The man suspected of murdering Teazer’s boss Lolly Jackson is expected to apply for bail in a Cyprus court on Tuesday morning.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Mthunzi Mhaga said on Monday the NPA brought the request for extradition to South Africa through the European Convention because there was no extradition treaty between Cyprus and South Africa.
The hearing will be held in Limassol.
Security measures at the court are expected to be tight as the Greek Cypriot, who is wanted for questioning in the murder of Jackson, is linked to organised crime.
Confirmation is expected on whether Louka will fight the extradition request from South African authorities, after his arrest by local officials last week.
He fled South Africa shortly after the 2010 murder of the strip club king.
Authorities tracked down Louka, also known as George Smith, in the city of Limassol on Friday, where he was in hiding with his wife and four children.
