AS PART OF a new international joint police operation, Gardaí have issued a fresh appeal for information about a Dutch national who is wanted by Belgian authorities.
Morgan Schreurs, who is believed to be about 39-years-old, is suspected of killing a Belgian national in Brussels in November 1999. At that time, police received intelligence that he was working on a building site in Munich but was later thought to have moved to Dublin where he may have worked in a number of pubs under the alias DJ Morgandroid.
Schreurs has been highlighted as part of Interpol’s Operation Infra-Red 2012 which hopes that enhanced global cooperaation will see more high-profile criminals located and arrested. The mission focuses on serious crimes including murder, child sex abuse, rape and fraud.
Schreurs is one of 25 targets of the international media phase which the General Secreatariat has chosen from a list of 500 subjects. The wanted men and women come from 57 countries worldwide, covering six continents. During this phase of the international fugitive operation, members of the public are invited to provide any relevant information which may assist police in tracking down some of the world’s most wanted people.
DJ Morgandroid in Dublin
Gardaí in Pearse Street and Store Street said they carried out extensive enquiries around the area in 2002 to identify Schreurs. They believed he was working as a barman and part-time as a DJ using the stage name DJ Morgandroid, which he also used in Germany.
In 2004, further leads were investigated by the Garda Bureau of Fraud Investigation which indicated that the suspect had been found in possession of an Irish person’s VISA card with no valid reason during his time in Munich. Due to difficulties incurred when trying to contact the card holder, Gardaí were unable to clarify whether or not Schreurs was known to him.
The wanted man is described as about 6 foot in height and has a scar over his left eye. He was born on 15 May 1973 and speaks Dutch, German, English and French. It is possible that he uses an alias but no specific details are known with regard to what identities he has assumed in the past.
In other information received in 2001, Schreurs had been treated in hospital in Munich when he was allegedly informed that he had liver damage that may require an operation.
A European Arrest Warrant has been issued for the subject in relation to this investigation.
