George Louca, who is accused of killing Teazers boss Lolly Jackson, is expected to appear in the Kempton Park Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

Louca is facing charges of murder, money laundering and being in possession of stolen goods.

During his last apperance, Louca dismissed his lawyer Jaco van Wyk.

Louca returned to South Africa in February after losing his final appeal in the Supreme Court of Cyprus, the last of several attempts to evade extradition.

He left South Africa after Jackson was murdered at a house in Edenglen, east of Johannesburg, on May 3, 2010.

Louca reportedly phoned Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and admitted to being present when Jackson was murdered.

Lt-Gen Solomon Makgale said at the time that the Hawks were investigating a number of other cases to which Louca could possibly be linked.
