The case of Alexander Litvinienko, who has been poisoned by a radioactive substance last year, is a very famous one because entire Europe has watched him die. The Murder was not the most intelligent man of all leaving traces of radioactivity on all his paths and being identified very quickly as Andrei Lugovoi.
So this leaves me with some questions:
“Is it o.k. to kill a European, Asian, African or American if you are Russian”?
“Will Moscow (Putin) help you to get away with it?”
“Should the rest of the World watch?”
London wants Andrei Lugovoi for questioning. There is no guarantee that he is the murder and until the courts say otherwise there is the Presumption of Innocence.
