Johannesburg - The man charged with allegedly killing Teazers boss Lolly Jackson is near death, according to a report. 

According to a report by eNCA, George Louka, who claims he witnessed Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir shoot Jackson, has been diagnosed with inoperable stage four lung cancer and has been hospitalised with severe breathing problems. 

Louka's lawyer Owen Blumberg is reportedly going to approach the courts to have his client released from jail if cooperation is not forthcoming from correctional service authorities so that Louka can spend his last days with his family.

"It's clear [if] you read the medical report of Dr Ernest Kenoshi, that this man [Louka] doesn't have long to live," Blumberg told the broadcaster.

"[Louka] has provided extraordinarily explosive affidavits that deal with a whole range of issues, all of which implicated Radovan Krejcir. He gives a completely plausible description of the circumstances surrounding the death of Lolly Jackson. And it beggars belief that no one's talking to him."

According to the report, Krejcir's lawyer maintain's Louka’s claims are self-serving lies.

Jackson was shot dead on the East Rand on May 3 2010.
