Krejcir's appeal postponed
His advocate arrived in court today saying he is not ready to proceed with the appeal.
JOHANNESBURG - Radovan Krejcir's application for leave to appeal has been adjourned, but no new date has been set.
Krejcir was sentenced to an effective 35 years behind bars for attempted murder, kidnapping and drug dealing.
Counsel for the co-accused also requested more time.
SW van der Merwe, who is representing Radovan Krejcir, was present in court today, but indicated he is not ready to proceed with the appeal against his client's conviction and sentence.
Krejcir represented himself for sentencing arguments yesterday, because he didn't have access to his lawyer.
He maintains that he has been treated unfairly by Judge Colin Lamont.
Counsel for four of Krejcir's co-accused are planning to lead more evidence.
Judge Lamont says he will need to get direction from the Deputy Judge President on a date for the matter to be heard.
Lamont says it's likely he will only be available in the first two weeks of the new court term.
Krejcir's lawyers say they're hoping to consult their client tomorrow to prepare for an application for leave to appeal his conviction and sentence.
