Johannesburg - Cypriot George Louca appeared in the Kempton Park Magistrate's Court on Monday in connection with the murder of Teazers strip club boss Lolly Jackson.

His case was postponed to February 18 to allow Louca to secure an attorney.

Louca returned to South Africa on Sunday morning after losing his final appeal in the Supreme Court of Cyprus, the last of several attempts to evade extradition.

Louca fled South Africa after the murder of strip club boss Jackson at a house in Edenglen, east of Johannesburg, on May 3, 2010.

He allegedly phoned Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and confessed to killing Jackson shortly after the murder.

Lt-Gen Solomon Makgale said on Sunday the Hawks were investigating a number of other cases to which Louca could possibly be linked.

Louca previously told the Sunday Times that he did not believe he would be granted a fair trial. - Sapa
