LIMASSOL - Lolly Jackson murder accused George Louka's lawyer has reportedly lodged an extradition appeal in the Cyprus supreme court on Tuesday.

Louka fled South African in 2010, shortly after the strip club king was murdered at a house near OR Tambo International Airport.

His extradition appeal could take up to five months to complete.

Earlier in the case, Louka's defence lawyer told the court they would appeal and that he has the right to another hearing and if the appeal fails.

In June, a Cyprus judge ruled that Louka could be extradited to South Africa to face murder charges.

Louka has been held in prison since his arrest in Limassol on March 20, after being on the run for two years.

In April, his defence team requested he be released, but the judge refused based on the seriousness of the allegations against him.
