Runaway oligarchs "nahimichil with political asylum, and a witness" removed "?

April 2 2007

In the now famous "Litvinenko case" came an unexpected twist - a former Russian secret service may have been poisoned as one of two witnesses, a large-scale rigging by which controversial businessman Boris Berezovsky, once received political asylum in the UK and due to this "hidden" from Russian justice.

Last such a witness, the survivor, said he feared reprisals and asked for protection from Scotland Yard and the Prosecutor General of Russia. Now he is under the protection of two countries.

According to the story of a new witness - Peter (for obvious reasons, his real name is hidden), audio recording that saved Berezovsky's extradition from the UK, was faked.

Litvinenko suggested that the witness stated that he was an agent of the FSB and sent to London for the attempt on the oligarch. During these admissions are 2 million pounds, and subsequently the amount of "fee" has risen to 40 million. After refusing, Peter slipped into the coffee psychotropic substances and was asked to retell the meaning of the sentence Litvinenko a certain lawyer. The witness claimed that, based on those words with the help of editing and audio recording was faked confessions, which became the main argument on the issue of extradition of fugitive tycoon. In early September 2003, Berezovsky was granted political asylum.
