JOHANNESBURG - There has been a delay in the murder case against Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir and three others accused of killing Lebanese businessman Sam Issa.

The four accused appeared briefly in the Germiston Magistrates Court today.

Issa was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Bedfordview on 12 October 2013. He was shot more than 30 times when he stopped at a traffic light in his Audi Q7.

Earlier this year, Krejcir and his co-accused Nkanyiso Mafunda, Siboniso Miya and Simphiwe Memela were officially charged with the murder of Issa.

Issa is believed to have been gunned down a day after he was seen with Krejcir who reportedly owed him millions of rands.

All four will return to court in June on charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder and the illegal possession of firearms.

While Krejcir is currently involved in three cases before court, police say there are many other charges which may be brought against him in the future.
