Police investigating the Czech fugitive Radovan Krejčíř have brought new conspiracy to murder charges against him, linking him to a plan to kill a top crime intelligence officer and a private investigator. Krejčíř had been suspected of involvement in the plans but was not among those charged until the police found evidence that he personally ordered the contract killings. New witnesses have also stepped forward who are willing to give testimony. Krejčíř is currently fighting a number of cases against him in courts across Gauteng. He and three others face charges of kidnapping, assault and attempted murder.
