Johannesburg - Czech fugitive, Radovan Krejcir, is expected to appear in the Kempton Park Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday along with his two mistresses, who allegedly tried to help him escape from prison.

Vanessa Naidoo and Marissa Christopher have reportedly been charged on four counts of corruption and conspiracy to help a prisoner escape.

Christopher was reportedly arrested in July while she visited Krejcir at Zonderwater Prison in Pretoria.

She allegedly tried to bribe prison officials and smuggled cellphones into his cell between November 2013 and April 2016.

Her co-accused also include three prison officials with whom she allegedly conspired.

Krejcir is a Czech criminal fugitive who has been behind bars in South Africa since 2013. In August last year, the High Court in Johannesburg found him guilty of kidnapping, attempted drug dealing, and attempted murder.

He was sentenced to an effective 35 years in jail in February this year.
