THE story about a 25-year-old murder on the island of Orkney could be made into a Netflix series.

True crime author, WensleyClarkson, has spent years researching convicted murderer Michael Rossand the shooting of Shamsuddin Mahmood and now says the online streaming service have been in touch.

The writer is appealing for people to get in touch if they have any information which can help him with his book about the case.

Mr Clarkson, whose interest in the 1994 murder was sparked when he visited several years ago, has returned to Orkney this month on a fact-finding mission.

On the evening of June 2, 1994, Bangladeshi waiter Shamsuddin Mahmood was shot dead at the Mumutaz restaurant in Bridge Street, sparking a full-scale murder investigation.

Mr Mahmood was shot in full view of a room full of diners, including families with children, by a masked gunman.

Though questioned at the time, it was another 12 years before Michael Ross was apprehended for the crime.

The former Black Watch sniper, who was 15 at the time of the shooting, was jailed for a minimum of 25 years in 2008 at the High Court in Glasgow after being convicted of murder.

Last year, he admitted attempts to escape from HM Prison Shotts, where he is currently serving his sentence. This came shortly after news that high-profile lawyer Aamar Anwar would be representing him in an appeal case.

Mr Clarkson said: “It’s an incredible story. I think it’s one of the most extraordinary true crime stories in UK criminal history.”

Having already secured a book deal, Mr Clarkson has aspirations of bringing the story to Netflix which he says, has shown interest in making a six-part series about the case.

For now, he is trying to get folk who were involved in the case, or who knew Shamsuddin Mahmood or Michael Ross, personally, to come forward.

He added: “I’m really interested in speaking to witnesses who were in the restaurant, to Michael’s ex-girlfriend, and to anyone who knew Shamsuddin when he was here in Orkney.”

“To be fair to the people who are fighting for his innocence, they deserve a voice as well, and they will get a voice in my book, because what I’m trying to do is look at it from all angles.”
