Scot sought over NI man's death in Burma

By Staff Reporter

Interpol has joined the hunt for a Scotsman wanted over the death of his Northern Ireland-born colleague in Burma.

English teacher Gary Ferguson (47), from Bangor, was living in Myanmar (formerly Burma) with his wife Supatchaya Sichompor and four-year-old son Jeremy. He was found dead with head and chest wounds in Rangoon last November.

Burmese police said Harris Binotti, thought to be from Dumfries, has not been seen since he and Mr Ferguson had been drinking together in the commercial capital of the country.

The 26-year-old is wanted on suspicion of carrying out the attack, but is understood to have left the country shortly after the death.

Interpol has now issued an international 'red notice' alerting police forces around the world that Mr Binotti is wanted for extradition.

The notice states that he faces a charge of murder and describes him as 5ft 5ins with brown hair and blue eyes.

Both men taught English at the Horizon International School in the city.
