Moira’s killer sent back to Slo­vakia to be near fam­ily

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News - By Paul Drury

THE man who mur­dered a Scots busi­ness­woman in a city park has been allowed to re­turn to his na­tive Slo­vakia to be nearer to his fam­ily.

Marek Har­car was re­spon­si­ble for the sex murder of Moira Jones ten years ago in Glas­gow. He was caught on CCTV grab­bing 40-year-old Ms Jones as she tried to park her Toy­ota 4X4 at her flat in Queen’s Park.

He dragged her into un­der­growth where he raped her and in­flicted 65 sep­a­rate in­juries by beat­ing and stamp­ing on her.

Har­car was jailed for life in 2009 for the rape and murder and or­dered to serve 25 years be­hind bars.

Last night, it was re­vealed that he had been allowed to re­turn to Slo­vakia to serve out the re­main­der of his sen­tence at a prison in the town of Ban­ska Bys­trica. The move was per­mit­ted un­der the Coun­cil of Europe Con­ven­tion on the Trans­fer of Sen­tenced Pris­on­ers.

It means he can re­ceive vis­its from his fam­ily once a month.

JAIL: Marek Har­car

VIC­TIM: Moira Jones
