Johannesburg - A police officer linked to the kidnapping and attempted murder case against Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir has been granted bail, the NPA said.

Warrant Officer Jan Mofokeng was granted R5000 bail by the Palm Ridge Regional Court, said regional National Prosecuting Authority spokeswoman Phindi Louw. Mofokeng would be back in court on February 24.

In Mofokeng's previous court appearance, prosecutor Lethabo Mashiane told the court the State opposed bail because Mofokeng knew who the witnesses were and some witnesses had already been threatened.

Mofokeng was one of the six men arrested in connection with the Krejcir kidnapping and attempted murder case.

They allegedly kept a man at Krejcir's Money Point business in Bedfordview, Johannesburg, for four days, and assaulted him.

Some of the group also faced charges relating to an alleged plot to kill police crime intelligence officer Colonel Nkosana “Killer” Ximba and private forensic investigator Paul O'Sullivan, both linked to investigations involving Krejcir.
