Johannesburg – Convicted drug dealer Radovan Krejcir and four others accused of killing Lebanese national Sam Issa are expected back in the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg on Thursday.

Krejcir and his co-accused appeared in court on Tuesday. Their case was postponed to Thursday, National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Phindi Louw said.

Louw said Krejcir was still arranging his legal representation.

Issa was gunned down in his car at an intersection outside the Bedford Centre mall in Bedfordview around 06:00 on Saturday, October 12, 2013. Police found at least 30 spent cartridges on the scene.

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

Constant changes in legal representation and outstanding evidence documents had led to regular postponements in the matter since April.

The State alleges Issa was killed because he and Krejcir argued over R500 000 which Issa had lent Krejcir for a bail application in another case.

Krejcir claims his mother had sent him bail money and that Issa owed him R500 000.
