Krejcir’s mother offers R2m reward for information

The mother of controversial Czech businessperson Radovan Krejcir has offered a R2-million reward for information on two attempts on her son's life, the Star reported on Wednesday.

Nadezda Krejcirova reportedly said in a statement on Tuesday that she was offering R1-million for information on each attempt.

This related to information provided to police that could lead to arrests, prosecution and conviction of those responsible for the attacks.

Krejcirova is listed in the Prague Post as the Czech Republic's 10th richest woman.

Last Tuesday, two people were killed and five others injured in an explosion at Krejcir's Money Point business premises in Befordview on the East Rand.

In July, Krejcir was the target of an apparent assassination attempt outside Money Point.

Krejcir's assets 
Moments after he got out of his car a remote controlled gun installed behind the number plate of a car parked near his was fired at him. Krejcir escaped unharmed.

The South African Revenue Service (Sars) said on Friday that all of had been placed under the control of a curator.

Sars last week obtained a court order placing all of Krejcir's assets – and those of his family and associates – under the control of a curator, following a preservation order issued by the high court in Pretoria.

Sars acted in terms of the Tax Administration Act based on the view that Krejcir owes more than R59-million in taxes, penalties and interest. Sapa
