Court rules against Krejcir – report

An attempt by Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir to declare sections of a Sars affidavit inadmissible was dismissed by the High Court in Pretoria.

The court reportedly ruled that the application was premature, The Star reported on Wednesday.

Krejcir’s legal team had applied to have large portions of the SA Revenue Services case against him deemed admissible.

This was meant to prevent a preservation order that would allow Sars to seize all of Krejcir’s assets and those linked to him.

The preservation order would be argued in court on May 22.

The affidavit played a key factor in Krejcir’s new attempts to receive bail for the criminal case against him at the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court.

Krejcir was arrested in November last year and charged with kidnapping and attempted murder.

The newspaper also reported that Krejcir would apply at the high court on Friday for a transfer from his prison cell in Pretoria to a medical facility.
