A fourth man has now been charged in connection with the murder of Flamur Beqiri in Battersea last year.

34-year-old Estevan Alexis Pino-Munizaga, a Swedish national, was extradited from Sweden to the UK on Tuesday, 10 November. He will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, 11 November.

A European Arrest Warrant (EAW) has been used to detain a further three men in Sweden in connection with the shooting of Flamur Beqiri.

The men, Swedish nationals, aged 33, 31 and 22, were arrested on 8 October, at addresses in Stockholm and Vaxjo on suspicion of the murder of the man who was fatally shot in Battersea on Christmas Eve 2019. All three will now be subject to the extradition process through the Swedish judicial system.

22-year-old Anis Fouad Hemissi, a Swedish National, was returned to the UK this June following his arrest at Copenhagen Airport on 20 January under an EAW. In addition to murder, he was also charged with possession of a firearm. He is due to appear at the Old Bailey on 1 December along with 30-year-old Clifford Rollox of Percival Street, Islington, who is charged with perverting the course of public justice and 31-year-old Tobias Fredrik Andersson, a Swedish national, who was extradited from Sweden on Wednesday, 4 November and is charged with murder.

36-year-old Flamur Beqiri, a Swedish national of Albanian origin who lived in the Battersea area for over four years was returning home after an evening out with his family, including his young wife and child when he was shot multiple times on Battersea Church Road.

At the time police believed this may have been a targeted attack and said they were looking into the possibility that Mr Beqiri may have been involved in ‘some criminality in Sweden’. They were liaising with Swedish police to see if this had led to someone seeking retribution against him in the UK.

Mr Beqiri is the brother of former Real Housewives Of Cheshire star Misse Beqiri.
