JOHANNESBURG - The case against the man accused of killing strip club boss Lolly Jackson has been postponed to March.

George Louca, who was extradited from Cyprus, appeared briefly in the Kempton Park Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning.

He is facing a charge of murder as well as charges of money laundering and theft from previous cases.

Louca will remain in custody until 7 March to allow him more time to consult with his legal team.

Louca has only been back in the country for only over a week, but the defence says his safety is a concern and therefore his location will remain secret.

Wearing jeans and a shirt, Louca faced dozens of photographers after the court granted an application to the media to film proceedings.

Special task force members swept through the courtroom before Louca's appearance.

The National Prosecuting Authority insists there is no plea bargain on the table at this stage and Louca will have to stand trial for murder.
