George Louca was extradited to South Africa to stand trial for the 2010 murder of strip club boss Lolly Jackson. On 21 April 2015, accused George Louca appeared in court with an application to be released from jail on medical parole, as he was suffering from stage four lung cancer. He wanted to be with his family when he died. However, Judge Geraldine Borchers dismissed this application and Louca spent the remainder of his days in jail.
George Louca died in South Africa on Monday night at the hospital unit in prison.
Louca's family is angry with the way he was treated, after Louca requested to be released from jail on medical parole. 702's Xolani Gwala spoke to Dimitri Panayiotou, the brother of the late George Louca. Clearly still upset, he had this to say:
I believe the South African authorities wanted him to die in South Africa. They took all the information from my brother and then they threw him away. This is unfair. They let him die in the cell like a dog.— Dimitri Panayiotou
