A coroner has returned a verdict of “unlawful killing” in the case of Norwigian student, Martine Vik Magnussen.
Magnussen, aged 23, was killed after a night out at a nightclub in Mayfair.
She had met prime suspect, Farouk Abdulhak, at the Maddox Club in Mill Street in March 2008. Her semi naked body was found in the basement of his apartment the next morning.
Abdulhak fled to Yemen, a country with no extradition treaty with the United Kingdom.
The victim’s father, Petter Magnussen, commented outside Westminster Coroner’s Court:
“This really shows the absurd situation that surrounds this case. We have a suspect that has fled to a country where he is untouchable.”
