Johannesburg - A seventh person linked to Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir's criminal investigation appeared in the Alexandra Magistrate's Court in Johannesburg on Friday, Gauteng police said.
Lt-Gen Solomon Makgale said 33-year-old Welcome Nkanyiso Mafunda was charged with conspiracy.
“This accused is alleged to have been part of a group that conspired to kill (police) Colonel Ximba and (investigator) Paul O'Sullivan earlier this year,” said Makgale.
The two men had been investigating Krejcir.
“(Mafunda) was arrested on Wednesday following investigations by the team of detectives that is tasked with the Krejcir investigation,” said Makgale.
His case was postponed to April 7 where he was scheduled to appear with his co-accused.
The first four suspects, Sboniso Miya, Zoduma Biyela, Jacob Nare and Owen Serero, were arrested on January 9.
“Subsequent to that, one female police sergeant Nandi Nkosi and Radovan Krecjir (were arrested).”
Police expect to make more arrests.
