First Minister Humza Yousaf’s brother-in-law has been charged with abduction and extortion following an incident where a man fell from a block of flats and later died.

Ramsay El-Nakla, 36, is expected to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court later.

Ryan Munro was seriously injured in the fall in Morgan Street on 10 January and died a week later.

Three other people were arrested and charged and appeared in court last week following the same incident.

Mr El-Nakla is the brother of Mr Yousaf’s wife Nadia El-Nakla.

Jennifer Souter appeared in private at Dundee Sheriff Court last week charged with the culpable homicide of Mr Munro.

Stephen Stewart, 50, and Victoria McGowan, 41, were charged with abduction and extortion following the incident.

Ms Souter is alleged to have threatened, intimidated and detained the 36-year-old man against his will with a view to extorting money from him and placing him in a state of fear and alarm.

It is claimed she committed culpable homicide by putting Mr Munro in fear for his safety and causing him to fall from a second floor window, resulting in fatal injuries.

She made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody by Sheriff John Rafferty.

Neither Mr Stewart nor Ms McGowan made any plea to the charge against them and both were granted bail.

Mr Munro sustained serious head injuries when he fell about 30ft.
