Johannesburg - Czech businessman and fugitive Radovan Krejcir, who was arrested at the weekend, needs to be hospitalised immediately, a doctor has told eNCA.

He is being held on charges of kidnapping and assault with intent to grievous bodily harm of a South African man on the East Rand, said Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega. 

The doctor, who was hired by Krejcir’s defence team, told the TV news service that blood test results could prove Krejcir's claims that he was repeatedly tortured and subjected to electric shocks by the police. The doctor is believed to have conducted blood tests and a physical examination.

He told eNCA Krejcir’s body showed signs of significant muscle damage and that he was in danger of suffering renal failure and a potential heart attack.
