Johannesburg - Two Hawks members linked to Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir were arrested on Tuesday morning, an official said.

"The officers are linked with Krejcir's kidnapping case only," said Hawks spokesperson Paul Ramaloko.

The warrant officers are facing charges of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and kidnapping, according to eNCA. 

The members are allegedly on Krejcir’s payroll, eNCA said.

National police spokesperson Lieutenant General Solomon Makgale could only confirm one arrest made on Johannesburg's East Rand just after 08:00.

"The 41-year-old officer was involved in the kidnapping and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm that Krejcir has been arrested for."

Makgale said the investigations were ongoing and the possibility of more arrests could not be ruled out.
