Former murder suspect willing to meet Michaela Hart’s family

A former suspect in the Michaela McAreavey murder says he is willing to meet with her family to answer any questions they have for him.

Ex-hotel worker Sandip Moneea, who was found guilty of the teacher’s murder in 2012 but later had his conviction quashed, has vowed to help them in their pursuit of justice.

Mr Moneea, 52, had a theft charge against him in connection with the case struck out in June and is now set to sue authorities in Mauritius, the Irish Mirror reported.

Nobody has been convicted of the murder of Michaela, 27, (photo) who was strangled at Legends Hotel on her honeymoon in January 2011.

Former attorney general Rama Valayden, who represents Mr Moneea, said his client would like to meet with Michaela’s family.

He told the Irish Sunday Mirror: “The whole family would like to do so. They have been fasting and praying for the truth.

“Sandip will not sleep until the true killers are found.

“They are fasting rigorously and begging Lord Jesus to show the light. I firmly believe in the innocence of Mr Sandip Mooneea.”

Mr Valayden said Mr Moonea has not been able to return to a normal life since first being arrested.

He added: “Poor chap has been suffering like a mad dog. In a small island the eyes of neighbours are more dangerous than any weapon of mass destruction.

Mr Valayden said Sandip married one week before but he did not have the means to pay for a honeymoon. He ended up having free disgusting meals in prison.”

He claimed from “day one the police was under political pressure to treat the inquiry with a sense of urgency at the expense of thorough scientific examination”.

Mr Valayden repeated his calls for a cash reward and immunity for anyone who comes forward with information.

He added: “A hefty reward should be given to any person giving reliable information leading to the arrest of the accused parties.

He added that the DPP could contemplate amnesty to any person who has helped commit the murder and “who comes forward to speak the truth.”
