Two Men Deny Murdering ‘RHOCheshire’ Alum Missé Beqiri’s Brother!

Two men have denied murdering, Flamur 'Alex' Bequiri, the brother of former Real Housewives of Cheshire star Missé Beqiri. 

Anis Fouad Hemissi, a 23-year-old Swedish kickboxer, who is being accused of the alleged gunman, appeared at a virtual hearing at the Central Criminal Court (the Old Bailey) on Thursday, Jan. 28. He denied murder and possessing a prohibited firearm described as a self-loading pistol.

According to The Daily Mail, Hemissi appeared at court alongside two other defendants. Tobias Andersson (31)  who was extradited from Sweden in November, denied a single charge of murder.

Clifford Rollox (30) of Islington, north London, pleaded not guilty to perverting the course of justice by allegedly disposing of evidence. A fourth defendant, Estevan Alexis Pino-Munizaga (34) who is charged with murder, was not present in court as he is self-isolating.

Police have said another Swedish national, aged 22, is currently still subject to the extradition process after he was arrested on a UK European Arrest Warrant (EAW).

During the hearing, Mrs. Justice Cheema-Grubb said that a trial, originally scheduled for July, could now not be heard before October. The senior judge set a further hearing for March 19, reports the publication.

As previously reported, Beqiri was gunned down outside his £1.5million home in Battersea, South West London in front of his wife and young son on Christmas Eve.

A month later, Anis Fouad Hemissi was arrested and extradited to the UK after police arrested him at Copenhagen Airport on a European Arrest Warrant on January 20. He's been charged with murder and possession of a firearm.

Hemissi was held under a European Arrest Warrant at Copenhagen Airport at the request of Scotland Yard after arriving there on a flight from Thailand.

Hassimi is from the Swedish city of Malmo, where Beqiri fled in 2016 after receiving death threats, The Sun reported.

“A 22-year-old man was arrested at Copenhagen Airport, Denmark, on 20 January on a European Arrest Warrant on suspicion of the murder of Flamur Beqiri,” The Metropolitan Police said in a statement in January 2020. “He remains in custody in Denmark pending extradition proceedings back to the UK.”

In August 2020, Hemissi denied murdering Beqiri. The 23-year-old kickboxer appeared at the Central Criminal Court of England and Wales (The Old Bailey) to deny the murder and possession of a firearm.

He was remanded in custody ahead of a three-week trial that took place on July 12. Catherine Farrelly, prosecuting, told the court Hemissi flew into the UK four days before the killings.

“The sole purpose of his trip was essentially to execute the deceased. The prosecution says this was an organized hit,” she said at that time, according to The Sun. “Within an hour of the hit taking place, he then flew out of the country and flew to Copenhagen.”

A police spokesman said that three men arrested in Sweden on October 8 are all subject to the extradition process through the Swedish judicial system. The men are aged 22, 31, and 33 and are all Swedish nationals.

Beqiri was a Swedish citizen of Albanian origin who had left Malmo for London nearly five years ago.
