Krejčíř questioning in South Africa postponed

Authorities in the Republic of South Africa withdraw permission to allow fugitive businessman Radovan Krejčíř to be questioned by the Czech Police. State representatives and police officers were notified of the change at the last minute after arriving in the country to investigate the death of Mr Krejčíř’s father, who the police believe was kidnapped in 2002 on account of his son’s debts and murdered. Radovan Krejčíř is under prosecution in the Czech Republic for extensive property fraud and violent crime. He escaped police detention in June of 2005 and has been living in South Africa since 2007.
