The High Court in Johannesburg was evacuated after a bomb threat during sentencing proceedings for convicted drug dealer Radovan Krejcir on Monday afternoon.

Police sniffer dogs arrived at the court after 14:00 after everyone was asked to leave the building.

Earlier in the day Krejcir, representing himself, asked Judge Colin Lamont to recuse himself, saying he was biased and dishonest. When Krejcir failed to provide proof, Lamont dismissed his application.

Krejcir wanted a postponement, a request Lamont also denied.

In August, Krejcir was convicted of attempted murder, kidnapping, and dealing in drugs. He was involved in the kidnapping and torture of Bheki Lukhele, whose brother, Doctor, allegedly disappeared with 25kg of the drug tik belonging to Krejcir.

Doctor worked for a cargo company at OR Tambo International Airport and Krejcir wanted his help to smuggle the drug out of the country.
