Johannesburg - An explosive was detonated outside Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir's Bedfordview office in Johannesburg on Wednesday, apparently in a bid to kill him, police said.
“It is alleged that he (Krejcir) arrived at the premises and parked his vehicle,” said Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini.
“As he was leaving the parking spot, an explosive device was detonated from the back of a vehicle, a VW Polo, parked opposite his vehicle.”
Krejcir escaped unharmed. The blast, in the parking lot of the Money Point gold and diamond exchange's head office, on the corner of Nicol and Bradford Roads, Bedfordview, left several holes in Krejcir's car. The VW Polo was stolen in Brixton, Johannesburg, in April.
“It was apparently parked on the premises yesterday (Tuesday) by an unknown person.”
