Cape Town – Czech businessman and convicted criminal, Radovan Krejcir, has survived an attempt on his life outside his Bedfordview office, EWN reported on Wednesday.

Several shots from a red Volkswagen Polo were reportedly fired at Krejcir while he parked his black car outside his office near Eastgate, Johannesburg.

A remote-control-triggered gun with twelve barrels was used to shoot at Krejcir, the Czech told EWN’s Mandy Wiener.

The Polo burst into flames after the shooting.

Krejcir is currently fighting extradition to the Czech Republic after being sentenced in absentia last year of money-laundering.

The shooting is reportedly linked to turf battles. Police are investigating.
