Fireworks due at Lolly murder trial

A series of affidavits are set to blow the lid off the operations of suspected Mafia boss Radovan Krejcir and his alleged links to the murder of strip club boss Lolly Jackson.

Lawyers for George Louca, who is set to stand trial for Jackson’s murder in April, informed the prosecuting team last week that they had several statements allegedly implicating Krejcir as Jackson’s killer. Krejcir is listed as a state witness against Louca.

Yesterday, prosecutor Paul Schutte asked the Palm Ridge Magistrate’s Court, where Louca is to stand trial, for a postponement, confirming representations had been made to them.

The trial was postponed to April. After Jackson’s murder, ex-Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabaso said Louca had confessed to the murder before he fled to Cyprus. Louca, according to his lawyer, Owen Bloomberg, is now to reveal the “whole truth”.

“Statements have been made to the police. Caution is needed. I cannot comment on the contents except that they are significant.”

National Prosecuting Authority spokesman Velekhaya Mgobhozi denied a deal was being made.

“We were approached last week by Louca’s lawyers, but there is no deal,” he said.

Krejcir’s lawyers dismissed the allegations.
