A man who pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Dragos Carabineanu in Barnet now awaits sentencing.

Gabriel Silvera, 19, of Uxbridge Road, Pinner, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court yesterday (Monday, June 3), where he pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

The plea was accepted by the court and Silvera was remanded in custody to appear at the same court for sentencing on August 23.

Shortly after 5am on Saturday, October 28, police were alerted by hospital staff when Dragos Carabineaunu, 46, was brought into a central London hospital for treatment.

Dragos, who was from Burnt Oak, remained at St Mary’s Hospital in a critical condition before he sadly died from his injuries on November 1, 2023.

A police investigation found he suffered his injuries just before midnight on October 27, 2023, outside Burnt Oak Underground Station on Watling Road in Edgware.

Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command arrested Gabriel Silvera on suspicion of murder on November 6, 2023. He was charged the following day and was remanded in custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Linda Bradley, who is leading the investigation, said: “Nothing can bring Dragos back to his loved ones, however, I am pleased that this guilty plea has spared them the experience of a trial, where they would have once again heard the details of the incident that took Dragos from them. Our thoughts are with them.”
