A gunman wearing a latex mask disguised himself as a litter picker to carry out a four-hourreconnaissance mission before shooting dead a reality star’s brother in front of his family, a court has heard.

Flamur Beqiri (36), whose sister Misse beqiri was featured in Real Housewives Of Cheshire. He was found dead outside of his Battersea home, south-west London at 9:59 on Christmas Eve 2019.

Southwark Crown Court heard the victim, a father-of-two, had just been with Debora Krasniqi, his wife and their 2-year-old son moments before Anis Shemissi struck from behind.

Court also learned that the murderer lived in Battersea’s riverfront flat, and made reconnaissance trips disguised using a bike and litter picker purchased by his accomplices.

Hemissi was allegedly seen wearing work clothes on one occasion two days prior to the murder. Hemissi had worn a jacket, trousers, and boots with neon flashes. He also had a hat, gloves, and boots. 

The court learned that Hemissi had attracted the suspicions and ire of a dog-walker from nearby who dog-walking, which led to Hemissi walking off. 

Hemissi also had a disguise of latex and another to perform reconnaissance that day, and the same dark clothes when he shot Mr Beqiri.

According to reports, his first trip consisted of a bicycle ride to Mr Beqiri’s house, followed by a four-and a half hour walk around the neighborhood with a “black bag” and a “litter picker” in each hand.

Prosecutor Mark Heywood QC told the jury:  ‘Not only was his head covered with a dark hat, his neck wrapped up high towards his face, his eyes covered with sunglasses, but also, it will be a matter for you to consider, it appears as if he was wearing a latex mask as well.’

Mr Heywood stated that the litter picker’s outfit wasn’t worn again as his cover was blown. It is simple, as it seems.    

He claimed that Hemissi fired semi-automatic pistol shots at Mr Beqiri, with the shot following as he ‘went from vertical to horizontal and hit the ground.

He stated that the intention was very clear.

It was first to kill. The second was that it did so in order to create maximum terror and shock.

“That’s what you can see from how it was done, when it was completed, and in which place.

Jurors have heard from Sweden that there was a six-month plan to kill Mr Beqiri. The killers hired locals to do the cleanup once they were back home.

Heywood stated that the factors leading to the death were planning, discretion, thought, effort, and collaborative.

Hemissi was a Swedish/Tunisian citizen who flew to London on December 20, and then left the country for Copenhagen, Denmark in the early hours Christmas Day. 

Hemissi denied murder and possessing a self-loading gun.

He faces trial alongside Tobias Fredrik Andersson (32), Estevan Pino­-Munizaga (35) and Bawer Karaer (23) who, according to some, were part of the team “on the ground” sent to help Hemissi. They deny the murder.

Clifford Rollox (31-year-old UK citizen, Islington) and Claude Isaac Castor (21) from Sint Maarten, the Caribbean, but who is currently residing in the UK, both deny perverting justice.

Herr Heywood stated earlier that the two were involved in clearing up and removing tools from the murderer’s trade at the apartment where the suspect stayed on Christmas Day 2019 and Christmas 27 2019.

Ahmet Karaer is Karaer’s cousin. He’s alleged to be involved in the “planning, money movement, and most likely in the giving instructions”, with the help of Azadeh Etesamipour, his partner and mother.

They are both currently on trial.
