Radovan Krejcir dying in jail - lawyer

Radovan Krejcir, 52, was convicted of attempted murder, kidnapping and dealing in drugs in 2015 and was sentenced to 35 years in jail. He's spent the last few years at Leeuwkop prison. He is being sought for extradition by the Czech Republic where he was sentenced to 15.5 years. His lawyer claims he is suffering inhumane conditions. " ... he is chained like an abused dog."
The former mistress of Czech mobster Radovan Krejcir was sentenced to 24 months in prison for aiding and abetting him in one of his escape attempts. Marissa Christopher, one-time Playboy cover girl, was sentenced after entering into a plea agreement. Christopher was charged with seven others after a foiled Krejcir plot to escape from Zonderwater Correctional.
She avoided jail time by paying r80,000, around $4,800 USD. Radovan Krejcir is currently serving a 35-year sentence for attempted murder and kidnapping.
Marissa Christopher was charged with five counts of conspiracy to commit an offence, aiding an escape from lawful custody, corruption, defeating the ends of justice, and unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.
