Australian Man Suspected Of Murder Begs To Come Home From Afghanistan

An Australian murder suspect has begged to come home from Afghanistan after the Taliban took over.

Saied Hussaini fled Perth back in 2017 after being accused of being involved in the torture and murder of his friend Dejan Dimitrovski.

The 32-year-old allegedly used his brother's passport to fly to the Middle East and has been laying low in Afghanistan ever since.

However, with the arrival of the Taliban, Hussaini was one of thousands of people who dashed to Kabul Airport in the hope of escaping the terror of the militant group.

9News reports the suspect has managed to get clearance into the heavily guarded international airport and is waiting for a rescue flight.

Australian authorities have been working around the clock to extract as many Australian citizens, their families and those who have been given visas from Afghanistan.

It's unclear how long Hussaini will have to wait to be rescued, however the Taliban has been trying to regain some control over the airport to prevent Afghanis from leaving and only permitting foreigners to leave.

Hussaini's barrister Jeremy Noble told 9News: "All Australian citizens are entitled to the safety that they deserve by right of their citizenship. This man will face due process when he comes back to Australia."

According to Daily Mail Australia, Western Australia Police are anticipating Hussaini's arrival and plan to arrest and charge him with murder the moment he touches down onto Aussie soil.

Three men have already been jailed in connection to Dimitrovski's brutal murder.

Two suspects were given nine to 10 years in jail for manslaughter, while a third was sentenced to four years behind bars for being an accessory. A fourth man was acquitted.

Justice Anthony Derrick said during the trial that Hussaini remained a suspect of interest in the killing of the 36-year-old .

Dejan Dimitrovski was declared dead in August, 2017; with authorities discovering him lying in a pool of blood and water.

It was clear he suffered before he ultimately died, with investigators noting he had suffered significant blunt force trauma injuries to his face.

There were also multiple stab wounds to his torso and foot, as well as strangulation injuries to his neck.

Police found an array of ropes, cling film, empty water bottles and duct tape nearby, indicating the man was likely tortured before his death.

Authorities arrested Hussaini at the scene of the killing and questioned him, however he fled to Afghanistan two weeks later.
