YANGON: A British teacher wanted by police after his colleague was found dead in his Yangon apartment has fled the country, the Myanmar government said on Monday.
Police said the 47-year-old victim, named as Briton Peter Gary Ferguson, was found dead on Sunday with wounds to his head and chest.
His wife reportedly discovered the body inside an apartment belonging to his 25-year-old colleague and compatriot, Harris Binotti.

Myanmar’s ministry of information said Binotti had left the country on Sunday, but gave no further details on his whereabouts.
