Bail hearing for Krejcir's 'hitmen'
Two suspects accused of conspiring to murder Krejcir investigators will learn their fate today.
JOHANNESBURG - Judgment is expected to be handed down today in the bail application of two of the five people accused of attempting to murder investigators on the Radovan Krejcir case.
One of the accused, 34 year-old police sergeant Nandi Nkosi, is employed by the police's Crime Intelligence Unit.
During Nkosi's arrest last month, police found nine cellphones in her possession and it's suspected she may have been providing software to track down the investigators.
Early last week, the lawyer representing one of the women accused of conspiring to murder the officers, Zondiswa Biyela, said his client had been wrongfully implicated.
In a written affidavit in the Alexandra Magistrates Court, it was argued that there was insufficient evidence to convict her.
But the state disagreed.
Her lawyer Titswa Modise said his client was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time.
The warrant officer arrested appeared in the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court, where his case was postponed to later this month.
The police's Solomon Makgale said, "We are very pleased with the work that the investigating team is doing on this matter. In fact, we have been looking for this police officer for a while now. He was not at work so the minute he arrived police went to the offices and apprehended him."
