Interpol issues red notice in hunt for Briton wanted over Myanmar murder

Interpol has joined the hunt for a British murder suspect who left Myanmar after the death of his colleague.

Gary Ferguson, 47, who was British, was found dead in Yangon in November last year. He had suffered head and chest wounds.

Police said suspect Harry Binotti has not been seen since the pair were drinking together two days before Mr Ferguson's body was discovered by his wife in the former's apartment.

The 26-year-old, thought to be from Dumfries but who also lived in Aberdeen, is wanted on suspicion of carrying out the attack. He is understood to have left Myanmar, shortly after Mr Ferguson's death.

Interpol has now issued an international "red notice", which alerts police forces around the world that Binotti is wanted for extradition to face a charge of murder.

He is described as being 5ft 5in tall (1.68m), with brown hair and blue eyes.

Both he and Mr Ferguson taught English at the Horizon International School in Yangon. Mr Ferguson had worked there for a year, while Binotti had been there for around three months.
