Prosecutors have received George Louka's extradition papers in the nick of time.

Limassol Court is breaking for lunch.

Extradition papers for the man accused of killing Lolly Jackson, George Louka, arrived in Cyprus on Friday.

Louka was arrested in Limassol in March, after being on the run for two years.

South African authorities want him to be tried in South Africa here for Jackson's 2010 murder.

The prosecution is expected to request that Louka remains in custody.

A thick stack of extradition papers arrived in the hands of Cyprus prosecutors in the nick of time.

The court is currently taking a short break, after which Judge Elena Efrem will hear the case of George Louka.
