The man killed in a hit in Bedfordview yesterday was George Mihaljevic, a well known businessman with ties to the underworld. Also known as ‘Hollywood George' , he used to own the Sandton Gold and Diamond Exchange and Salon Prive. He' s of Serbian/Montenegrin descent. Mihaljevic' s beauty queen wife and two young children live in Bulgaria. He left South Africa after his own father was kidnapped and beaten a few years ago. He subsequently died. I met Mihaljevic at his Sandton Gold and Diamond Exchange years ago, when he was doing business with Krejcir. He was also friends with Chris Couremetis aka Mr Big who was shot in a hit at The Cradle. Mihaljevic was charming and insisted he was a clean, legitimate businessman.
