Demi Jackson: Someone must pay for killing Lolly
After George Louca's death, Demi doesn’t believe anybody will be held responsible for her husband’s murder.
JOHANNESBURG - Lolly Jackson's wife Demi says she wants authorities to ensure someone is held accountable for his murder.
The strip club boss was gunned down in 2010.
The man accused of killing him, George Louca, died on Monday.
Louca passed away at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital following a battle with stage four lung cancer.
He was in police custody at the time.
Louca, a Cypriot national extradited to South Africa to stand trial for Jackson's murder, claimed Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir actually shot the strip club boss.

Jackson's widow said she doesn't believe anybody will be held responsible for her husband's death.
"Now that George is dead, I don't think so. But I would like authorities to do something because there's a family who cared very much for Lolly, and still does. And we want to find out what happened and who killed him, and that person must be liable for it."
She said she wants justice to be done and for the truth to eventually emerge.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says Louca's testimony in the High Court last month during which he accused Krejcir of Jackson's murder, cannot be used to determine whether someone else needs to be held accountable for the strip club boss's death.
Krejcir yesterday told Eyewitness News he wants to clear his name and will be asking the NPA for an inquest into Jackson's murder, to prove his innocence.

NPA spokesperson Velekhaya Mgobhozi said they're still waiting for the defence team to hand over the promised sworn affidavit in which Louca claims Krejcir killed Jackson in 2010.
"We want the sworn, original affidavit from the accused, which was never forthcoming on the very same day. We don't have an affidavit from the defence."
He said the statement made by Louca in court during his application to be released on medical parole is not usable.
"They knew the exact procedures to be followed. They had to compile an affidavit, sign it, commit it, and give it to the NPA. If we don't have that we can't help, we can't listen. It has to be a sworn statement."
Louca's lawyer Owen Bloomberg however said this is not the end of the Jackson murder case and hopes the truth will still come out.
