The meeting between Judge Tshifhiwa Maumela and State Prosecutor George Baloyi was held in order to discuss the current standing of the second docket.
The direction given by the National Prosecuting Authorities to the court states that it must now make a decision regarding the second docket.
State Prosecutor George Baloyi confirmed today in court that the 2nd docket, which is about folks who were present in the room when Senzo Meyiwa was killed, has been transferred from Johannesburg Pretoria.
As stated in Baloyi’s submission to the court, the Director of Public Prosecutions in Pretoria has ceased handling both matters as of recently.
When asked if there would be additional proceedings on that docket, both Advocate Baloyi and Judge Maumela responded with a resounding “Yes, the DPP will make a judgment” (375).
If the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) agrees to proceed with the second docket, then the arrests of Kelly Khumalo, Longwe Thwala, and the other individuals involved will take place.
The following explanation explains why the witness who was present when Senzo Meyiwa was shot did not show up in court
The trial of Senzo Meyiwa was scheduled to be postponed today; however, the case had to be postponed due to unforeseen circumstances, and it will now take place on Tuesday, September 13th, 2022.
The state asserts that they have a witness who was in the house at the time that Senzo was shot, and they have provided this witness’s name. It is stated that the witness is a nearby resident.
Due to the fact that the neighbor’s flight is scheduled to arrive in the afternoon, they were unable to attend the court hearing. The prosecutor informed the court that the state was unable to book an earlier flight for the witness despite their best efforts.
Shockwaves were thrown through the population of South Africa when it was first disclosed that the state had obtained the testimony of a witness who was present in the residence. It also sparked considerable suspicion, including questions about whether or not the crime scene had been tampered with and whether or not one of the people who had been at the residence was present at the time of the crime.
The court proceeding will pick back up the next day.
Here is South Africa’s most dangerous criminal, who has been locked up for 35 years.
Former Czech mob boss Radovan Krej (born 4 November 1968) is currently serving time in a South African prison for his crimes and is wanted for extradition by Czech authorities.
He was given a 15.5-year sentence in the Czech Republic and a 35-year sentence in South Africa.
After amassing his fortune dishonestly, he was still regarded as one of the richest people in the Czech Republic in the 1990s.
Although Krej was taken into custody in June 2005, he quickly left the country and eventually settled in the Seychelles.
In 2012, he was found guilty of fraud to the tune of CZK 108,000,000 and was sentenced to eight years in prison without ever having to set foot in a courtroom.
He was apprehended in South Africa in November of 2013 and charged with kidnapping and attempted murder.
The trials started in May of 2014.
A judge found him guilty of kidnapping, assault, and attempted murder in August of 2015.
The trials have yet to conclude. On February 23, 2016, in Johannesburg, Radovan Krej was sentenced to a mandatory minimum of 35 years in prison.
He started his life of crime not long after the Velvet Revolution of the early 1990s.
He became wealthy through the privatization of Czech vouchers and, with a business partner, established Corado.
Since the mid-1990s, when authorities began keeping tabs on him over suspicions of money laundering, his transactions have been closely watched.
In June of 2005, the police raided his lavish villa in Ernoice and arrested him on charges of attempted murder of a customs officer, fraud, and criminal conspiracy.
With police called, Krej managed to flee the residence, and Ji Kolá, the head of the Czech Police, was forced to retire as a result.
During the month of September 2005, Interpol located him in the Seychelles, where he was visiting family.
In April of 2007, he relocated to South Africa under the alias Egbert Jules Savy.
He was detained at the O. Johannesburg’s R. Tambo International Airport.
The Czech Republic and South Africa entered into extradition discussions, but South Africa finally rejected the request on the basis that he had allegedly bribed the relevant court.
He has murder plot and tax evasion allegations pending against him in the Czech Republic.
Because of his time spent in South Africa, Krej has connections to the criminal underworld there. In July of 2013, he was the victim of an incident in which a remote-controlled gun was used to smash into the vehicle he was traveling in.
In 2011, he was an instrumental part of the investigation into the killing of Cape Town crime lord Cyril Beeka.
South African media have linked him to the kidnapping and murder of Uwe Gemballa, the company’s namesake, as well as many other killings in the region.
The Gemballa vehicles are accused of being used by Krej to transport illegal funds into South Africa.
Krej is presently serving time at Kgosi Mampuru Prison in the Gauteng province of South Africa for drug trafficking, kidnapping, and attempted murder.
His Seychellois citizenship expired on March 31, 2017.
