The man wanted for questioning in relation to the feud murder of The Monk's nephew will fight extradition to Ireland.

Jonathan Keogh (31) was arrested in the UK after gardai issued a European warrant for his arrest.

The Dubliner was detained by armed officers from the National Crime Agency (NCA) earlier this month in the Romford Area.

He has been held in a London prison since his arrest and has appeared before Westminster Magistrates Court on a number of occasions.

He was scheduled to appear again yesterday morning via video link, and another hearing has been scheduled for August.

Keogh plans to fight his extradition to Ireland where he is wanted for questioning over the gangland feud murder of Gareth Hutch.

The father-of-one was shot dead outside his apartment in the north inner city in May last year.

Gunmen

CCTV images captured Gareth Hutch walking to his vehicle before two gunmen approached him from behind and fired a number of shots at him.

Exclusive images obtained by the Herald show Keogh being detained by elite police officers from the UK's National Crime Agency.

His brother, Michael, became the latest victim of the ongoing bloody Hutch/Kinahan feud when he was gunned down last month.

Michael Keogh (37) was considered a soft target and is not believed to have been directly involved in the gangland feud.

Detectives from Mountjoy Garda Station issued the European Arrest Warrant for Jonathan Keogh earlier this year.
