JOHANNESBURG - One of the men Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir is accused of plotting to kill, Paul O'Sullivan welcomed a decision that the case will be taken to the High Court for trial next year.
Krejcir and seven others are accused of plotting to kill O'Sullivan and crime intelligence investigator Nkosana Killer Ximba.
Yesterday the group briefly appeared in the Alexandra Magistrates Court where the trial date was set for 13 April to the end of June 2015.
But the Czech's lawyers are not pleased with the lengthy postponement and are seeking for the date to be moved forward.
O'Sullivan is pleased that the case is making progress.
"In the meantime he sits behind bars so we should be able to neutralise his attempts to kill people which he's still doing behind bars."
Krejcir is also involved in another case in the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge involving the kidnapping of an East Rand man during a drug deal that went wrong.
Meanwhile, an investigator who was allegedly targeted by the Czech accused him of faking a heart attack to escape prison.
A few days ago, he claimed he experienced symptoms similar to a heart attack which subsequently turned out to be a false alarm.
