JOHANNESBURG - Police have confirmed another suspect with links to Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir has been arrested.

The owner of a private security company was detained in Durban last night.

Authorities believe the man provided Krecjir's alleged hitmen with GPS coordinates of victims' locations.

This brings to nine the number of suspects arrested for an alleged plot to kill forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan and crime intelligence officer Nkosana 'Killer' Ximba.

Meanwhile, the case against eight suspects, including Krejcir, has been postponed in the Alexandra Magistrates Court.

The six men and two women appeared alongside each other in the small court room packed with police officers and a few family members.

The state asked for a postponement because it needs to confirm whether additional charges should be laid against some of the accused.

The defence argued there have already been many delays in the matter and postponing it would prejudice its clients.

The magistrate instructed the state to have the indictment ready on 4 July when the accused will return to the dock.
