Johannesburg - It is thought that Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir was tipped him off about high-level investigations into his activities by two Hawks officers who were arrested for links to him, the Times reported on Wednesday.

The policemen were arrested on Tuesday for suspected involvement in the kidnapping and assault of an East Rand businessman in June.

The Hawks members were arrested by officers from a team established by national police commissioner Riah Phiyega, the Times stated.

 It was also reported that the arrested officers’ unit commander, Colonel Francois Steyn, was being investigated.

Steyn had allegedly received a loan from a company controlled by Krejcir’s wife, Katerina.
