Radovan Krejcir’s girlfriend granted R10,000 bail
She won an appeal that claimed she was part of a conspiracy to help Krejcir escape from prison.
JOHANNESBURG - Convicted criminal Radovan Krejcir's girlfriend Marissa Christopher has been reunited with her two-year-old daughter after being released from prison on R10,000 bail.
This comes after she won an appeal that claimed she was part of a conspiracy to help Krejcir escape from prison.
She was represented by BDK Attorneys who say she should have been granted bail right from the beginning.
Krejcir and four others are charged with the 2013 murder of alleged Bedfordview drug dealer Sam Issa.
The Czech fugitive is serving a 35-year sentence on a separate conviction.
Attorney Smanga Sethene represented Christopher at the Gauteng High Court yesterday where she was granted bail.
BDK Attorneys Piet du Plessis says Christopher is under strict bail conditions, including preventing her from making contact with Krejcir.
"She will be monitored by an electronic monitoring device which has been fitted."
He says denying Christopher bail was a grave injustice to her and her two-year-old child.
"Denying Radovan Krejcir, which caused her to be treated like that, other accused in the same matter were granted bail."
Du Plessis says she was denied bail unduly because of her relation to Krejcir and not based on legal facts.
