JOHANNESBURG - Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir has detailed how controversial Crime Intelligence Colonel, Nkosana "Killer" Ximba, allegedly tortured him with a tazer and plastic bag following his arrest.
Krejcir's bail application is currently being heard in the Germiston Regional Court sitting at Palm Ridge.

There's a massive police presence with heavily armed officers flooding the courthouse and media initially not being granted access.
But cameras have now been allowed in.
Krejcir's bail application affidavit has detailed allegations of abuse of power by the police who arrested him.
He has named Ximba, a close associate of Richard Mdluli, as the officer responsible for his torture.
He has offered to pay bail and cooperate with the police, insisting he is not a flight risk and that he wants to remain in the country.
