Police investigating murder attempt on Krejčír

Police investigating a murder attempt against fugitive Czech businessman Radovan Krejčír suspect the attack may be linked to the Cape Town movie industry, according to The Star newspaper. Krejčír narrowly escaped death from a battery-operated, remote-controlled automatic weapon built into a parked car. A source close to the investigation told the paper that the attack could also be linked to Krejčír’s dealings with Cape Town gangsters over territory. The source indicated that Krejčír had allegedly met with one of Cape Town’s most notorious members of the underworld in an attempt to iron out their differences. Krejčír himself has refused to comment.
