A hitman wears a latex mask before he shoots the Real Housewives of Cheshire star’s brother


A court heard that a gunman wearing a latex mask disguised himself as a garbage collector to carry out a four-hour reconnaissance mission before shooting a star’s brother in front of his family.

Flamur Beqiri, 36, whose sister Miss Beqiri appeared at Real Housewives Of Cheshire, was killed outside his home in Battersea, southwest London, around 9pm on Christmas Eve 2019.

Southwark Crown Court heard that a father-of-two was holding hands with his wife, Deborah Krasnicki, and their two-year-old son, moments before alleged killer Anis Hemisi, 24, was shot from behind.

The court also heard how the killer stayed in Battersea’s riverfront apartment and made reconnaissance trips incognito using a bicycle and a garbage collector purchased by his accomplices.

On one occasion, two days before the murder, Hamisi was allegedly dressed in work clothes, including a jacket and pants with neon flashes, a long hat and gloves.

But the court heard that he aroused the suspicion of a local dog-walker, who defied Hamissi, prompting him to walk out.

Hemisi also wore a latex mask and other camouflage to conduct the survey the next day and the same dark clothing when he shot Mr. Al-Baqiri.

On his first trip, he is said to have cycled to Mr. Al-Baqiri’s home, then toured the area for four and a half hours with a ‘black bag in one hand and a garbage collector in the other’.

Prosecutor Mark Haywood QC told the jury, “Not was his head covered in a dark hat, his neck draped high toward his face, and his eyes covered with sunglasses, but also, it would be up to you, it seems. As if he was wearing a latex mask, too.

“The garbage collection uniform has never been worn again because its hood is blown, it’s that simple,” Mr Heywood said.

He said that Hamisi repeatedly fired a semi-automatic pistol “bang, hit, hit” at al-Baqiri, with shots chasing him as he “moved from vertical to horizontal” and “hit the ground.”

“Obviously the intent was very clear,” he said.

First, it was murder. Second, it was to do so in a way calculated to create maximum horror and shock.

“This is clear from the way it was done, the time it was done, and the place it was done.”

The jury heard that a team of assassins from Sweden planned to kill Al-Baqiri, a Swedish/Albanian national, for about six months, and hire local residents to clean up once they returned home.

Mr Heywood said the steps leading up to the killing “involved planning, good judgment, thought and effort and it was collaboration”.

The court heard Hamissi, a Swedish/Tunisian national, who flew to London on December 20 and left the country for Copenhagen, Denmark, in the early hours of Christmas Day.

Hamissi denies murder and possession of a self-loading pistol.

He is on trial along with Swedish nationals Estefan Benno Munisaga, 35, Tobias Fredrik Andersson, 32, and Bauer Carrier, 23, who are said to have been part of the “on the ground” team sent to help Hemisi. They also deny murder.

British national Clifford Rolex, 31, of Islington, north London, and Dutch national Claude Isaac Castor, 21, of St Maarten in the Caribbean but resident in the UK, deny perverting the course of justice.

Heywood previously said the couple were involved in ‘cleaning and removing the killer’s trade paraphernalia’ in the apartment where the alleged shooter resided on Christmas Day and December 27, 2019.

It is alleged that Qareer’s cousin, Ahmed Qarayer, was involved in “the planning and movement of money and most likely in the giving of instructions”, with the help of his partner and mother of his children, Azadeh Itesamipur.

Neither of them is subject to trial, which continues.
