Johannesburg - Lawyers for controversial Czech fugitive Radovan Krecjir have been granted a court order forcing police to divulge the whereabouts of their client, after he was arrested on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping, according to Eyewitness News.

After initial reports of the arrest, police spokesperson Lieutenant General Solomon Makgale confirmed on Friday that "Krejcir was arrested after 18:00 at his house in Gauteng".

"He was arrested on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping."

But EWN reported that lawyers did not know where Krejcir was being detained, and the order granted by the high court now compelled police to allow him exercise his right to representation.

According to Sapa, late on Friday police said that although they did not usually name suspects before they appeared in court, "it was decided on the basis of the existence of an arrest warrant and public interest that the suspect in this instance will be identified".

A media briefing about the arrest would be held in Pretoria on Saturday.

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

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

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

The SA Revenue Service said last Friday that all Krejcir's assets had been placed under the control of a curator.
