Martine - Siste Kapittel / Murder In Mayfair

4 x 45 min, 1 x 60 min.

In 2008, 23-year-old Norwegian student Martine Vik Magnussen was killed after a night out in Mayfair. Hours after her death, the only suspect in the case, Farouk Abdulhak, the son of one of Yemen’s richest and most powerful men, fled the UK to Yemen.

Nawal Al-Maghafi seeks answers to what happened to Martine and uncovers how money, political power and Yemeni law protected Farouk once he had absconded to Yemen, which has no extradition treaty with the UK.

Directed by Gard A. Andreassen & Nawal Al-Maghafi
