Krejcir to wait three months until next court appearance
The Czech fugitive appeared in the Kempton Park Magistrates Court on Tuesday in connection with two separate matters.
JOHANNESBURG – While Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir's lawyers have raised concern about limited access to him in prison he'll now have to wait three months before he appears in court on a number of his trials.
Krejcir appeared in the Kempton Park Magistrates Court on Tuesday in connection with two separate matters while a third was postponed in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court in his absence.
He is currently serving a 35-year sentence after he was convicted of attempted murder and kidnapping.
A thin and pale looking Krejcir was still able to resort to humour in court despite the bleakness of his situation, on Tuesday.
He even joked that he's so thin because there's no sushi in Kokstad Prison, where he's now being held.
Krejcir complained about his prison conditions and how he's been treated, saying it, “not very well.”
His extradition case and the matter involving an alleged escape plot were both postponed to April.
Heavily armed guards kept a close eye on the Czech throughout the proceedings, concerned he may still try and escape.
