Article Date: August 4, 2008
The Scotland Yard announced the name of the Yemeni billionaire Shaher Abdul Haq's son Farouk among those wanted in connection with a murder crime.
Farouk Abdul Hak, born in 1987, is wanted in connection with the murder of his Norwegian college student Martine Vik-Magnussen, whose body was found inside the basement of 222 Great Portland Street, London on March 16, 2008.
Abdul Haq, of Yemeni and Egyptian origins, was at the time studying at Regents Business School London and is known to have fled to Yemen immediately following the murder. He is known to have connections in Europe, the USA and other Middle Eastern countries.
It had become clear later the Abdul Haq the son, had left London to Yemen, two days before the police recovered Vik-Magnussen's corpse. The post-mortem examination found Ms Vik Magnussen suffered significant injuries to her neck.
The police believe that Farouk raped and killed his Regent Business School fellow Magnussen, especially when he was seen by witnesses on the eve of the incident in a nightclub and left home together according to British media.
The British police published a photograph for Farouk on its electronic website including details about him and his connection with the murder crime.
Diplomats are working secretly in Britain and Norway in an effort to bring Farouk to London to stand before the judiciary after the police referred the case to the general prosecution which may issue an arrest warrant for him.
Farouk left to Egypt immediately after the crime on a rented plane and then to Yemen to avoid trail or jail, especially when Yemen has no extradition treaty with the UK.
Shaher Abdulhak founded Shaher Trading in Yemen in the 1960s, and his empire includes petroleum, soft drinks, tourism and property. He is also known as the King of Sugar in the Middle East.He also owns the International Bank of Yemen, MTN Yemen, Mercedes Benz agency, Coca Cola Yemen, and several others.
