Czech fugitive appears in South African court

Court News Posted on

A South African court has ordered that a Czech fugitive arrested on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping be transported to a hospital.

Lawyers for Radovan Krejcir say he could suffer kidney failure if he doesn't get medical attention. They have also accused police of abusing Krejcir; police deny the allegation.

Krejcir appeared briefly in a court on Monday. Eyewitness News, a South African media outlet, says his application for bail has been postponed to next week.

The suspect has been linked to underworld figures in Johannesburg and local media have reported the killings of several of his associates in recent weeks.

Krejcir was sentenced in his country last year to 11 years in jail for tax fraud.
