Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcir, who faces charges of attempted murder, assault and kidnapping, appeared in court Monday for a bail hearing amid tight security.
He is accused with three other people, including two members of the South African police's special investigative unit.
Krejcir, who denied all charges, has been linked to underworld figures in Johannesburg and local media have reported the killings of several of his alleged associates in recent weeks.
The bail hearing continues on Wednesday.
