Interpol have sent out a "red notice" alert for a teacher accused of the November 2016 murder of an English co-worker in southern Myanmar.
Scotsman Harris Binotti was teaching for three months at Yangon's Horizon International School with Gary Ferguson, who had been employed for a year.
Binotti, 26, had reportedly been out drinking with Ferguson, 47, two nights prior to the Englishman's body being found in his flat on 4 November – with neighbours allegedly claiming to hear sounds of "shouting and banging" at the time, hinting that a fight had taken place.
The teacher, from Dumfries, then took a flight to Thailand a day before the discovery.
Ferguson died from injuries to his chest and head.
Interpol – the International Criminal Police Organisation, which works as a network of criminal law enforcement agencies in various countries – has issued a "red notice" alert that charges Binotti with murder.
He can now be tracked down by police internationally with a view to an arrest.
The brother of the victim, Martin Ferguson, released an emotional statement on his Facebook page, confirming Interpol's notice.
"After such a hard and long fight, I am in tears to announce that Binotti has finally been put on the Interpol list of wanted persons. He can now be arrested internationally."
A red notice is issued by Interpol when an individual is sought after by many national jurisdictions – it is not an official arrest warrant. Instead, it helps identify the suspect.
Binotti is believed to have brown hair and blue eyes and is roughly 1.68m (5ft 5in) tall.
