The son of a Yemeni billionaire, Farouq Abdulhaq, has admitted his involvement in the death of 23-year-old student Martina Vic Magnussen, more than 15 years after he fled London for Yemen.
The man told a BBC journalist about it.
The body of 23-year-old Norwegian Magnussen was found in 2008 under a pile of garbage in a basement in central London.
Abdulhaq claims that Magnussen, with whom they studied together,
died as a result of an "accident during sex".
"Nobody knows the truth, because I don't remember much myself," the man told the journalist.
And when she asked
what the reason was, he answered with only one word: "Cocaine."
At the same time, the coroner in his report indicated the horrible death of the Norwegian student - as a result of "squeezing the neck".
There were 43 cuts and bruises
on Magnussen's body
As the coroner wrote, "many of them looked like typical injuries of a violent nature or received during resistance."
Martina's friends last saw her alive on the morning of March 14, 2008, at a nightclub where she and Farouk were celebrating passing exams.
The guy then offered to hold a party in his apartment in the center of London.
Most of the friends went home due to fatigue, but Martina wanted to continue celebrating.
The student's friends have already told the journalist that Farouk seemed different that day - he got angry when one of his friends took a picture of him and Martina.
Another friend of the girl said that
Farouk once tried to kiss Martina, but she said that she was not interested in it
However, the student often spent the night in his apartment, because it is located in the city center.
When Martina did not return home the next day, her friends reported her missing.
The police started to take it seriously only when someone noticed that Farooq had deleted his Facebook account.
Police officers searched the guy's apartment and quickly
found the girl's half-naked body in the basement of his house.
By that time, Farooq had already fled Britain.
Police knew he had taken a passenger flight from London to Cairo but had no details of his escape.
Later it turned out that the boy then
boarded his father's private plane and flew to Yemen.
Faruk's lawyer assured that he is not guilty of murder.
Note that Faruk is not an ordinary Yemeni.
As a child, he lived in the USA and Egypt.
The man is the son of Shaher Abdulak, one of the richest and most influential people in Yemen.
Abdulhaq Sr. built a business empire dealing in sugar, soft drinks, oil and weapons, and was a close friend of then-President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
I deeply regret that accident
. I regret that I came here (to Yemen - ed.) - I should have stayed and taken responsibility," Faruk told the journalist.
Today, the man is on the list of the most wanted people by the London police, and an international warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Abdulhak said that he is not ready to return to Britain and meet with the police.
According to him, it is too late for that.
It will be recalled that after 13 years in Israel, the court acquitted the Ukrainian Roman Zadorov, who was accused of the brutal murder of a 13-year-old schoolgirl.
The man denied his involvement in the crime, while the relatives of the murdered girl insisted that the court punished the wrong person.
