Farouk Meyer, a convicted killer and alleged infamous underworld boss was on Monday night shot and killed in Eldorado Park, Johannesburg, along with another man. News24 reports that in 2000, Meyer was convicted of the murders of three people who were killed at a nightclub in Roodepoort. While in 2009, he made headlines after escaping from prison, reportedly in a bid to prove he was “framed”, before handing himself over to police. Meyer, who always claimed he was innocent, was released on parole in 2014 after receiving assistance from the Wits Justice Project and the motive for the shooting is currently unkown.
