A man accused of shooting a Dutch detective writer is expected to go on trial next month.

Christopher Hughes, 33, from Glasgow, is accused of killing criminal blogger Martin Kok, 49, in the Boccaccio sex club near Amsterdam on December 8, 2016, and of trying to assassinate him the same day.

During a virtual hearing, Donald Findlay QC acting on Hughes’ behalf; Alex Prentice QC, prosecution; and Judge Lady Scott, discussed how the case would proceed in the High Court in Glasgow.

Hughes is also charged with importing and delivering cocaine between December 2011 and January 2020, in possession of firearms and firearm accessories in order to deliver them to others and use them to commit acts of violence.

He is also charged with activities related to serious organized crime, including leasing property and buying vehicles under false names, storing and hiding money, and transporting money, drugs and firearms.

Hughes denies all allegations.
