JOHANNESBURG - Czech fugitive Radovan Krecjir's lawyers have been granted an urgent high court order compelling police to tell them where their client is being held.

Krecjir was arrested at his Bedfordview home on Friday.

He faces charges of attempted murder and kidnapping.

The order granted by a judge after midnight forces the police to allow Krejcir to exercise his right to legal representation.

His lawyers do not know where he is being held or which division of the police arrested him.

The police say they will be holding a media conference in Hatfield Pretoria this afternoon.

Police were stationed at a petrol station in unmarked vehicles down the road from Kricjir's home before his arrest.

They waited for an alert from a neighbour, who notified them once Krejcir arrived at his luxury home.

Security guards say it all happened very fast; one moment their boss was pulling over at his driveway and minutes later he was being driven away in an unmarked state vehicle.

Krejcir made headlines in recent weeks following the killings of several of his associates in Bedfordview including Veselin Laganin and Sam Issa who were shot dead in two separate incidents in October.

Today E yewitness News will hear more about his arrest.
