Johannesburg – Convicted drug dealer Radovan Krejcir and his co-accused will appear in the High Court in Johannesburg on Friday for the murder of Lebanese national Sam Issa.

Krejcir, a fugitive from the Czech Republic, Siboniso Miya, Nkanyiso Mafunda‚ Siphiwe Memela and Luybomir Borislavov Grigorov were charged with Issa's shooting at an intersection in Bedfordview early on the morning of October 12, 2013.

Miya has also been accused of contacting "a person or persons" close to the State's star witness in the case.  

The State alleges that Issa was killed because he and Krejcir argued about a R500 000 cash loan Issa had made Krejcir for a bail application in another case.

Krejcir has denied any part in Issa's murder. He claimed he only knew him vaguely from clubs and restaurants, knew that he was from Lebanon and that he had no family in South Africa.

In a previous appearance, Krejcir told the court he only found out later that morning that Issa had been killed.

However, the State's investigators believed he was behind the hit, despite the fact that they could not place him at the scene.

Krejcir faces nine charges, along with co-accused.
