Lamont: What can you tell me about your medical condition?

Krejcir: I was in the Kgosi Mampuri II hospital section. I was tortured. I'm on chronic medication for depression for the past 10 years.

Krejcir claims he's never worked in SA. He arrived in April 2007.

11:26

His son Damien stopped working in 2005. Went to university and got an economics degree.

How is Krejcir's 6-year-old supported? Through "these millions", the accused responds. They live "in Czech Republic".

11:25

Krejcir says he's 47 years old, married for 25 years and has two sons.

11:24

Lamont asks the details of Krejcir's life - children, wife, etc.

Is your eldest self-supporting? Krejcir doesn't know.


11:23

I was psychologically tortured for the last two years, Krejcir says.

11:22

In answer to the judge's question as to why the social worker and psychiatrist aren't there already, Krejcir says he only got a chance to see them last week.

11:21
ShareIcon
Krejcir wants to subpoena nurse and psychiatrist to give evidence on his medical condition.

11:20
ShareIcon
Judge Lamont says the time will come when matters of the accused's sentencing will be dealt with and "today is that day".

11:19
ShareIcon
Krejcir says he wants to subpoena the social worker from Zonderwater.

11:18

Lamont now summarising what just happened. He tells the court that Grove withdrew from the matter 16 days ago and that gave Krejcir enough time to appoint a lawyer

He denies Krejcir's application for a postponement.


11:17

Lamont says "I recall you saying in court that you had many millions". Krejcir says yes he does in the Czech Republic [from which he is a fugitive].

11:15
ShareIcon
And the reasons he fired them was because they would not bring forward an application to recuse Lamont from the case.

11:14

Now Krejcir claims Mashiyane is not telling the truth about having access to laweyers in Kokstad. It's not a pattern that I'm changing lawyers. He says he only had Pieter du Plessis, Anneleen van der Heever and now Grove.

So he's only had... three lawyers then.


11:13
ShareIcon
Mashiyane says for the past 6 months after the conviction, Krejcir has been firing his legal representatives. Which kept delaying proceedings. The accused can proceed with sentencing. He just doesn't want sentencing to proceed.

11:11

Annelene van den Heever, one of Accused 1's previous lawyers, is now standing. She says Krejcir was refused access to his lawyers and wanted to place it on record as an officer of the court.

State Prosecutor Louis Mashiyane says this is not true. Since the 6 February this marriage he was talking about, was falling apart, the prosecutor says.

Van der Heever now respresents Accused 2 Desai Lupondo.


11:07

I would like for a postponement to appoint my legal representative of my choice.

11:07

He repeats that he believes Lamont was behind the transfer to Kokstad and it's not his fault that he was moved there and that made consultations [with his legal reps] difficult. Says his relationship with Nardus Grove, Krejcir's lawyer who withdrew earlier this morning, was like a marriage. The 'divorce' between them happened when he was transferred back from Kokstad.

- The fugitive is currently on lockdown at C-Max in Kokstad, KwaZulu-Natal, following numerous attempts to escape from Zonderwater prison.

Judge Lamont has made no secret of the fact that wants to be rid of this #Krejcir matter. Evidently frustrated he's still sitting with it.

The Czech fugitive says he appointed him in January but the prison officials have only let him see him once for 20 minutes. Alexander is in the High Court but on another matter. He only spoke to Alexander when he was transferred back to Zonderwater.

Now Krejcir says his new lawyer is Cliff Alexander.

11:00
ShareIcon
Regarding my sentence procedure I wish to launch an application for legal representation because its not only sentencing but also leave to appeal (that I'll need advocate for) - Krejcir

10:58
ShareIcon
Not a good morning for Krejcir. Bid to have his chains removed denied by judge who says he has no power over that. And his application to have Judge Lamont recused is also denied.

10:55
ShareIcon
Krejcir's application to have judge recused dismissed.

10:53
ShareIcon
I do not believe that there's any merit to the fact that the accused believes I'm biased - Lamont

10:50
ShareIcon
Now Krejcir wants to know if he can be unchained. I'm the only one in chains here, he says.

10:49
ShareIcon
As has been the case throughout this trial, there's a heavy police presence in the courtroom. The officers are packing some very serious-looking firepower.

10:45
ShareIcon

Krejcir - I believe you are bias because you say i face a heavy sentence. Lamont - you do, your charges are serious.

I'm not going to debate the judgment with you, Lamont firmly tells Accused 1 (Krejcir).


10:41
ShareIcon
Krejcir continuing his argument: I strongly believe when you delivered your judgment you didn't recognise the conspiracy against me.

10:39

"What are you suggesting is my role in any of these things?" asks Lamont in relation to #Krejcir's mention of bomb attack in #Bedfordview

— Erin Bates (@ermbates) February 22, 2016

10:37
ShareIcon
You live in Bedfordview, Krejcir tells Lamont. What does that have to do with all this, the judge wants to know.

10:34
ShareIcon

I believe you are part of this conspiracy, Krejcir rather boldly announces to the court and judge.

Judge Lamont has rather... quizzical look on his face.


10:32
ShareIcon
Krejcir, standing before Lamont in a white T-shirt and shackles and shifting his weight from one foot to the other, is representing himself. He continues to explain to the judge why he should recuse himself.

10:28

Krejcir is now putting it to Judge Colin Lamont that he is not fit to do the sentencing as he is biased against the accused.

10:28

Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir and his five co-accused are expected to be sentenced in the High Court in Johannesburg on Monday.

On August 24, Krejcir was convicted of attempted murder, kidnapping and dealing in drugs.

The matter related to the kidnapping and torture of Bheki Lukhele, whose brother, Doctor, had allegedly disappeared with 25kg of tik.

He has attempted multiple prison escape attempts since his arrest.
