Glenrothes Siddique murder trial: three found guilty of murder

Three men on trial over the shooting and death of a Glenrothes businessman have been found guilty of murder.

David Green, area procurator fiscal for Fife, commented on the “despicable crime” committed by the three men convicted for the part they played in the murder of Mohammed Nadeem Siddique.

Tencho Hristov Andonov, was convicted on Wednesday, 29 February, at Edinburgh High Court, of shooting and killing Mohammed Nadeem Siddique and the attempted murder of David Dalgleish in Glenrothes, on 24 October 2010.

Mohammed Azam Siddique, the victim’s brother, and Deyan Nikolov were also found guilty of the murder.

David Green said: “This is a crime motivated by greed. A tragic case of brother turning against brother and of a price being put on the victim’s life.

“No violent act should go unpunished and no one who kills for reward should be allowed to escape justice. Today Andonov, Siddique and Nikolov have rightly been found guilty for their despicable crimes.

“Today’s conviction is testament to the close co-operation between officers from Fife Constabulary and COPFS. This was a very complex case, the successful prosecution of which reflects dedication and effective communication by staff across both organisations.”

The three men were prosecuted by the Crown’s Advocate Depute John Scullion.
