Johannesburg - The trial of Radovan Krecjir and four others for the 2013 slaying of Sam Issa was postponed in the High Court in Johannesburg on Friday.

Krecjir’s attorney, Cliff Alexander, said the matter had been rolled over until Tuesday after an application was brought by accused number one, Siboniso Miya.    

Miya had instructed his lawyer that he had been moved to a maximum security section of Johannesburg Prison. He said he had no clothes and no food, had got no sleep, and would not be able to follow proceedings.

Krejcir faces nine charges, along with Bulgarian Lybohir Grigorov, Mfaniseni Memela, Nkanyiso Mafunda, and Miya.

Issa was shot dead while sitting in his car at an intersection in Bedfordview on October 12, 2013. 

In August last year, the high court found Krejcir guilty of kidnapping, attempted murder, and intent to deal in drugs. That case that involved a consignment of drugs Krejcir had been trying to smuggle out of the country.
