This is the moment a gunman dons a latex face mask and pretends to be a street cleaner to conduct a reconnaissance on the reality TV star’s brother’s home – before being shot dead on his doorstep.
CCTV footage allegedly shows Anis Hamissi, 24, wearing the disguise for more than four hours outside the 36-year-old’s £1.5 million home of Flamore Bakery in Battersea, southwest London.
Hamissi is accused of shooting dead Bukairi in front of his wife and two-year-old son on Christmas Eve 2019, as part of a bitter feud between rival Swedish criminal gangs.
Mr. Al-Baqiri, whose sister Miss Beckery, 35, appeared on The Real Housewives Of Cheshire, was pierced by eight bullets when he was shot a total of 10 times, Southwark Crown Court heard.
On Thursday, the jury showed CCTV footage that allegedly arrested Hamissi, a Swedish citizen of Tunisian descent, who had monitored the property in the days leading up to the murder.

In one clip, he was allegedly seen dressed as a street cleaner, wearing a latex mask, sunglasses, and high-visibility work clothes, while holding a rubbish lifter and a black basket bag.
Clips from the footage show him frequently walking back and forth in front of the property with a constantly empty basket bag.
The jury heard that the masked janitor had been in the area for more than four hours before being approached by a local resident Jeremy Lyons, who raised his suspicions by the “expressionless” mask as he walked his dog.
From a wall-mounted camera, which also records audio, in the three-storey Al-Baqiri house, footage captured the moment Mr. Lyons asks: ‘Excuse me, who do you work for?’ Who do you work for?’
Then the individual walks as he was told: Stay away from this estate, please.
A clip from the following day shows a man, also said to be a lover, in dark clothing, including a scarf tied tightly under his chin, a knitted hat pulled down over the ears, sunglasses and a different latex mask.
CCTV Officer, Detective Constable Jonathan Moore, of the Metropolitan Police said: “My impression from looking at this clip and the close-up footage of the garbage pickup clip is that this person is wearing a mask, which is why he has tightened his scarf, pulled the hat and sunglasses.
The mask is always expressionless and the mouth does not move.

You can see that they are two separate masks from the definition of the nose. It’s two different masks at play here.
Yesterday, the court heard that the gunman did not hesitate to perform his mission despite the presence of Al-Baqiri’s wife and young son.
Prosecutor Mark Heywood said: “The three were holding hands with the little boy carrying the gift he had just received from his nanny.
When they approached the house, Mr. Al-Baqiri advanced right in front of him and his wife came from behind with the little child.
But the presence of the mother and child did not leave the killer any reason to hesitate.
As they walked a short distance holding hands, Al-Baqiri came from behind and the attention was turning left and at this point the killer was hit.
‘he is [Mr Hesmissi] He came behind Mr. Al-Baqiri, produced the rifle and his magazine contents were fully loaded and it was very fast, very fast actually.
Mr Heywood told the jury that the shots were fired by a semi-automatic pistol from the back, head and torso of Mr. Al-Baqiri, and described how the ‘shots moved from vertical to horizontal’.

‘Even when he fell, the shots continued. His wife and child were there.”
Al-Baqiri, a Swedish citizen of Albanian origin, was allegedly targeted because of his links to the Swedish organized crime network.
Caroline Hakim, the girlfriend of his friend Naif Adawi, 31, was shot dead in Malmö on August 26, 2019 when gunmen opened fire as they were leaving their apartment with their infant child, the court heard.
Hamissi, who traveled to London on December 20 and left the country for Copenhagen, Denmark, in the early hours of Christmas Day, was allegedly part of a team of four killers from Sweden.
It is said that they planned to kill Al-Baqiri for about six months, and hired local residents to clean up once they returned home.
Hamissi denies murder and possession of a self-loading pistol.
Swedish nationals Estefan Benno Munisaga, 35, Tobias Fredrik Andersen, 32, and Bauer Carrier, 23, who were said to have been sent to help Hamisi, also denied the killings.
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.
The trial is continuing.
