Dutchman sought in murder inquiry

Tom Brady Security Editor

GARDAI have issued a fresh appeal for help in tracking down a Dutch national who is wanted for a murder in Belgium more than 12 years ago.

Extensive inquiries have already been carried out around the centre of Dublin to identify Morgan Schreurs (39).

Mr Schreurs is the prime suspect for a murder in Brussels in November 1999 and is believed to have moved to Dublin around that time.

He is now included in a list of 25 high-profile targets circulated by Interpol as part of an international joint police operation, codenamed Infra-Red 2012 and focusing on the arrest of major crime suspects.

The list was drawn from over 500 targets compiled by police forces in 57 countries.

At the time of the murder, police intelligence indicated that Mr Schreurs was working on a building site in Munich and then moved to Dublin, where he was employed in pubs around the city centre.

Barman

Gardai in Pearse Street and Store Street stations believe he worked here as a barman and part-time DJ, using the stage name DJ Morgandroid in 2002.

It was also believed that he suffered from liver damage, which could have required an operation.

The suspect can speak Dutch, German, English and French. He is about 6ft tall, with a scar over his left eye and was born on May 15, 1973.
