Johannesburg - Details behind Radovan Krejcir and his co-accused’s kidnapping and attempted murder charges were finally revealed in court, reports said on Tuesday.

According to the Times, it was stated in the Germiston Regional Court, sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court, that Krejcir ordered his Hawks co-accused to track down a man named Doctor who was used to smuggle drugs into and out of South Africa.

Doctor worked at OR Tambo International Airport’s clearance agency and was tasked with smuggling R24m in tik to Australia. But when the shipment did not make its destination, Krejcir ordered Hawks members Samuel Maropeng, Macheche Nthoroane and others to track down Doctor.

When Doctor could not be found, the accused allegedly kidnapped his brother and assaulted him with the aim of forcing him to reveal his sibling’s whereabouts.

The brother was allegedly kept captive for four days and repeatedly assaulted, the Times reported.

Krejcir allegedly poured boiling water over the brother’s head and made him phone Doctor to persuade him to hand himself over.

After being beaten and burnt, the brother was dumped in a field in Katlehong, The Star reported.
