Australia: Man arrested at Sydney Airport over ‘shooting murder’ of lawyer, 65, at cafe – just minutes before he was about to board an international flight to Bali

February 13, 2018

A man has been arrested at Sydney International Airport in relation to the shooting murder of criminal lawyer Ho Ledinh late last month.

The 65-year-old was gunned down as he sat outside Happy Cup cafe in a prominent shopping strip in Bankstown, in the city’s west, on January 23.

A 38-year-old man was arrested by NSW homicide squad as he prepared to board a flight to Bali just before 10am on Tuesday.

He has been taken to Mascot Police Station, where he is assisting with inquiries.

Strike Force Eugene was set up in response to the shooting of Mr Ledinh, a leading lawyer in the city’s west who had represented gangland clients.

Mr Ledinh was brutally murdered when a gunman wearing a hi-vis top rushed inside the Happy Cup cafe, shot him up to four times and fled as he fell to the floor.

Despite the best efforts of paramedics and a close friend, crying out ‘say something, please!’, they could not revive him.
