JOHANNESBURG - National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega and crime intelligence boss Chris Ngcobo have until today to assist the High Court in Johannesburg sitting in Palm Ridge with documents relating to the arrest of Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir after being subpoenaed to do so.

The trial against Krejcir and five others came to a halt yesterday when his lawyer said she is still waiting for all the documents.

The group is accused of kidnapping and assaulting an East Rand man in June last year after an alleged drug deal went wrong.

Phiyega, Ngcobo and forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan have until today to provide documents relating to the arrest of the Czech fugitive last year.

If all the documents requested aren't provided,they will have to testify before court.

Phiyega has to clarify whether she instructed officers to arrest Krejcir and one of his co-accused last year.

O'Sullivan has to produce documents and phone records linked to his investigation and Ngcobo has to submit records from tracking devices of the crime unit's fleet of cars at the time of the East Rand man's alleged kidnapping.
