Krejcir-linked man’s case postponed

Johannesburg - The case against Owen Serero, allegedly linked to the attempted murder of investigators in the case against Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir, was postponed on Monday.

The matter was postponed in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court to March 31 for further investigations.

Dressed in a white formal jacket and jeans, he appeared under heavy police guard.

Prosecutor Penny Pillay told the court there were further investigations that needed to be done and asked the court to postpone the matter.

Serero's parents were in court and complained to his lawyer Tshega Ntaki that they did not hear anything during proceedings because they were sitting at the back.

Ntaki promised to explain everything to them later on.

Serero faces three charges of robbery, two of possession of illegal firearms and ammunition, three of motor vehicle theft, one contravening traffic laws, one of interfering with an investigation, and one of escaping from custody.

He is also part of a group of people arrested in connection with the alleged attempted murder of the investigators in Krejcir's case. - Sapa
