Police investigate Krejcir store bombing

Johannesburg - A manager of Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir's Money Point and a bank employee will appear in the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crime Court on Monday, the Hawks said.

"The two will be appearing on charges of fraud and possibly money laundering," Captain Paul Ramaloko said.

They were arrested on Thursday. The Money Point manager was arrested at the Money Point gold and diamond exchange office in Bedfordview on the East Rand.


On Tuesday, two people were killed in an explosion at Money Point, but the charges against the business manager and the bank worker were not related to the blast.

Ramaloko said the bank employee allegedly made an unauthorised transfer of R10m from the bank account of G4S security company.

The money was then allegedly transferred to an attorney's account before being transferred into the Money Point manager's bank account.

Ramaloko said: "We believe this is part of a bigger syndicate."

He could not disclose further details at this stage.

It was reported last week that Krejcir, who is opposing a bid by Czech authorities to have him extradited, believed the Money Point blast was an attempt on his life.

Earlier this year, a vehicle rigged with guns and operated by remote control fired on Krejcir at the same premises.

He reportedly said it was "disgusting" to suggest that he staged either of the attacks to assist with his refugee bid.
