Johannesburg - Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa denied on Monday that the police had been reluctant to arrest Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir.

"Some people have been saying that the police are reluctant to arrest him and such characters," he said at a breakfast briefing in Midrand hosted by The New Age.

He said the police had been working hard to secure his arrest.

"You cannot act reckless simply because you want to arrest somebody. I want to make a point that there is nobody who will be feared by police in this country if you have committed crime, no matter how big you are, we are going to get you."

Krejcir was arrested on Friday and is expected to appear in court on Monday on assault and kidnapping charges. The assault charge is expected to be changed to an attempted murder charge.

"The apprehension of Krejcir is an example of the integrated approach within the police that if we work not to outsmart each other we are able to see results."
