A man shot dead in a gangland killing in Utrecht on Wednesday evening was due to testify in a murder case, the Telegraaf said on Thursday.

Ranko S, 45, was due to appear in court this week to give evidence in case focusing on a well-organised gang who carried out contract killings, the paper said. The windows of his home had been smashed earlier.

S was shot dead by two men on a moped who drove off at top speed in the Overvecht district of the city. Police have found no trace of the men.
