Louca wants out of killing game
GEORGE Louca, the Cypriot fugitive accused of killing strip king Lolly Jackson, wants out of his circle of friends and thinks remaining in Cyprus will help keep him alive.
Jackson was shot and killed in 2010, allegedly by Louca, in his rented home in Ekurhuleni.
A gun belonging to former Gauteng Scorpions boss MajorGeneral Joey Mabasa was reportedly used.
Louca is fighting his extradition to South Africa and has taken Cypriot Minister of Justice and Public Order Ionas Nikolaou to court to reverse a decision he made in July.
Louca’s lawyer, Loukis Loucaides, a former judge of the European Court of Human Rights, told Sunday World that they argued that there was a high probability that Louca would be killed in South Africa if he were to return.
“It’s illegal to take someone to a country where there’s a high possibility that his human rights will be violated, ” he said.
Loucaides said this argument was not based on what would happen to his client at the hands of the state.
“We are saying that he will be killed by other people who will use his return to get to him.”
Asked if their argument was an admission that Louca knew these people who were killing each other in South Africa, he said: “He does but he wants to get out of that.”
Louca fled the country a month after Jackson’s murder.
It has been reported that Louca killed Jackson on the instruction of his associate Radovan Krejcir, who was arrested on Friday on charges of kidnapping and attempted murder.
Since Louca left South Africa there have been about 10 killings linked to the Bedfordview underworld.
