MI5 and MI6 have been ordered to declassify documents in the case of ex-FSB officer Aleksandr Litvinenko, who died in London in 2006 from radioactive poisoning. The papers are expected to shed light on Russia’s alleged involvement in the matter.
The data request came from Dr Andrew Reid, the St Pancras Coroner, who is conducting an investigation into the death of Litvinenko, reports The Daily Mail.
For instance, the notion that Litvinenko had been poisoned with Polonium was reported extensively by the media. Dunkerley, however, contacted the coroner’s office seeking clarification, and learned that in fact no certification had been issued as to the cause or manner of death. Officially, it has not been settled that Litvinenko’s death was a homicide, or that he died from Polonium poisoning. But now, with the possibility of MI5 and MI6 files being declassified, new unexpected details of this spy thriller could be made public.
Поняли, да? Не существует официальных английских документов, где бы говорилось, что Литвиненко умер от отравления Полонием. И не существует официальных английских документов, где бы говорилось, что Литвиненко был убит.
