25kg's of tik (crystal meth) which he was meant to help transport to Australia.

Msimango, a State witness, testified about how Lukhele was bound and beaten before Krejcir poured boiling water over his head. The young man was later left near a stadium in Katlehong.

Msimango said he was recruited by Luphondo to help locate Doctor and the missing drugs as tik was his "line of business".

He told the court he decided to tell the police what he knew in order to get his own freedom. He stands to gain indemnity from prosecution if the court finds his testimony was truthful.

Msimango has been arrested on numerous occasions and has spent time behind bars.
