Two men have been sentenced to prison for killing Tudor Simionov, a former Romanian rower who was killed on the past New Year’s Eve, on the night of January 1, 2019 in London, where he worked as a bodyguard in a nightclub.

The main suspect in this case is still wanted for murder, with British authorities saying he would have fled to Morocco after the attack.

Adam Khalil, aged 21, from Brent, and Haroon Akram, aged 26, from Fulham, have pleaded guilty for manslaughter and have been sentenced to prison by a court in UK, the Metropolitan Police announced, according to Sky News.

However, 26-year-old Ossama Hamed, the main suspect in this case, is still on the run being wanted by the police for manslaughter, assault and injury. Hamed reportedly fled to Morocco the next day after the attack.

Interim chief inspector Garry Moncrieff, who coordinated the investigation in this case, said that Tudor Simionov’s family had been “completely devastated, and “their life will never be the same”.

Moncrieff said that Ossama Hamed had played a significant part in this attack, adding it was “a sustained, brutal attack” where the defendants “acted together as a group and had the intention to cause serious injuries to anyone how stood in their way.”

Simionov’s fiance launched a call for any information that would help catch the main suspect.

Tudor Simionov, who was just 33 years old, working as security guard, was stabbed to death as he tried to stop gatecrashers forcing their way into an exclusive Mayfair party.
