Johannesburg - Convicted drug dealer Glen Agliotti took a R400 000 loan from a company linked to Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir, Beeld newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Agliotti admitted to the Afrikaans daily that he had taken the R400 000 loan from Groep Twee Beleggings, the same company that also lent money to the Germiston-based head of organised crime, Colonel Francois Steyn.

Groep Twee Beleggings is owned by Krejcir's wife, Katerina.

Beeld reported that the company was mentioned in court on Monday during Agliotti's sequestration hearing. He was provisionally sequestrated in the High Court in Pretoria.

Agliotti told Beeld he and Krejcir were acquaintances and not close friends. He said the loan was a “normal business transaction” and that he had paid it off, including interest. - Sapa
