JOHANNESBURG — Czech businessman Radovan Krejcir was arrested on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping yesterday, police confirmed.
Gauteng police spokesperson LieutenantGeneral Solomon Makgale said Krejcir was arrested “after 6 pm at his house in Gauteng”.
Last Tuesday, two people died and five were injured in an explosion at Krejcir’s business Money Point in Bedfordview, on the East Rand.
In July, Krejcir was the target of an elaborate apparent assassination attempt outside Money Point.
The SA Revenue Service said last Friday that all Krejcir’s assets had been placed under the control of a curator.
