Dutch authorities will today continue their efforts to extradite two Dublin men wanted in connection with the death of a man in Amsterdam.

The body of Keith Ennis from Walkinstown in Dublin was found inside a suitcase in a canal in March 2009.

The well-known Dublin criminal was on the run from Gardaí, having fled the country while facing gun and drug charges.

The Dutch police are seeking the surrender of Kenneth Brunell from Palmerstown and Barry McArdle from Drimnagh, who were arrested on foot of extradition warrants issued in 2011.

The High Court has already heard that a decision has been made to charge and try the two men in the Netherlands.

However, lawyers for the wanted men believe their extradition would violate their constitutional rights.

A third suspect, Philip County from Lucan has already been extradited and the High Court will resume hearing arguments on behalf of Brunell and McArdle later today.
